Today There is Calm

Today is a new day and I'm feeling much better. I'm off today and the first thing I had to do was see my Doctor and it is official and I'm cleared for surgery in six days. The waiting thing has been the worse ever! But I'm calm now and as strange as it may sound almost excited. I am ready to get on with my life. I am ready to feel better and so all that is a positive thing.

Yesterday I lost my focus and my positivity. I hope I don't do that again. I have to meet with the anesthesiologist on Monday before my surgery on Tuesday and that's it.

My Doctor thinks I'll be able to go back to work in 4 weeks but she cleared me for 6 weeks just in case and I've got short-termed disability and if that is approved I will probably take the full 6 weeks off.

And then, if everything works out and I do okay, I am doing some major changes in my life as far as where I am living. But we'll talk about that later. For now I am concentrating on getting through this adventure in my life and on healing.

I've tried not to talk about my health problems too much on this blog but it is such a major part of my life at this moment, that is all I am thinking about. So, that's what it'll be probably for the next little while.

Anyway, I'm hoping you are having a good day and that there is lots of Sunshine wherever you are.

Love,
Robbin

I sure wish I could be there with you. Please know I will be in thought and will ask Amy to let me know how you are until you are able to blog again after surgery.

Oh, thanks Chellie, I wish you could be here too. We'll make sure Amy has your email so she can keep you posted. Hope your day is going good.

I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers for your upcoming surgery.

Keep your chin up, get well, and move forward with your life.

Oh thank you Shirley. I will take all of that advice for sure.

I'll be thinking of you too, Robbin. If you email me (using the link on my blog) with your real life address, I'll send you a little "cheer up" note while you're recooperating. Stock up on a few things to pamper yourself if you can (movies, books, magazines, favorite beverages, etc.)

hugs, Aisling

I'm glad you've found some calm . . . now we just need to maintain that! Just think - you are going to feel so much better before you know itnb vbnmfgjb (Thank your son for all that nonsense, he just ran his fingers across the keyboard. I told him I was telling. He whined.)

I understand his nonsence, it was a secret message. Tell him I got it.
Actually I go from being calm to be excited to being scared out of my mind and then I start all over again.
And I still got five days to go. I have to work tomorrow and Saturday and that is a good thing.
I think. They are so sick of me at work they probably wish I were gone already.
