Heading off to the hospital

I'm up early, showered and dressed - ready for my rides to get here... Yes my rides, plural.  My family sometimes loud and obnoxious, but I'm SOOO glad I have 3 people who are coming with me today.  I would have had more, but really wanted to keep the party to a dull roar, and told some they need to work!  I think there are shifts of people coming to hang with me after.  This is one of the best things about having a big family ;-)

I have not had time to get nervous before.  I was at work for 15 hours + yesterday,  didn't leave last night until 10:15 and then went to the store to get more of the shakes I like best.  No sleep until after midnight.
Staying busy was needed, but also a defense thing.  I work best when busy.  Now that I am sitting here, dressed and just waiting I AM NERVOUS.  I thought I was gonna puke earlier!  Sheesh!  Its like my body saved up the weeks worth of nerves and threw it on me in one day!  My hands are even a little shaky!  So I'm deep breathing and listening to some good Sing-out-loud music, hoping to chill.

If you have a moment today - send some positive vibes my way.  Surgery is at 10:30am eastern time

See you on the other side!
