Out of Commission

By Susan Knight

Posting early because after May 17 I will be recuperating from surgery. I hope I am finally going to get my foot/ankle fixed. If you think about it, please pray for me.

Had the privilege of attending LDStorymakers and came home exhilarated, but exhausted. I am discouraged, yet delighted. You know how it goes. I think, overall, I am overwhelmed. I need a break to decompress from all the information I received. I took notes because my addled brain could not begin to remember all I learned.

Before my surgery, I made sure I planted delightsome colors in my flower gardens and hope to enjoy them through the windows, from my recliner, while convalescing.

I hope you all had a wonderful Mother's Day. Mine was superb. Got to see all my kids. That's what Mother's Day is all about, right?

Have a very pleasant May!


  1. Hope it's going well. Enjoy those flowers. For some reason we are experiencing an awesome Spring...everything is more beautiful than ever.

    1. I'm so glad I planted those flowers. This surgery wasn't as arduous as the last and, with my daughter spotting me, I've been able to get outside to all my flower gardens and have numerous bouquets all over my house to enjoy as well. Thanks for your well wishes, Terri!

  2. Hope all is well from your surgery. Let us know if you can in your next post.

    1. I'm afraid I was a bit down in my next post, but I am hopeful. The doctor gave me a 95% chance of success--meaning I will walk again with no pain. I was supposed to get the cast off last week and should have been back to work this week. But the doctor didn't feel good about taking it off so soon. Friday is the day, I hope. Fingers crossed.
      Thanks for askin'
