Hello from crazy weather Tulsa, OK!!!

We go from over 100 to 80's in just a few hours it seems.  Right now, we're in a cold front - 80's.

I have had a very busy July and wanted to share what I have been up to with you.  I spent a few days in Missouri with my sister Jeannie at the first of the month.  She had knee surgery and was just beginning to get around.  So, we had a fun time.  Didn't do a whole lot but enjoyed the "sister time".

Then,  Tiffany and I made a wild trip for her to be in a wedding in New Hampshire.  We flew into NYC and spent a day an a half running at top speed trying to see all we could see in that short time.  We had a wonderful hotel - The Renaissance Hotel right across from Times Square.

Then we rode the AmTrak to Boston and on to Salem, NH for the wedding.  We flew home and it took me a week to recuperate.  But, it was an amazing trip.

I'm in the full speed mode on the wedding.  Would love to show you some of the creations I have finished up however, I'm having trouble loading my photos from my phone?????  Will show you soon.

Then to the bad news.  Saw the orthopedic surgeon a few weeks ago and am going to have to have shoulder surgery in October.  When I fell in June, I tore the RotoCuff almost completely in two.  He will probably have to do a "graft"? so I'll be in the hospital instead of a surgery center.  I can't drive for 6-8 weeks and I already know I'll go stark raving crazy.  LOL  The recovery will be long.

Right now, I can hardly use my arm to type on the computer.  So would appreciate your prayers for a successful surgery and rapid recovery.  If the rotocuff tears into before then, it will mean immediate surgery.  I'm trying to hold out until after the wedding on September 15th.  

So, just to keep you updated, that's where I've been.  My house looks like a storage facility for flowers and wedding stuff.  Everything is just about done.  It has been so much fun.




  1. Judy, I have thought of you often. I hate that you have to have that surgery....but thankful it will help you. I do not blame you for running all over NYC trying to see as much as possible. I did the same things twice. lol maybe you can get your family to type for you so you can at least visit blogs. Blessings to you, xoxo, Stay strong, Susie

  2. It is so good to hear from you again, Judy! I know how busy you always are. I am so sorry to hear you have to have rotator cuff surgery in October. I don't know how you're going to make it that long until then though. You must be in terrible pain! I had a partial rotator cuff tear a couple of years ago and mine didn't require surgery, but I did have to go through physical therapy for 9 months! It was all very painful. Will keep you in my prayers, dear friend.

  3. Hi Judy. Ahhhhhh so excited for the wedding to be getting closer and closer. I know this is going to be a great day for all of you. Everything will be so beautiful. I am sorry about your rotator cuff tear. Those are miserable. I will definelty keep you in my prayers for a smooth recovery. I wish I lived closer to come by and help you after your surgery. I know you saw on FB about Mary's passing. I will miss her so much as I know you knew her well too. Praying for her son and granddaughter and those two precious pups. Lili and Waldo meant so much to her. I hope Shaun will find good homes for them. Lili reminded me of your Bella. I wish you lived closer I know you would give them a great home. With them being older I worry about what will happen. Can't wait to see pictures of the wedding. John will be smiling down on this special day.

  4. Prayers for your shoulder my friend. I know you are all so busy with the wedding plans. Enjoy!!!

  5. Hugs and prayers for a speedy recovery after your surgery. Don't overdo, and have fun at the wedding!
