Tomorrow my husband, my dad, my mom and I will make the drive from Wichita Ks to Rochester Mn! 602 miles! UGH! I hate driving long hours! But it is just the first part of this journey. I will report for testing at the Mayo Clinic on Tuesday, meet with the cardiologist and surgeon Wednesday and Thursday is the big day!
We are entrusting our "fur babies" with my brother and his wife. We have 3 dogs and 1 cat. I think I will miss them the most! I don't know how I will sleep without my mini pincher curled up next to me and my corgi snoring beside me on the floor!
I really appreciate everyone who had written in my guest book. This is a welcoming community! Thank you all!!
Well I collapsed yesterday morning. Not really sure why, but all of a sudden I was on the floor! Brian and I decided I should stay home from work, so I missed my last two days of work. I am very sad about that. But I am having a presurgery open-house just to see everyone before I leave. That's tomorrow. I hope I feel up to it. I have been pretty tired today but still managed to shampoo the hallway and our bedroom carpet. Don't worry, I didn't move any furniture!! I have three dogs and a cat but I still get lonely while Brian is at work. He should be home in about 2 hours. I am still very anxious about my up coming surgery. Perhaps a nap will help, by the time I wake up Brian should be home. Does anyone else end up taking really long naps? Like mine usually last 2 to 4 hours. Is that strange?
As I lay here in bed with my husband, we are reading up on how long it will take for me to wake up after my surgery. I end up reading way to much scary anesthesia hypotheses on being awake and getting too much gas. Brian says to quit reading but I just can't stop! Have you seen that movie "Awake"? My biggest fear is that movie, minus being rich and having some harlot tricking me and taking all my money. My other fear is getting too much and never waking up at all. I read this book called "Oxygen" about this doctor that gives this child patient the wrong levels and she dies. It turns out the child had an undiagnosed heart defect! UGHH!!
I have only 2 more days of work left. I am kind of relieved but I will miss all my friends there. I am having surgery in 8 days. Let the freak out begin!! Well, it already has begun!
