Almost ready for tomorrow

Thursday, May 21, 2009

I am as ready as I will get for tomorrow.All pre op has been done and saw doc who will do procedure.I will have to stay overnight as he keeps all his patients overnight so he can give them antibiotic and watch them for at least 1 night.
We did get a good laugh at his office thanks to me. For the last 2 weeks I have been hearing this ringing like noise at a little after 10 every morning. Like a fork lift makes when it backs up.I have searched and search and could not found out where it was coming from. Dumb dumb It was coming from my chest and I didn't realize it.It is a warning to let person know battery is getting low. But every time I heard it the sound seemed to come from another room. I felt a little stupid but just laughed as it was funny.The doc just laughed about it. I had been shown what it would sound like more than once but I just didn't realize that was what I was hearing.
I am taking my lap top since I have to stay over night so I may drop a quick post.
The hospital is a very good one and the care is A1.

I'm glad your going to be getting great care at a great hospital!! I'll be thinking and praying for you. I wish I could be there... Is the food somewhat decent?? I HATE the hospital food at the hospital I go to. The broth even tastes nasty!!!

    That is so funny - the noise was coming from you!! I'm glad you have confidence in the doctor and the hospital. Makes an anxiety-causing situation a little easier to handle. I'm holding you and the medical team in prayer.

Well it is only 2 days til my procedure. It is on my mind a lot. I am not even trying to stay on my program.If I gain I will work to lose it but I am not in the mood to stress over what to eat when to eat how much to eat etc etc etc.
We will be in Tampa for most of the day tomorrow getting everything set up and then procedure at noon on Friday. Needless to say I will be glad when it is over with. I hope this one last longer. I just checked and I have only had this one about 4 1/2 years.They are suppose to last 5 to 7 years. Oh well.
Now to top it off I have been getting sharp pains in my right groin muscle when I move a certain way.Soon I will have no pain free areas. Some days are just not so good.But they beat having no days.
Well it wouldn't be my blog without a picture. Here is my coneflower getting bigger and my cactus with some little blooms

Rainy Tuesday

Tuesday, May 19, 2009

It is a rainy dreary day.Not storming just dark and cloudy.We have needed rain so bad so it is good to have it.But I do miss looking at my window at a nice sunny day.
My eating control has been non existing but am going to do better starting today. It is only3 more days til my procedure.I am stress somewhat about it.Not the procedure itself but just having to be in hospital for any length of time.The hospital I am going to is a very good hospital but it is me.I have so many other issues that concern me.The knee pain,the arms falling asleep when laying down,the bladder that I sometimes have no control of. Mainly things that have a potential to be embarrassing.But the last time I was in that hospital the care was fantastic.Nothing like the crappy care at our local hospital. Good thing is it will soon be over with and my hubby will be by my side the whole time.If I have to stay overnight he will even stay if I ask.
My container garden is doing great. I have several small tomatoes and it looks like some yellow peppers are starting to form.Everything has blooms. I need to thin out my little lettuce patch. I might even put some of it in my new pot.I don't have anything to go into the pot for now so I may just play with it. I could even put some of the herb plants in it. Here are 3 small tomatoes on bottom of plant.I need to go cut off those bad leaves. Here are two more hiding at top of same plant Cut bad leaves off.
All my chimes are singing today.I have some in front and 2 in back.The new one in back sounds nice. When I gave up my bird feeders I replaced them with wind chimes. I wanted to but 2 the other day but I figured Bill might not be so agreeable.
Ok O guess that is about it.Need to go to my teams etc.

    I'll be thinking about you on Friday!! I don't like staying at the hospital either but it's what we must do from time to time. I know you'll be in good hands, especially with Bill there.

Fresh tomatoes are the best right out of the garden. One of these years I'll be adventurous to try it!

    The patio tomatoes look great. Won't be long til they are in a salad.
I will be thinking of you as you go to the hospital - praying that you are strong, the proceedure goes well, and you are back home before the neighbors know you are gone.

Huggers, Sunny

New visitor to front yard

Tuesday, May 19, 2009

I had a little excitement for me yesterday. I was sitting in living room and I heard a new sound outside. I am not an expert bird person but I had several bird feeders for a long time and I listen to birds outside all the time. So I knew something was different. Altho I was still in nightgown my curiosity got the best of me so I went outside the front door and couldn't see big tree well enough so I said to heck with it and stepped off front entrance so I could see better.Which also meant it could see me. I could hear it calling to another one but couldn't spot it at first.But when I did I was so excited I hurried back into house to get camera which was on other side of house. I am hurrying as much as I can hurry and muttering to myself the whole way.Don't fly away over and over. It didn't at first and when it did it was just across the street. I didn't even notice the other one until the first one flew down to side walk. I do not think they were wild. The passing vehicles didn't bother them.In fact a fire truck came by and I thought for sure it ran over one as it was so close to road. Ok here is what I was excited about.

We do have a lot of wild parrots here but this is not one of them.I use to get wild ones on my feeders once an awhile.These are smaller and have much more bright color on them. I wish I could have caught these as they acted very tame. I am sure that in some neighbors house they were talking about the crazy old lady outside her house with a camera in her night gown. Reminds me of the book."When I grow old I will wear purple"

    WOW... that bird is beautiful. I don't do well with photos of birds. THey are always way to far away from me to snap a shot. COULD BE because I usually have a kitty following me while in the garden. (grin)

Happy Garden Dear Team member!

Rainy Day Finally

Monday, May 18, 2009

We have finally gotten some rain. And it is a good soft rain that is going into the dry ground instead of washing yards away.We are suppose to have rain all week. We need it and it will be good for everything. It isn't storming. Just dark dreary and raining.
I did not have a great night last night so I may go back to bed again soon. Since I have no schedule I can lay down when ever I want. I couldn't get to sleep because of knee pain and then lucky me I had diarrhea hit me big time. After 2 showers I was finally able to go back to bed around 4 am. So I am dragging right now.
I will be glad when the procedure on Friday is over with. I will be in Tampa for most of the day on Thursday getting stuff set up at hospital and seeing doc.Bill will be with me and that will make it easier to get around.
Ok My eating sucks and exercise is haphazard but I am not giving up.

I am going to turn off the phones and go back to bed. emoticon
