Whoa. 9 days till surgery.
I got a funny letter from Ellie yesterday...
I was going to buy you a card but I spent the money on me instead. It's hard to buy something when your allowance is small, so be happy I made you anything at all.
(I mean what I said about the allowance.)
In Ellie's defense, she is one of my most generous children.
My room is covered with sweet gifts and cards she has made.
She makes me laugh.
Yesterday was a pretty fun day.
I had a friend visit, got a blood transfusion (the nurse forgot to clamp the blood when she unhooked me and it squirted everywhere), ate lunch with Todd and Leah, we sold our Guinea Pigs to a pet store, I read a book, and I watched Extreme Weight Loss.
I had a cute, young doctor come and talk to me yesterday morning. He acted like my surgery would be easy and no big deal. He felt confidant that my recovery would be quick. I honestly sat there in shock. I have NEVER heard a doctor talk positively about my surgery before. I laughed and told him I wanted to talk to him on the morning of my surgery. I would also like to have this doctor in one chair and my main doctor in another chair. Wouldn't it be funny to hear them discuss the same surgery?
I really, really needed to hear his optimism. I'm holding onto that and walking forward.
My kids got lambs this weekend. Yes, we got rid of Guinea Pigs and adopted 4 baby lambs. The lambs will be sold at fair, so they aren't long-term. I am so grateful for sweet friends who help make this possible.
Life is good.
Enjoy your day!!
Ugh. I have a lot of fun pictures but my iphone blogger isn't working well...
