This has been a wild week. On Wednesday I finally got the call about the surgery. I was told it was slated for the 17th. Which wasn't my first choice, but let's face it, my first choice isn't a sternotomy at all. So after fretting a bit about my rapidly diminishing summer I decided to suck it up and enjoy life.
Side Note: For those of you from south of the border, around here summer is a rare and precious thing. It lasts approximately 7-8 weeks and is the BEST PART OF THE YEAR. Better than Christmas even. Because Christmas is often cold. No one wants to spend summer recovering from major surgery. That's why God invented November.
So, Thursday morning I decided to take full advantage of the week that lay ahead and spend time planning out my week and organizing playdates. I was even planning to babysit. Because what better way to spend my week than with oodles of high energy boys?
Which means of course that the phone rang at 10:00 and it was my surgeon's office telling me there was a cancellation and I would now be having surgery Monday. This coming Monday.
After hyper-ventilating just a bit I thanked God for PBS kids and made a whole bunch of phone calls cancelling a whole bunch of plans.
I have come to the realization that my job over the next six weeks will be to get better. SOOO, this blog is gonna go dark for a while. How long, I am not certain, but I'm guessing at least a month. BUT I will be back. Probably with bed-pan stories.
However, I cannot quit the Internet cold turkey so you can follow me on Twitter. Please do. I may even give Way Cooler my password (it makes me shake a bit just typing that) so he can update you all. PLUS if you need a hit from the house of geek, Way Cooler has like four weeks of posts pre-written and ready to go on his blog. WARNING: this blog has been known to cause extreme drowsiness when read by a female. Use caution when reading.
I will miss you all and can't wait to be back and more boring than ever. See you in a month or so.
