I am all set for my Nissen on the 21st. My family will be celebrating Easter on Sat. So I can chill on Sunday and finish up last minute preparations. I think God will understand.
I posted on Grandma Barb's link that I have cleaned my house, done my laundry and gone grocery shopping. I live alone, so I plan to put everything out on the kitchen table that doesn't need refrigeration to avoid having to bend and stoop. I bought applesauce, jello and pudding cups, eggs, grape juice, prune juice, ice cream, Popsicles, broth, flavored waters, tea, cream of wheat, club crackers, vanilla wafers and liquid medicines. Anything I should add?
I am shopping tomorrow for anew robe to wear at the hospital ( senior discount day on Wednesday :)) I also suspended my gym membership and purchased a body blade for exercising here at home.
I am hoping they can do laparoscopic surgery, but I am a little worried. I have had three previous abdominal surgeries and the last one they attempted to do laparoscopically but couldn't because of adhesions and scar tissue. My surgeon thinks it should be ok because it is not the lower abdomen where he will be making his incisions.
I do not plan to have anyone come stay with me. My kids all work, and all my friends are younger so they too are working. I am like a Boy Scout all prepared, so I will be good to go. I would love to hear from any of the vets on here with anything I might have forgotten. One question when will I be able to drive? Thanks all, I have learned a lot on this site.
