A Double Dose of Hilary

Hello wonderful and supportive friends of my namesake. 

This is the other Hilary (from The Smitten Image) writing on behalf of our dear friend Hilary (right here at Crazy as a Loom). She sent me an email from her phone, this morning and asked me to let you all know how she is doing.

In a nutshell (and we all know that Hilary is one tough nut), she's doing fantastic! Yay!

Here's her note to me, so that you can read for yourself. And smile. And tear up just a wee bit with relief and gratitude.


This surgey was half as long
I came out of anesthesia ready to rock
I don't understand but I'm grateful
Spasms in neck muscles not bad
This time feels different
My son in law texted me before surgery
And said what I guess I needed to hear
He said:
Kick ass, like you always do.
And I think I did
And I think my mom was in the OR
Just tell everyone that I'm really fine
And thanks for all well wishes and prayers
Think they held me up

Thank you Hilary and Hilary for the update! Although I never had a doubt that Hilary would as her son in law said for her to do...kick ass...I am still having a bout of tears of relief.

I am so very relieved and grateful to hear of your recovery! I have no doubt that your Mom was with you all the way, supporting and lending you her strength as well. I am praying that the special feelings that you are having are the true beginnings of the rest of your beautiful life and look forward to again reading your commentary on the beauty of life, your children and grands, Next and the other cats, and hopefully, the weaving, too. Good luck in finding a new owner for your business in a speedy manor so that you may begin the pursuit of Life on your terms. Thank you and your friend Hilary for letting the rest of your friends know how you are doing and now, get on with your Recovery!
