It's been two years since my surgeries, and I really think that everyone should get to celebrate that they're alive every year. It's so much fun! (It has been argued that this is what birthdays are for, but I think it's different. Feels different to me, anyway.)
So the anniversary of the second surgery was on Saturday, and we decided to go out to dinner to commemorate the occasion. There's a local Italian place called Strizzi's that I've been wanting to try, plus Kyle won a gift card at a work party last month. It was decided! We walked around downtown Livermore while we waited and then got to sit at a tall table (I love tall tables!). The food was really good and we sat around saying things like, "Two years ago I couldn't have eaten this food, since it's definitely not a clear liquid diet," and remembering how my awesome friends and family got me through.
It was a good evening.

I agree that it's different. Being born isn't the same thing as almost dying. Happy Holly Day!
Hooray for your living life! I'd have been a sad duck otherwise. But now I'm a happy duck! You're right. We should all celebrate! Weeeeeee!
