My surgery is tomorrow and I am so glad it's finally here. This waiting around has been no fun all. OH the nervousness and crabbiness that comes along with it. I have been a little uptight for the last several days. Not every moment, but most of the moments that I was not busy. LOL.
I didn't know I was crabby until Jadyn told me. I gave her an impatient sounding answer to one of the "many questions that 5 year olds ask every single day". I immediately apologized and said, "I'm sorry Jadyn, Mommy is just so........" She filled in the blank for me and said, "Crabby?" I laughed and told her she was right. So that's it. Mommy is crabby.
My poor family. They've had to live here and deal with my crabbiness. I wonder if they'll be glad to see me finally go. I think we'll all enjoy the relief.
I've never really had major surgery, and so I've been a bundle of nerves. It's helped so much to talk to friends who've had a hysterectomy or another type of surgery. They've all assured me that I'll be fine. I told a couple of them that I want the drugs NOW. Ha ha.... Just kidding....sort of.
I have tried to stay busy during the past week. I ran errands, I painted a room in our house, I cleaned a lot, I had a gathering of friends over, I ran more errands. I cleaned even more. If it's not nailed down, I've probably put it through the washer. Knowing that I won't be able to do any type of housework other than the light stuff has me on a cleaning frenzy.
I do ask for your good thoughts and prayers for tomorrow and in the coming days. Thank you so much. I appreciate every single one.
Here is a silly picture of Jadyn. She had the background from a sheet of stickers on her face. :)
Here she is, having some fun with bubbles.
