Celebrate The Small Things -- Jan 16

It's Friday and I'm Celebrating The Small Things!  Celebrate The Small Things is a weekly celebration where some bloggers have decided to post about something worth matter how big or small it is.  I am thrilled to co-host this wonderful blog!

This week I'm celebrating my new scooter! I'll be writing a more in depth post on it tomorrow, but the short story is that I ordered a seated scooter to help out after my foot surgery next week. I'm glad that it came in time and that I can fit on it! I'm a 4'9”...and was worried that my feet may not reach the floor! Luckily, I can reach, and it seems like this will be helpful in getting around the house a bit.

I'm also celebrating the fact that I can stay on all my prescription medications as part of my pre and post-surgery routine (click here to read about my pre-op medicine routine for my last surgery). One of the hardest things about my past two surgeries was having to come off my anti-inflammatory Celebrex a week before surgery, and wasn't able to take it again until about 6 weeks post op. Yowza! I hurt to even think about it!! So glad I don't have to go through that again.

I will probably be skipping next Friday's Celebrations, as I'm having surgery the 22nd and will most likely be too drugged up to write anything that makes sense :) Hoping to be back the week after!

What are you celebrating?

  1. Glad you took on this bloghop for Vicki. Hope everything goes well with your surgery.

  2. I'd love to have a new scooter. Off any meds is a good thing!

  3. Good luck with the surgery and I wish you COMFORT! The scooter sounds like a great idea, wee person. God bless!

  4. Hi Katie. A new scooter? Now we're talking! I do hope things go well. Look forward to hearing about the post op. have a lovely weekend.

  5. Hope all goes well with the surgery. I wish I could just kick all the drugs my doctors have me on, but I'm scared because maybe they're right about me needing them.

    A scooter might be fun and practical. I'm scared of stuff like that. I haven't even ridden a bicycle since I was a kid. Kind of dumb of me I guess.

    Tossing It Out

  6. I hope the surgery goes well, sounds like the scooter will be a big help.

  7. I'm sorry to hear that you have to go through so many surgeries, but congrats on the scooter! Sounds like something my kids would love to have. ;o)

  8. That scooter sounds like fun. I hope the surgery and recovery go well so that you get to go grocery shopping again. Have a good weekend!
