8 Hours Until I am in for Surgery
I have to be at the hospital at 6 am, and my alarm is goingoff at 3:30 so I can get up, shower, and prepare myself for surgery. The actual surgery time is 8 am so I should be in my room by 1 or so. I have just finished cleaning anything and everything in the house, including scrubbing the walls, steam cleaning the carpets, and washing all of my towels and sheets that weren't already in the closet. All in all, I am ready. I managed to get salmonella from some peanut butter crackers over the weekend, but I am feeling well enough to have the surgery. The good part of the salmonella is that I lost 5 pounds in one day so I have exceeded my goal of losing 30 pounds between surgeries. The last 5 were tough, but the food poisoning took me over the top. I think 30 pounds is not bad in about 7 months. Well, my alarm is going off in 5 hours so it is off to bed now. I will update again when I feel up to it.
