I'm going to plan to do things like laundry earlier in the evening so that I'm not still doing things at bed time. Also, I'm not going to start watching a TV show that won't be done by 10.

My doctor recommended me on February 14, 2017 and I still have not heard anything from the hospital.

My three girls are 20, 16 and 9.  My middle one in particular is high anxiety and is so worried about me doing this surgery.  She is completely freaked out and is angry that I want to do this.

I was recently transferred from Hamilton to Guelph because Hamilton had a backlog of patients.  My orientation was April 23.  I called today and made an appointment for the nurse for May 11 and for the dietician and social worker for June 8.
