Thanks all of you for the prayers for Clarice! She made it through her surgery just fine.  The only time she cried was when she had to take off her new purple shirt to put on a hospital gown.  That's when I whipped out the new "Raspberry Girl" from Uncle Joe.  That distracted her for about 30 seconds.  She ended up carrying her shirt into surgery along with the Raspberry Girl.  The surgery and wait to see Clarice in the recovery room seemed like forever.

Clarice got some internal sutures and some surgical glue, so we don't even have to return to the surgeon.  She might be in some pain after the local anesthesia wears off, so the doctor gave her a prescription for Tylenol with codeine.  We'll try to sick with the regular Tylenol.  She's been up and walking around, playing with her new purse and make-up cell phones that my friend Liz gave to her.  (Of course, I'll have to make a card for her.)  Those are sure signs that Clarice is recovering : )

My stamping friend Tina is bringing my family dinner tonight.  Of course, I'll have to make a card for her, too.  However, all card making will have to wait for another day.  I'm quite exhausted from being up since 4 am!

Thank you for the update on Clarice. I prayed for you precious daughter on my way to work this morning and am glad to hear all went well. (I use my commute to work as my quiet time alone with God- no distractions.)

Sue, my friend Wendy, from Oregon, also extended her prayers for Clarice. I was happily surprised when she texted me today reminding me. I told her over a week ago about it and we don't really talk as much as we used to. She's a wonderful person. I miss her. Maybe we can make an Easter card together when I'm home.

Love, your brother Joseph
