Saturday After Surgery

Hello readers! As you know, Sarah had ear surgery yesterday morning. Sarah’s doctor found the endolymphatic sac and inserted a shunt during a routine surgical procedure. We went home, watched The Muppet Christmas Carol while singing along loudly, ate food provided for the occasion by one of Lindsey’s colleagues from work, and rested.

Surgery days can be exceptionally stressful. Thank you everyone who prayed for us, kept Lindsey company on Twitter during the procedure itself, and has sent well-wishes of various kinds. We’re both tired, and Sarah’s ear hurts following the procedure — which is to be expected. We’re glad that we planned to have a weekend at home resting.

In yesterday’s post, Sarah shared several pieces of art. Many people asked us if Sarah would ever consider selling some prints. We had been talking about the possibility of creating an Etsy store and decided that it made sense to launch Art Coming Out the Ears today. Sarah’s full art album is available on Flckr. We seeded the store with your recommendations from yesterday. You all have made this blog the kind of place it is on the internet, and we want to involve you in putting pieces in the art store. Which pieces appeal to you most? Would you be interested in greeting cards or postcards? What do you think of Lindsey’s hair-brained idea of making a custom mug with Isidore on it? You can leave a comment here or use our Contact Us page should you want to request a print of something not yet stocked in our store.

Our questions today are: what are some of your favorite things to do while at home during the winter? Do you have any particular favorite movies or documentaries as we prepare for Christmas?

  1. Praying for a healing, restful weekend for you both.

    That said, YAY FOR THE NEW ETSY STORE!!! I’ll be placing an order! Greeting cards/postcards are a *great* idea, and I would definitely buy a custom mug!

    Love you!

    • Thanks for your prayers.

      We’re glad you’re excited about the new Etsy store. We added an option for a greeting card. If you want us to do greeting cards with a particular print, let us know and we’ll get them added to the store.

      Love you too!

  2. The Home Alone movies are always my favourite to watch during Christmas time. 🙂

    Glad everything went as smoothly as possible! Praying for y’all and hoping her pain subsides.

  3. “Home For The Holidays” with Robert Downey, Jr. is one of our favorite Thanksgiving movies. “The Family Stone” is my mom’s favorite Christmas movie along with the original version of “Miracle on 34th Street” with Natalie Wood.
    Hope Sarah has a speedy recovery! (((Hugs)))

    • We’ll have to check out the first two movies. Lindsey’s a big fan of the Mara Wilson version of Miracle on 34th Street. Thanks for the recommendation!
