...and the countdown begins. I got the news today that my surgery has finally been approved. Wow. May 1 I'm finally getting the plumbing taken out.
I can't say that I'm TOTALLY thrilled about it, but knowing I can't have kids and have been living in so much pain for so long it's kind of a relief. I guess all these mixed emotions are pretty normal. LOL I'm sure there will be more, if I don't take the hormone meds they give me. HA!
My apartment complex is working with me to start getting me into my new place around the middle of this month, so I won't have to be stressing right before surgery. Some of the guys at work said they'd help me move the big stuff, too. Even MORE excitement! There are boxes EVERYWHERE (which is driving me crazy~I hate clutter), and every chance I get I pack a few things here and there. I even know where I'm going now, and know the layout of the place, so that makes packing a little easier. I may not be completely UNpacked by the time I'm in recuperation mode, but at least everything will be there and once I'm up and about I can do a little at a time till the doc releases me to get back to work.
Am I happy? Yeah. Am I freaking out a little bit? OH YEAH. Am I freaking out a LOT? Eh...I don't think it's completely sunk in just yet. At least I have things to keep me busy for now.
Everything happens for a reason. The other day, one of my dearest friends gave me a book by Alexandra Stoddard entitled, "Choosing Happiness." I'm only about 15 pages into it, but it's already giving me a different outlook on life. It really is a great inspirational book. AND, "The Karate Kid" came on cable tonight. Wax on, wax off. I don't know what it is, but I just LOVE this movie!
I DO have to say, though, I liked Ralph Macchio more in "Crossroads" ~~ the 1986 movie, NOT the cheese/sleeze Brittany Spears movie from 2002. Rent the older one; the music in it ALONE is worth the $3.95!
Hope everyone has a happy Hump Day!
