SOMETIMES LIFE JUST WALKS UP TO YOU, EXCUSES ITSELF, AND PUNCHES YOU IN THE FACE.
This quote might sound like I'm in a bitter mood, but no. I thought it was hilarious!
Actually, most of today was glorious. (The wagons are circling again). My friend from Atlanta, Sandy R., called this morning, and we had another one of our marathon chats. We got a lot of stuff talked over, and solved most of the world's problems in no time flat. Then I got to chit-chat with Jenna for a few minutes while she was on her break. Then I got to spend some time this afternoon with sis-in-law, Jill. Oh, I forgot to tell you that Nina called yesterday and asked if I would be interested in going with her to get pedicures on Monday - just for something fun to do. Unfortunately, it wouldn't do me much good, 'cause by Tuesday, I would have to have the polish removed for surgery.
That's something I've been thinking about. There are a few restrictions that must be taken into consideration when someone is preparing for surgery of any kind. Did you know that I will not be allowed to have any polish on my fingernails or toenails and I can't wear any hairspray, body lotion or deodorant? But here's the kicker - NO MAKE-UP!! I know I'm not going to a fashion parade, but if I show up without wearing make-up, I will look like that poor little dude, E.T., when he was terminally home-sick and scared and stretched out on a medical cot. Remember at the end of the movie when he just laid there, all naked and pale and pasty looking? In other words, I'm gonna look like an ALIEN! It doesn't help that I have that Power Port thingy embedded up by my shoulder blade, which looks and feels like an alien baby ready to break through the skin and be birthed. EWWW.
I talked to Sister Judy and she said she would like to be at the hospital Tuesday, but I told her that there's going to be a whole lot of nothing going on for quite a while and I'll let her know how things went. Seriously, I'm going to be knocked out, so I'm the one who is going to get through this the quickest. Thanks anyway, Jude.
In conclusion, take heed of these words. If "life" DOES walk up to you and just happens to say "excuse me" - -DUCK!
GOD BLESS YOU ALL
