I'm a willow I can bend...

Okay hopefully this is the last change prior to the BIG change!
They want me at the hospital at 5:30am instead of a much more reasonable 9:30am. WHO works at 5:30AM? ::::Shudder::::: I guess I won't get a lot of sleep anyway so I may as well. The hospital is quite near my home so less than 15 minutes from door to door I suspect. I have put off buying a laptop and now my sound at the office doesn't work oh and I got the dreaded BLUE screen on my home computer last night so who knows when I will have contact again. hahaha It will all work out is my mantra.

Another...uhmmm challenge

Okay so I go to the Hospital this morning for my required Pre-op (Pay the co pay and deductible for this year, blood tests and a half million questions oh and my durable power of atty). At the last of the questions area they asked me to confirm the procedure and guess what WRONG procedure listed! They have me down for a lap band and I'm having the gastric bypass. Grrrrr
Called the Dr.'s office... they claim they sent over the correct paperwork. You know this is why they do pre op a few days before... it's just another screw up... what if it had been a face lift instead? :)

Almost Ready for Prime Time

I have the two appointments I needed. One to the Imaging Center to have a sonogram on my lower legs ...looking for blood clots that could be a problem with surgery and one at the Hospital for my pre op. Whoo hoo! Then I am ready for the big event. I feel calm and excited and apprehensive. Just what I need to feel :)
