Wanna see my scar?

Just kidding!
Trying to keep my sense of humor here and I believe I'm doing a pretty good job of it.

Instead of some old scar, I'll show you a dramatic floral arrangement I got while still in the hospital.
The nurses and other assorted health professionals all ooohed and aaahed over it and one of them took a photo of it with her phone. She said she was going to use it as her phone background pic/wallpaper or whatever you call it.

They all went crazy for the exotic-looking Bird of Paradise flowers. It certainly is a unique arrangement, from a really unique friend.

I was trying to be artsy yesterday morning and I snapped photos without the flash. I just used the sun coming through the window.

Below find close-up of one of the Bird of Paradise blooms.

Oh! and I didn't even have to go on a cruise to get a towel animal. This little guy greeted me when I arrived in my room after surgery.

I'll show you mine, if you show me yours?!

Haha, did you laugh?

What exactly is that towel animal? I wanna say piggy, but I am not really good at identifying the rare towel breed of animals. You don't see any in Pennsylvania... EVER!

haha ~ no towel animals in Pa., huh?

I think it's a duck, because my surgeon is into rubber ducks. I actually wrote two stories for the paper about the duckies...a paint-a-duck contest to benefit the new Breast Wellness Center. ;-)

That's a gorgeous photo of the bird of paradise.

I'm blown away that you were sent home so soon and that you're already on the computer and cracking jokes. I'll admit, your post title took me a little aback!

The flowers are gorgeous!

And that towel animal is adorable!

Big hugs :]

Trying to do some catching up this evening and reading your latest posts. I'm with Lisa, though, I have no idea what that towel animal is! I guess it could be a duck ...

Those flowers are absolutely gorgeous! What a beautiful arrangement! I think I'd use a picture of it for my wallpaper, too, if I had the chance!
