I am thirsty already and it is only 6:00 a.m. and wishing I could have coffee, too.
I still have to pack my bag and make sure I have all the things ready that I need to take with me to the hospital. My friend who is driving me will bring my purse , suitcase, laptop and cell phone tomorrow.
I get one sip of water this morning with a few meds and then totally n.p.o. Surgery is scheduled in about 8.5 hours. I was thinking of getting on the recumbent bike but I think I would get super thirsty if I did that. Perhaps if I get packed quickly (after sparking) I will take a slow walk around the block (about half mile).
Probably will spark to kill time until 11:15 when my friend is coming to pick me up after I am sure I have done all my errands and have my bag packed.
I think I have taken care of everything now...and am waiting for my friend to pick me up. She is supposed to come in about an hour. I am going to walk around the block unless it starts raining again. I think I lost my cell phone twice this morning and had to call the surgeon's office to verify my next appointment as I have lost the info packet they sent me.
My dental cleaning and exam yesterday went well. (Otherwise if there was an abscess or any infection the knee surgery would have to be postponed.)....
