Our little Omaha trip happened to coincide with the 25th anniversary celebration of the Pope Paul VI Insititute. This included a conference at the end of this week and then a family day celebration today. I slept amazingly well last night and was feeling so much better, so we decided to go down to celebrate for awhile.
A bunch of the nurses recognized me and asked how I was feeling, which was nice. We browsed around some of the booths and bought some books. But mostly we just sat and watched people. I am on the mend, after all.
The first door prize was drawn after about an hour. $25.00 gift card to our favorite local eatery (not chain) and $100 florist gift card. I thought...that would be perfect! We could have lunch there and also send flowers to our hosts (the couple who is generously hosting us at their home for a week between the two surgeries) for free! And...WE WON!
So, yeah, it was a pretty awesome morning. Not as awesome as being at home, but good anyway.
