Could time go ANY slower? Seriously. It is not like I am really looking forward to surgery... but the waiting is SO much worse. The thing is.. I have stuff to do... but I don't even feel like doing it.

My floors need cleaned BADLY (I HATE WHITE TILE!).. I NEED to clean my desk at home.. I need to finish the budgets at work. I should get my office cleaned before I go out. I should send out an email to the Sr. Management letting know I won't be here. I should get all the laundry done. See! There is so much busy work to do to help time pass.. but I would rather sit here, do nothing and moan about how slow time is passing.

3 Days. Surgery is scheduled for 7:30am.. I imagine, as usual, they will have me come in around 5:30.. which is fine.. cause I can just roll out of bed and go.. not like it matters what I look like for surgery.

Yesterday was almost a pain free day... I get these bonus days every once in a while.. they make me think that I don't need surgery.. then I wake up this morning and remember why. Ugh.

I have to go research to see if there is anything I can do to make my veins better before surgery.. the last time I had surgery they had to change my IV over 10 times.. my veins kept collapsing.. it ended up in my thumb. Don't know if there is anything I can do.. but I will if it will help. Been taking my vitamins (Gummy Vites because I am a baby and can't take the horsepill vitamins that everyone else takes) and my synthroid everyday to make sure I am healthy on surgery day. Everyone around me is sick.. I keep putting on the Purell hand sanitizer every 30 minutes. =)

Ok... well... at least I occupied 15 minutes rambling on and on. Ugh.

The waiting is the hardest. My surgery was on a Friday also. I'd also get those painfree days before surgery that would make me question the need for surgery. Then, the pain would return with a vengeance and I'd know I had no choice.

You will do fine. Take care and start pampering yourself now. Don't worry about the floors. Do something fun for yourself. You deserve it. S~Moonchime

Drink tons of water. My veins were the same way and the DR. told me to drink alot of water and it worked. Good luck with your surgery. Please keep us up to date when you can!
