Good day/bad day?: Well, I've had better
The day itself wasn't that bad, had an interesting day in a management retreat, but then I got home and was feeling overwhelmed and cranky. I'm ready to have this surgery over with, to get on with it and through it and come out the other side in whatever shape I'm going to be. But of course I'm scared.
One of my other concerns is when I'll be able to use my arms well again. They've said that people can be recovered in 1-2 weeks and able to do some lifting, but nobody can tell me how long it will take to be able to lift 24 lbs of wiggles. That's the hard part--this would be easier if I had an end date to when I could be lifting Olive again.
So the details: I show up tomorrow at 7:15 to go for radioactive particle injections, and then my surgery will be from about 9AM-1PM. Ben will do his best to give an update some time tomorrow, but be sure to cut him some slack, too. Hopefully just a one-night stay if no complications, and then back home to take a couple of weeks off from work. We'll just see how it goes...
I will take any positive and loving thoughts you want to send my way.
Goodbye, ladies. We've had 35 good years together, and you got to fulfill your destiny for almost a year.
Thank you all!
