More Chicken Collection, and Surgery Outcome

Displaying more of my Chicken Collection - didn't realize how many Chicken and Chicken related items I do have...
See the Crank-up Chicken toy?  It makes a cluck cluck noise when the handle is turned.   The felt Egg Cozy Roosters are vintage, and they are sitting on egg holders with little "Ducky" Slippers!
Here's a lovely Chicken Pitcher, a gift from my sister-in-law a couple years ago, and I created the flower arrangement to fill it.  She's such a kind woman - always looking out for everyone.  When I had surgery(s) she sent me a Get Well Card - chicken themed, of course!
Yes, I did say "surgeries".  If you recall, not long ago I posted about having to have a kidney stone removed.  Simple procedure, sounded like.  Well, not so simple.  The stone had to be blasted out as it was too large to remove otherwise and was blocking some very important functions...
Sparing you much of the details, things did not go well once I was 2 days into my recovery period and so....the following week I had to have a second surgery.  Unfortunately it was not a 'buy one get one free' - but I think it should have been! 
Thankfully, the second time around, recovery went much smoother with a plethora of pain killers to choose from - and I am cleared to go back to work this next Monday.  Today is my first day without any medication - and so far, I'm doing great...

Staffordshire King Charles Spaniel - what is HE doing here?!?  Chicken Guardian, of course!

With the weekend to get my house and life back in order, I'm thinking positive and hope everything goes well during the upcoming work week.  It might feel like MONDAY all week - trying to get my wits back and remember all of the things I need to do after 2.5 weeks away from my job - I will have "vacation brains" for sure!
Wish me luck -
the ChickenWrangler

Girl you have your chickens and I love them all - but the first one has my heart - I like to sleep late.

So glad you are okay and doing well after your surgery.

I love the words on the plaque! Too funny! lol You sure do have a very nice selection of chickens around your house. Then you have the real thing outside!

Glad to hear you are finally pain free from your stones. I hope work goes well Monday too!

Really enjoyed the chicken collection tour. Good heavens girl...I'm with should have been given a BOGO price for those surgeries! Glad that you're mending well this time, and you're probably relieved to be going back to work. Try not to worry or stress. Take care of you. Dixie sends licks(please take 'em!) and good wishes.

With a name like Chicken Wrangler I just had to come and visit! Absolutely love your chicken collections. I'm so lucky to have an organic egg far just down the road so don't keep my own, but I'm tempted.... not sure how well they's mix with kangaroos.

I adore your chicken collection!

Your surgery sounds awful. I'm so glad that's over and behind you now. said...

Happy to hear you're on the mend! Love all of your chicken decor ~ especially your chicken skillet:)

you have quite the kitschy chicken collection.
I think I've gotten rid of lots of mine...but then I look around and there is more than I think!

I had no idea about your kidney stone complications and surgeries. glad to hear you're on the mend, and released to be back at work.

about the 'thank you' note to the New comers in town...great Idea!

Maybe I can get an interview and inside pictures too! Although, picture taking isn't up to snuff. Not like yours!
