First off, thank you ALL so much for all of your sweet, sweet words on encouragement!

Everything went brilliant today and my mum went through surgery with no complications and nothing unexpected. She's feeling OK, but is in some pain, but on good drugs. :graucho:

And now...for the reveal! I was going to give them to her before dinner last night, but we got going and didn't have time. So, when we got home, she showered up and got ready for bed and I gave them to her....so she doesn't look her dolled up best, but that's ok!



Reading the card







She sees the box and is like "WHAT? It can't be...it must just be the box the gift is in."

Explaining to my dad what these are





I realised that the price tag was still on the bottom, but grabbed it off before she could see it!!

sharkbait, the pictures are priceless! i LOVE the excited look on her face and the look on your dad's face as she's trying to explain the shoes to him. ha! they look wonderful on her, don't they? i agree that she has great legs and cute little feet, too. (oh, i hope that doesn't sound weird, but you know what i mean!)

i'm so happy that the surgery went well without any complications. please give her a big hug from her 'love' shoe cousin. :hugs: and please keep us updated on how she progresses.

How sweet! I love her shocked expression. I had no idea they came in flats. Where did you find these?
And I'm glad the surgery went well.

This has got to be one of the best reveals of all time! The shocked expression, and then the pic of her explaining about the shoes to your dad - it's hilarious and heartwarming at the same time. You are a great daughter. So glad that your mom loves her shoes, and to hear that the surgery went well. Keep us posted!
