Will I survive....

The preparations for my castle visit??? My surgery is Monday and I am not nearly as concerned about the procedure itself as I am about getting my house and more importantly my family ready for my surgery and recovery! The laundry, the dishes, the cooking, the cleaning, the packing the lists, the grocery shopping, the pets.....yikes! I am no good at letting this stuff go but I am going to be good and ready for that rest period following the surgery!

ldjon5 Hope you have help( a mother, mother-in-law, close friends, helpful, understanding husband,etc.) when you get home. You're going to need it. The main thing I can tell you is that you will have to let it go until you feel better. If you feel like doing something, try it, take a break and see how you feel then go from there. If you do have good help, let them do it. It will be there when you get back on your feet. You remind me of myself. I thought I had to have everything in order before my surgery. That was the least of my worries after my surgery. Just put the blinders on or ask for help for about two weeks and then you may feel like worrying about things after that. Even then, don't overdo it. Remember: Dull women have emaculate homes. Catch up on your soaps if you watch them, read the latest best seller, watch Oprah,etc. Do all the things you can get away with while you can. Good luck on your surgery and know that we'll be here when you get back. That's when you'll need to talk. Believe me!

Hi Linda!

O.K.... breathe.... slow down a little. Actually, you sound just like me on the Sunday before my Monday surgery! I know how you must be feeling about now.

If you're like me, then the answer is YES, you will survive! I got everything done that I could, but not everything on my list (d'ya wanna talk about LISTS???? ) did get done.

Best thing to do is to take one single little thing at a time, take care of it, then move on to the next thing, without thinking ahead to the other things on your 'list' of things to do. One item at a time. And prioritize, because there is a chance you won't get all of it done, and guess what? That will be O.K., too! Oh, and add to the list (toward the top priority) to breathe and relax just for you.

We're on your side cheering you on, sweetie! Hoping everything goes really well for you, and you come home soon a new princess who has learned how to let things go so she can be pampered and have a smooth recovery.

Love n Hugs,

Linda - This is my first post here, but when I saw your diagnosis I had to jump in. I had the same surgery nearly four years ago and had no problems. I hope yours will be the same, and I know you will enjoy (and need) the rest. When they served my first meal I did have this reaction but all was well after that. I took full advantage of my three daughters coming down to help out my husband.
