I don't know about the world being "mud-licious" or "puddle-wonderful", but today it is going to be pretty wet and muddy from the rain coming in before all the snow. We had to go in to the doctor's clinic this morning so I could get a last-minute blood test (BMP) and an EKG, and while we were downtown, I noticed that there is a lot of snirt around. For you folks who don't know what that is, it's that dirty, nasty brown snow consisting of snow AND dirt. Hey, the rain will probably wash away all the snirt, and then the new snow will cover everything in a nice clean coat. Something to look forward to!
And for all of you who are pretty much fed up with winter, give a shout out and make yourself heard. Not that's there anything we can do about it, but it may make you feel better.
I am getting a tad bit nervous about the surgery, since there seems to be so many tests being done and appointments to go to. It makes it a little bit more complicated than I had imagined. My contact nurse called yesterday and asked that we arrive at 5:45 AM instead of 6 o'clock, so they could do a few things even earlier. Oy vey. Maybe I should just plan to get there around midnight, and slump over in a chair and sleep. Then, if they need to poke or jab or hook something up, I'd be there, but unconscious. I found out that the plastic surgeon is supplying me with camisoles and special bras. Yay! new lingerie - right? Wrong. I'm sure they are the heavy-duty, supportive, commercial-grade undies - definitely not the kind from Victoria's Secret.
By the way, the tech who did my EKG this morning, happened to mention that they are getting sooo many breast cancer patients in lately and that many of them are quite young. That is very depressing to hear. I hope all of you out there are making sure you're getting mammograms each year. I realize now that this can happen to anyone. It's weird to be going about your everyday life, and then, BAM!, it occurs to you that this is not a dream. IT IS REALLY HAPPENING AND THERE'S NOTHING YOU CAN DO BUT KEEP GOING FORWARD TO TAKE CARE OF THE PROBLEM.
Yup, it's a real snirty kind of situation, wouldn't you say? :)
NOTE: Thank you, Jenna, for the wonderful lasagna. You did good!
GOD BLESS YOU ALL
