trying to climb back up the slide

Thursday, July 01, 2010

when my brother was little, my grandparents and cousins all went on a summer vacation to the smokeys...my brother wasnt the best swimmer and was less than happy about being in the water, but seeing all the other kids having a blast sliding down the slide, decided to give it a go....
little did he realize how deep the water was on that end and so once he got close to the end of the slide, he grabbed hold of the sides and held on and started trying to climb back up, but others were sliding and he had to give in and just go into the deep end...
i guess that is the way i have felt the last few days, about this knee surgery tomorrow.
like, i am hanging on, and cant decide if i should just let go, or hold on.
i know i need the surgery and everyone says its ok, its no biggie, its a simple procedure and the doctor acts like hes just spreading butter on a roll...something u do without much fanfare or thought.
by around 10 am tomorrow i should be on the operating table, and dread just continues to build inside.
its about the stupiest things, like, hating to be naked under the gown, my sister works in the surgical recovery and she told me to just keep my underwear on if i want to, she said alot of ppl do.
and its stuff like, my back hurting from laying for so long in one position.
the dryness of my mouth from the gas.
i guess i am just putting up roadblocks.
but anyway, just nerves, hopefully they give me some kickass drugs and i wont even know what i was so worried about..."way to go tube and baggie"...frank barone....
will update as soon as i am able to get back in front of the pc.
hope u all have a good weekend and a great 4th of july....will be watching the hot dog eating contest on tv and i better not see any of you there hahaha

    We all get scared, but realize that you will be better after wards and yes you can/wll get drugs to calm you down. I asked my nurse when I got to the hospital if I could have something to calm me down and they did. It just takes the edge off. It gets scary for us adults too! The nurses and Dr. are there to help you, so ask questions and ask for help. It makes it really easier. Rest like you are suppose to and get better soon!

only 2 days

Wednesday, June 30, 2010

well the day is drawing closer for my knee surgery, i wasnt at all nervous until yesterday, i heard this song..."keep me in your heart for awhile"...warren zevon, and i was like, omg, i need to prepare myself if something would go wrong...
but in my heart im not overly concerned, i just hate being on the table, i hate the way they put u on a gurney then tell u to slide over onto the table, maybe that wont happen this time, i am always afraid im gonna slide between the two tables and fall in the floor, haha...
well, anyway, bill fixed the porch steps for me to make it easier for me to get up, and i have been trying to get all my housework taken care of so i dont have anything to do when i get home.
tonight i am babysitting my 5 year old nephew who is a handful and a half, if i can run after him, i should be just fine.
good luck to all and hope u all have a great 4th of july, i am going to look for some fireworks tomorrow, if nothing else, i will sit on the front porch and shoot them off for myself.
god bless america

finishing up early

Tuesday, June 29, 2010

wanted to post my blog now and get off line, i have things to do around here, my surgery is on friday and i am planning on writing some stuff down tonight and finishing my houswork, i know this is a simple arthroscopic procedure, but i am feeling apprehensive and so, i have decided to write out some things my son should know, u know, just in case something was to go wrong.
not that it will, but i wanted him to know where certain papers are and moneys and things like that...
hopefully i will be home resting on the couch this time friday evening and hopefully not in to much pain...
its been a nice day here today, cooler, i thought about going shopping but no, i just didnt really feel like the effort of getting out today.
maybe tomorrow evening, if its not too hot.
well, everyone have a nice evening and try to stick on point

long and winding road...to lowes

Sunday, June 27, 2010

today i went to lowes, i rode around on the little jazzy or whatever those things are called, due to my bum leg, and i picked out a new washer, went up and paid and went around back and the guys loaded it up in the truck....all was well, went and got dog food and started for home, got about 8 miles from home and stopped at the grocery for milk...my sister in law comes over to the truck and says hey i see u bought a new dryer, im like, uh no dum dum we bought a new washer, and shes like, uh, no dum dum, u bought a dryer, sure enuff the dum dums at lowes had loaded our truck up with a dryer and we were to dumb to notice....
so 20 miles back to lowes and got that taken care of and 20 miles back...
what a long day it was of doing nothing but sitting in the truck riding....
but its in now and hopefully i wont have to go back to lowes for awhile....
and im tired and getting ready for bed....

  


salsa is good and other random thoughts

Thursday, June 24, 2010

who likes salsa?
today i tried it for the first time on a baked potato, and i liked it...
well anyway...yesterday was not so good for me calorie wise, hoping tonight i can stay on track, i have finished my food for the day and might have a cup of milk or yogurt later, but i hope that is all....
they say it will begin to cool down here, we had more rain this evening, started looking like a big storm was brewing but it passed pretty quickly.
i am listening to elvis on myspace....
just some random thoughts
