Chatty Cathy

One of the most bizarre side effects of the many medications I’m on right now is that I’m apparently talking in my sleep. So much so that poor J awakes to full on conversations involving hand movements and even laughter. He said it’s mostly unintelligible, raspy, and hoarse but he makes out a few words …

Question…

Where do you keep your pajamas when they aren’t being used? Not the clean ones that are in the drawer. When you wake up in the morning and let’s assume you’ll put those same ones back on that night, what do you do with them? Apparently J and I are a little weird because over …

Sunshiny Day

Yesterday my sister Sara, bil Marc and nephew Jake came over to visit for the afternoon. It was such a welcome visit! I was dying for some socialization. Not being able to drive or talk on the phone will do that to you. So we hung out all afternoon, grilled out and watched The Transporter. …

Recovery

I’m alive! Everything went really well. We arrived at 6am, surgery was at 8. The IV didn’t hurt like I thought it would, and I have minimal bruising from it. It grossed J out though because he could see the fluid race through the tube and into me. And it caused my left arm to …

Good Friday

Yesterday was my last day at work until May 5th. It’s so strange to be out of work for 2 weeks but not be going on a trip or moving into a new house or something. Today I’m going to a scrapbook crop, sending out some Ebay sales, and going to my Mom’s for Hale’s …

Bedside Manner

My doctor reassured me that: a) I won’t wake up half way through my surgery unable to signal that I’m awake and feeling every slice of the scalpel (my #1 fear), and b) They will be able to go down my throat through my mouth and it’s not a possibility that they’d have to cut …

Pre-Op

Today I go see the Doctor for my pre-surgical assessment. I’m getting a little nervous about this whole tonsil removal situation. I’m even having weird dreams about it. The one I’ve had the most lately is where something goes horribly wrong during surgery and they have to slice open my throat to get to my …
