Tomorrow is my foot surgery. I'm not really nervous, I just want it over with. Once again my friend Dawn is coming to the rescue to take me to the surgical center and then home again.
I am so annoyed with the center. They called me at 8:30 this morning and went over everything I needed to know for tomorrow. They told me to be there at 10:15. I called Dawn and set the entire thing up.
At about noon they called to remind me to be there at 10:15 and that I had a co-pay and not to forget to bring it.
Around 1, they called me, laughing and said, "Oh, forget about 10:15 we just changed the surgery to 7:30 am. I was furious. I spent time figuring out the day, asking favors of friends and they just think it's funny?
I just wish people would walk a mile in my shoes before they think things are easy for everyone.
Well, wish me luck. Tomorrow I get my foot fixed! Hooray!

I went for my pre-op tests today. Sheesh! You would think I was going to have a heart transplant and not bunion surgery. They had all kinds of tests including blood, urine, EKG etc....
Ok, apparently, I am well enough for them to operate on my little toe. I can't imagine what they would put me through if this were something truly serious!!
On a side note, I received the thumb brace with magnets I ordered. I have heard a lot about magnets helping with arthritis so, I thought I'd try it. I'll keep everyone posted on how it works (or if it works).

My daughter arrived home from college yesterday. She will be here about a week before she goes to spend a day or two with her dad. Her dad will take her to the airport on Sunday and she is off to Israel for 10 days.
My son is also home this weekend (spends a couple of weekends a month with his dad).
It is the best feeling in the world to have both kids under one roof. This afternoon my daughter and I will do some shopping. She needs shoes (hahahahaha) but I love to go out with her. When we get back I am taking my son over to the animal shelter to do some volunteer work. He loves to run the dogs and they love it too!
I am smiling. It's going to be a great day!
