An interesting day

September 29, 2017 Friday

I woke up nice and rested again this morning and had a nice breakfast. Then I headed to the hospital to do my pre-surgery testing. I ended up filling out a bunch of paperwork, have two chest x-rays, giving blood, having an EKG and answering tons of questions about myself and my history. I’m supposed to report to the hospital Monday morning at 11 for surgery at 1 and plan on leaving about 4 or 5 that afternoon. Gonna be a long day. I also have to shower with anti-bacterial surgery soap for three showers before surgery on Saturday night, Sunday night and Monday morning – I’ve never heard of that before but if it prevents problems, I’ll be glad to do it.

After leaving the hospital, I went and did kitty duty again and got in more play time with the kitty. Cute kitty cat!!  Then I had lunch, at Brusters!!!!  Then I headed home. I cooked that turkey breast I had gotten earlier and it was really good. Leftovers will be good too, I bet.

After that I piddled around by cleaning up a little bit and figuring out my bills for the month. Since pay day is coming up, that was an important task to get done. Then I decided I’d go to Roswell for a couple days since I won’t be able to go next week. I had a nice drive along with millions of other drivers – at least it seemed like millions!!

I had some diarrhea today but not too much. Otherwise I felt quite good.  I kept thinking I’d do some sewing but I just never quite got around to it. Maybe next week sometime. Maybe.
