Tomorrow is the day!!! I cant tell you how nervous I cam now that they day is here.  I am also excited about the possibility of my chronic pain being "gone" or at least bearable. I will try very hard to keep a positive attitude after the surgery. Like  my surgeon said to me  I will be trading everyday pain for surgical pain that in time will pass. That I can not wait for.  Thanks for checking in on  me screaming eagle, I will definitely let you know what you should prepare for. It is so nice to belong to a community that understands .  
I gotta tell you, my house has never been so clean, e even cleaned the fireplace bricks with a toothbrush. hahaha. Talk about nervous energy!!!! 
Talk to you all very soon, My husband moved the computer to a place that I will be more comfortable at after surgery. I have a great guy.

I will be wishing with all my heart that your surgery is a great success story! I know it's nerve-wracking waiting for the time to come, but it's almost here and then the surgery will be over and you can start on the road to recovery.

I keep thinking of big, gorgeous hydrangeas whenever I read your name - the deep blue color are my favorite. So I'm sending you back an image of a healing blue one to visualize in your mind!
