That's me off to my husband's X-mas party.
This was a week before the surgery.
This picture is one my Mom put together for me...
it made me smile!

This is the scar from my surgery.... not so bad!
This was taken one week after the surgery.

It will be gone by next year.

Yeah! I got to be home for Christmas!

A quick THANK YOU! to all of you who sent your love in this really scary moment and your prayers which helped me through and continue to help me heal!
Thank you for all the lovely cards that reminded me to stay positive.

Going through this has made me see things in a different light...my life is on a new road and I love it!

I am slowly getting around to visit you all again.

Wishing everyone a HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!

Thank you all again!

WOW that is a nice looking scar. I had neck surgery August 2006 for two disks. They went through the front like you, maybe a little more toward the side. Mine looked no where that good a week later. It took almost a year before I could wear a high necked top that rubbed against the scar. It looks like yours is going to heal up good. So glad everything is looking good for you. Still praying for you.

May God bless you with a wonderful 2008.

Great Vogue Picture!!!!! :-)
I'm glad to see you're up and about and the scar doesn't look bad at all. My grandmother had a similar surgery way back in the day and her scar was HUGE. I guess we've come a long way since then!
Hugs to you!
