Saturday before surgery

Today I was planning on going to Taos to the Fiber Festival. I had so been looking forward to it. But Thursday night my throat got sore. I have gargled, had hot tea, taken tylenol and throat lozenges. I felt better most of Friday and today I finally almost feel 100%. BUT I canceled my plans for today as I do NOT want to miss surgery on Monday. I'm tired of waiting.

Today I'm typing up instructions for Willie while we are gone. I'm making Jello Jigglers since my food tomorrow is all clear liquids. The bowel prep sounds absolutely wonderful (ha ha). We are leaving early tomorrow to get to our motel so I can safely survive the bowel prep without an accident on the way up. I had planned on staying with friends -------- but they are sick with a bad cold & I will not take a chance on getting sick after surgery. Luckily the Dr. office sent me a list of possible motels. I found one that had wonderful "medical rates" & we will go there. Best Western South West.

Oh by the way, Windex works exceptionally well to get wedding rings off. They said that it would be cut off if I didn't get it off. It works.

Continue to keep me in your prayers. I'm hoping to be back home by Tuesday evening or Wednesday morning at the latest. I will update when I can. Biopsy results and the follow up plans will not be known until probably Wednesday or Thursday. They say my cell phone might work in the hospital, we'll see.

Everyone have a great weekend.

Hello Wanda, I hope everything will go well tomorrow and that you have a speedy recovery. Windex works for a lot of stuff, like spots on the carpoet and so on. I found ¼ of origional Dawn and ¾ white vinigar does wonders on your tiles and bath venyties. Just spray it on, let is set for about 45 minutes and rinse. It also cleans surfaces very well around the house especially in the kitchen.
Good luck tomorrw! Ladies and some gentelmen from my church, we formed a prayer circle and we pray for you and your family.
