Ruby Tuesday

My surgeon brought me this balloon just hours after surgery two weeks ago. It was a fun surprise as I was lying there waiting for the effects of anesthesia to subside.
I thought it was sweet of her! It made me smile, and it made my overnight stay at the hospital more pleasant.

Ralph (Airhead 55) suggested I use a photo of it for Ruby Tuesday, since I haven't participated in RT for quite a while. Just can't seem to get organized!

See lots more photos featuring the color red at Mary T's Work of the Poet blog each Tuesday.

I'd say you have a very thoughtful surgeon, Patti! I hope you are healing quickly. I have been thinking about you!

Dear Patti,
I have been missing you. So glad you are back.
Both one of y colleges and my physiotherapist had breast cancer surgery one year and a half ago.
They are both back at work and thriving. Since I have followed them closely, I know you Have had a hard time.
"Knowing" Ralph and yourself, I also know you are on a winning team.

Ralph was right Patti, it's a perfect Ruby!
You must have a very caring surgeon. Such thoughtfulness is indeed rare. It's nice knowing that kind of person was taking care of you. :)
Continued prayers for your healing.

Wow! I can't believe your doctor brought you something! That's highly unusual and very thoughtful and kind!

I had the best GYN doctor for more than 25 years. He did all his own surgeries. His face and voice were always the last ones I saw and heard just before surgery and again the first I saw and heard just after surgery in recovery.

However, he never brought me a balloon!

What an adorable attention !

How thoughtful of your surgeon to do that, they often seem so remote but you've got yourself a real winner there. I'm sure that she put extra care into every stitch as well.

Sending gentle healing thoughts beaming towards Connecticutt.

Ralph is right - great choice! And how sweet that your surgeon brought you a balloon! I think that's the first time I've ever heard of a doctor doing something like that so you must be one very special patient! As you know, you are to me - I'm just glad to hear that your doctor thinks so, too!
