I have never noticed the surf b4! LOL
I have an idea
I'm going to try
and use all the emoticons in this message
This is fun
I totally detailed my house the week b4 surgery
Cleaning helps me keep my mind off other things.
Plus don't do what I did
and hurt yourself by doing too much when you get home
(Although I did have unplanned stays at the hospital
and unplanned houseguests while I was at the hospital
They tried to keep things cleaned up, but I have a bit of OCD
(Like you couldn't tell
) and they didn't hang the clothes the right way in the closet.....
We are Noggin o' holics here! Elliott loves that channel.
HEY Robin! I wanted to tell you what I had for dinner last night! Bar B Q!!
I haven't been able to eat that in YEARS! It would've sent me strait to the ER with pain and bleeding.
And I didn't feel a thing. Then, we stopped and got ice cream (B & J's cake batter) He He He!!
So good. Then today I ate spicy chicken wings
(have I used that one yet?) Another ER visit pre-surgery.
B4 my surgery, soneone told me to visualize all the pizza and chocolate shakes I was going to get to eat
That visualization helped me so much! I was on such a bland diet b4 to control my u/c that I'm LIVING IT UP!
and you will too.
(I know I used that one already, but it seemed appropriate).
Why are there 3 smiles? They ran out of ideas?
I THINK I did it....Whew.
P.S.-I still have a hard time thinking that I will actually be healthy again. I'm very used to disappointment too, b/c when you expect medicine to work and it doesn't (over and over again) you get used to failure and then expect it. I'm still in recovery, so I don't feel 100 % yet, and I still have some meds to take, but soon I hope to be off everything........THAT'S THE POINT
