A Really Good Monday

2 Mar

Hi All,

Just checking in. I had a great day today. I got so much done (yeah) πŸ™‚

I had a lot to do today (or this week actually, but ended up getting quite a bit of it done today). I felt really energized and motivated.

I have been really starting to feel a lot of pressure with surgery coming up this month – knowing that I have a lot to do before surgery. So I spent some time Sunday figuring out what I needed to do and made my list and started tackling it today. I had a bunch of medical stuff to arrange (pre-op tests, making sure the right tests are ordered, getting these authorized by my insurance, scheduling appointments – physical therapy sessions, just routine things). Anyway, it all went really well and I was able to check off a lot off of my list.

I also found out that my surgeon postponed my surgery by one week. So, instead of having surgery on March 22nd, it is now scheduled for March 29th. I am so very pleased. I had been feeling really pressured about it being so soon. But, at the same time, I want to get it over with and move on. I expressed this to my surgeon in our last meeting. But, she didn’t seem to be too sympathetic. I told her that I wanted more time so that I could become physically stronger. Anyway, I called her office today to schedule our pre-op and found out that she had pushed my surgery date out a week because she knew that I had wanted more time. Pretty nice – although, I am not sure when she was planning on letting me know about the change in date πŸ™‚

But, I am not complaining. The 29th is good. It gives me more time to improve my physical strength, more time to prepare my home for after my surgery and just more time to mentally prepare. I am looking forward to it on some levels, but mostly just looking forward to having it behind me. πŸ™‚

Anyway, I am just delighted that she made it for a week later. Such good news. I now really feel like I have time to get everything done. Plus, I really need to have time to have some more fun. It has been such a blessing to finally feel as though I am recovered from the radiation and to be physically up to more than before. Last week I played the bass (on stage) for the first time since last summer. I was pretty darn sore the next day. But, now I feel fine from that. And, I may play again this weekend. I am not sure yet. We’ll see how it goes.

It is funny how much of a difference a week makes, at least mentally.

So tomorrow is another full day in Newport. A couple of appointments one in the morning and one at the end of the day (physical therapy being one of them – I can’t wait to get back under Dana’s hands – she is helping me make SO much progress) and I will be working on a project in between. So it will be a nice drive down PCH tomorrow morning and then a full day.

Well, I should be asleep right now, so I will call it a night.

Please continue to keep me in your prayers.

Love and Peace,
