Thank you for your well wishes and continued support!!!

Life is good
Here is Malaika cruzing the living room floor in her pink rubber duckie : )
I stayed at Malaika's for the 1st week after discharged from the hospital.
Here she is playing with her yellow rubber duckie.
She is chubby yet the doctor said she is not over weight.
She is strapped into her car seat going to her christening. 
Yes, she already likes pearls and bling in her hair : )
Babies are the most precious and dearest!!!
A bit about me:
My neurosurgeon was absolutely wonderful; straight to the point and did NOT sugar coat anything!!! I sincerely appreciate his honesty.
My spine is for want of a better analogy like hard jello and wobbly. Before this year is gone I will go in for my 3rd surgery and a metal rod will be screwed in to stave off the degeneration. It is a stop gap measure yet should give me another 4 or 5 years being able to walk albeit with my jazzy walker. 
I am NOT complaining as I am so grateful to be standing up straight again!!!
Before surgery I was walking stooped over like I had done hard labor all of my life.
Life is going as it should and I am happy!!!
I sincerely appreciate all the care, concern and well wishes from you and as soon as I can sit at this computer I will come and say a personal thank you to all!!!
Right now it is doctor's, labs and housing that I am concentrating on : )
I am a busy bee : )
Hi everyone; this is me today : )
Take care.
Much love and peace to all!!!


  1. Oh Carole it was so great to hear from you! Malaika is growing so fast. What a little beauty she is!
    I am so glad that you are out of the hospital, and that maybe you will have a little normalcy to your life. If you are like me, you have to redefine what normal is, however. You have such a positive attitude and I so appreciate that in a person. Our attitude can get us through a lot of difficult things in our lives, if it's good. If it's bad, it can bury us.
    I am wishing for you, all things good.

  2. So glad that you are doing great! I hope that everything continues to go well for you.

    That baby is NOT chubby! She is absolutely perfect. Love the baby legs but I need more pics of those gorgeous gams! I go gaga for baby legs. Love their little rolls! Love the pink duck! That is so cool. I wish they made one in my size.

    You look absolutely beautiful! I wish I was closer and could help you out. I will be sending lots of love and good wishes your way. You are always in my thoughts and prayers!

  3. Carole, I am wishing you well and a speedy recovery! Keep enjoying that little Malaika every moment.... :)

  4. Hi dear Carole Ann, I am so happy that you are home from the hospital! I have been thinking of you and keeping you in my prayers. I hope that you continue to do better everyday and that you are having relief from the pain you were in. I know you will be alright, your positive attitude helps us more than we realize. I admire you so much, you are one very special lady dear Carole Ann.
    Your Malaika is the most sweetest & precious little baby girl...I just love seeing pictures of her, she always makes me smile! :) Love her pink duck too,how cute is that! :)
