I’ll Be Back…

Probably in a day or so…

Surgery is today – late morning – or whenever they get around to me I suppose.

My daughter and grandkids will be at the house by the time I get home from surgery and (terrible Mom that I am) I have already given her a couple chores to do when she gets in.  Sad huh? 

Their travels have been good – the overnight ride on the train has been a wonderful experience for her and the kids.  She said it was great having them contained in a roomette.  Everyone slept well and having a toilet in the room is a must when you travel with kids who never have to ‘go’ at the same time.  My neighbor Mrs. B will pick them up at the train station for us.

I woke up early this morning because they said I could have some clear liquid today if I had it before 6:30 am.  So I did that and then got a shower – not an easy feat but a necessary one.  ‘Cat Baths’ only do so much.  I have ordered a bathtub transfer seat and a hand held shower hose – hopefully they will be in by the end of the week.

My Mug Rug Arrived!  Greenmare from Mare’s Nest had a Mug Rug Give Away to celebrate 300 posts.  Well – sad to say - I didn’t get in to comment on the post – but she took great sympathy on me when I wrecked my knee and sent me one anyway!  Take a look at the picture on her blog – it’s the blue scrappy one at the top left of the picture.  Thanks so MUCH Mare!  You are a sweetie and my Mug Rug will be put to good use during my prison sentence convalescence in this chair.

I’ll see y’all in a day or so…

I wish you good luck with your surgery. Enjoy the bits you can and ignore the rest during your recovery.
