Hi Ho, hi ho it's off to surgery I go...

Needless to say, not much sleep last night. Dying of thirst...nothing to drink since midnight, but for me that's HARD I drink (water, diet soda) like a FISH. I know we've all been through this. Waiting for the babysitter to come so I can leave for the hospital. Afraid of the pain this time...usually I'm really tolerant, but I've been such a baby lately, plus since my last surgery they found out I'm allergic to Morphine so don't know what the alternative is like...oh well, yeah for some good sleep (I hope) Take care all, see you on the other side (of this)...

I'll pray that all goes well with the surgery and that they find the correct pain killer for you! Take caare, Sandyjo
My prayers are with you and I hope they give you some pain medication you can tolerate. Good Luck.
I'm the same way about the water, my tongue even sticks to the roof of my mouth if I go without for long! Praying for a quick, smooth recovery! Take Care, Lisa
Waiting to hear, Shawna. Hope all went well. Andrea
Happy, happy Birthday!! I hope you are doing OK. Let us know how you are! Hugs and sunshine, Sandyjo

Well, so much for my fun weekend...

So, Friday night I got the flu...my youngest had had it earlier in the week and I had been taking care of him hoping beyond hope I would NOT get sick especially with my surgery coming up monday (tomorrow)...Luckily my little one was quite the trooper and bounced back none the worse for wear...however, it hit me like a ton of bricks...so here I am Sunday night (Mother's Day night) no movie, no dinner, no games, no fun food...just a lot of the stuff that comes with the flu...I am feeling a better today (yippee, just in time to lay on my back some more...) Oh, and I have been taking care of my husband today cuz, guess what? he's not feeling so hot today! So in a weird way I am looking forward to my surgery tomorrow so at least I can get some good meds and get some good sleep at least for a little while...
