We're now Friday night, and I haven't blogged as much as usual lately... I've been pretty wrapped up with myself and have trouble sleeping well because of my upcoming surgery.
I had a pretty quiet week, stayed in mostly and tried to plan things for next week. I need everything to be in order by Monday since I'll be in the Hospital all day Tuesday and will come home the nest day. Also, my boyfriend won't be able to run errands much since he'll be my full time nurse for the week following surgery...
I'm pretty angry that worker's compensation still have not made a decision whether my surgery will be covered! It will bring about many expenses and I find it so ridiculous that they take months to make a very simple decision. I had all the information sent to them a month and a half ago!!
I really hope to have some news by Monday... It just adds to my worries. And truthfully, worker's comp has been the biggest thorn in my life since my injury, aside from the pain. They bring my stress level up tremendously and my morale down...
Well my Mom's coming by at noon tomorrow (Saturday) and we'll go pick up some groceries and run some errands all afternoon. I need to finish my list tonight before I head to bed. I need to fins a few simple recipes for my boyfriend to cook for the week and make sure we're well stocked up for at least a week.
I'm trying to focus on the future and to remain positive and optimistic. It's natural to worry and to be afraid, but I could gain a lot from this surgery and be on my way to a healthy and active life again.
I wish all of my Spark friends a great week-end. Some of you are up and others down, but we're all moving towards goals, and hopefully all remaining Optimistic.
