Okay who stole the weekend? Here it is Sunday evening, and I’m like…there was a weekend?
Heads up: I have a serious question at the end of this blog. You can skip to that if you don’t want to hear the details of my weekend.
Friday, we had my final pre-op appointment, and all my tests are good so we’re ready to go. While discussing concerns, I brought up my reaction to General Anesthesia which is nausea. Wizard jumped in with, “She’s not overselling it, she gets sick. Really sick. And it doesn’t stop.” Umm…thanks for the help, Wizard??? LOLOL! But he’s not lying, and the doctor doesn’t want me sick (he said retching, UGH!), since we want the bones to fuse. So we talked about ways to minimize that, and we’re all set for Oct 30th. I’ll find out my time of the surgery the day before. Later that day, Wizard and I got our flu shots, then he began the “chase” for his phone. The new phone showed up–and it’s the wrong one. We don’t know if it’s an honest mistake or they are playing games. We’ll see, but I’m less happy about the customer service right now.
Saturday, I went to see BIL in the hospital, then he threw my sister out so we could go to lunch. He wanted her to have a break from the hospital, which is a good sign that’s he’s feeling well enough to worry about her. He’s going to be up and down now as he recovers, but he’s a fighter and determined to recover. By the way, my sister is handling all this like a rock star.
Sunday, I planned to have the day to catch up on some stuff and maybe write, but my day got better! Youngest called and invited me to go look at the wedding venue that his fiance is excited about. We went and looked, and they signed the contracts! I’m so happy about this, it’s for November 2019 so there’s lots of time for me to recover and still be a part of planning. Vet Tech Fiance and her mom are both made of Awesomeness and are making efforts to include me in the planning. I don’t have daughters, so this is pure fun for me! Our last son marrying Wizard is just as thrilled as I am.
And now my question: Do you think people would be interested to hear about my surgery journey? I can do video updates, but my videos will be amateur ones. Some will be me on pain pills They will definitely be all me–not feeling well, wearing a cervical collar, no make-up and natural weird hair. Or should I just keep it light with just blogs and posts when I can? Obviously, I’m not going to worry about it if I don’t feel well enough to talk on video. I’m still thinking about this and would love any input you have.
Okay that’s my weekend-plus-question. Now I want to hear how your weekend was!
