But she came out of the surgery with flying colors and bearing more than a slight resemblance to Rocky Balboa:
Thank goodness for bloggy-friends is all we can say.....Amy from Passages to the Past was in constant contact with A Reader's Respite from the time we arrived at Seattle Children's Hospital till we came home from the hospital (and beyond).

And now on to other business....in all of the hullabaloo, A Reader's Respite missed announcing a winner of Sarah Dunant's novel Sacred Hearts, but we hope the entrants haven't given up on us. Kid 2 was feeling well enough this morning to hit the randomizer button and pick us a winner!
Sheila from from One Person's Journey Through a World of Books, you won!

And now on to the best part of the day....Weekend Cooking with Beth Fish Reads. Today A Reader's Respite thought we'd share our favorite Book-Blogger dish ever. Here's what you'll need:
- One book blogging buddy who lives nearby
- A small collection of the absolute WORST books you've read in the past few months (really...they have to be just awful!)
- A local restaurant that serves sinful breakfast dishes
Mix all and enjoy! If you do it right, the result is a fabulous few hours full of laughter at the awful books (which you then must exchange with each other), tons of good book recommendations, a full tummy and dirty dishes that you don't have to clean up after. It's terrific fun!
