Alice’s Restaurant

As I mentioned over on my goals thread on FF, I go under the knife on May 30th.  It’s supposed to be laproscopy and hopefully outpatient, but if the tumor turns out to be cancer I may have to stay in the hospital for a while.

I have no idea how much this will affect my blog.  As I promised over on FF, I will keep Suzie updated, even maybe working ahead a bit to be sure it’s covered, though it might not go up until kind of late the Friday following surgery, particularly if I have to talk Mr. Al through the posting process.

Mr. Al is working feaverishly to provide me with extra Tudor episodes to be posted next week and the week following.  I might have to miss a day or two here and there, particularly right after the 30th.

I still have a bit to say about Belize, but it’s winding down, and I’ll always have way too much to say about writing.

Bear with me.  I’m sure this is only a little blip in my life.



  1. Oh, Lady, I’m sure everyone won’t mind if you miss a few days. Take care of yourself and know that everyone will be thinking about you.

    A little tip though-I had a laparo in January. That carbon dioxide gas they talked about moving through your body before it dissolves really does *hurt*! But I found that having aspercreme or the equivalent rubbed into the hurt-y places helped it for hours.

    Fingers crossed for you,

  3. Hugs and many many many good thoughts, Alice!

    We’ll still be here when you get back, so don’t worry about missing a day or two.

  4. Your health and well-being definitely come first. As much as we all love Suzie, and Mr. Al’s Tudor installments, we all hang out here because we care about you. Here’s praying for a speedy and uncomplicated recovery!

  5. It is just a BLIP. You will come back guns blazing. Good luck with the surgery and let’s pray it’s NOT the big ‘C’

  6. Hi Sarah and Suzane. Thanks for dropping by.

    I don’t think it’s going to be a big problem to keep up with everything. Except dishes. Mr. Al and the kids can deal with dishes. 😀

    Seriously, the doctor said it should only be a few days of soreness, if they don’t find anything new to deal with.

  7. Alice — you are truly tooo dedicated to “us”. . .we’re here for you, not the other way around! You take care of yourself first.

    Praying for you!

  8. Ditto to what everybody has said Alice. The last thing you need to worry about is keeping things going here. The only thing we will really need is updates on your progress, please! And when you are feeling fit again we’ll all be here waiting for you. So please don’t worry about a thing and think of yourself a little bit. Take care. Hugs!

  9. Mr. Al suggested I post pictures of the operation. Um…. no.

  10. Don’t worry, Alice. Get this taken care of and take some time for a complete recovery. We will all be here when you get back!



    P.S. I promise we will give you a few days after the proceedure before bugging you for a Suzie!
