 My surgery is scheduled for early morning Monday.  I am nervous.  I think my spouse is a little nervous also as he has a tendency to be short fused when something is up in his life.  I know I must be hell to live with right now though.  "The fear of the Unknown", looms over us.  I know that it is the right thing to do.  My fasting blood sugars are high, my joints ache, my back kills me every night, and I am sick and tired of being obese.  It only takes one horror story to put the fear of God into me.  I know in my heart that this is the going to be the start of a new and different kind of life for me.  My 2 youngest stepchildren have been staying with us this past week.  It can get hectic for 2 empty nesters!  They are 16 and 9 and full of the "I'm Bored!"
I will be happy to take them home to New Hampshire this Saturday.  That will give us one day to re-arrange my living room into a convalescing room for me to perk up in.  I have a full size bed that will be parked in the living room.  It will be easier to get to the bathroom, as we are a one bathroom family and that bathroom is on the first floor.  I went to Target today and purchased some sample size goods for my hospital stay.  I also have a new pair of Crocs to walk my hospital mile in.  Slip on, Slip off, no laces, no straps.  Easy shoes.  I am starting to realize that I have clothing in all sizes.  I am going to wait until after surgery to see what I want to keep for a while and what can go byby.  I have a friend who already requested my clothing.  She is needy and I am glad I can help her a little.
I could blog all day, but I have other things that I could and should be doing.  Bye for now!
