Today was a good day. Although the pain kept coming and going throughout the day, I’ve learned to deal with it as it is no where near as bad as it has been. My mom and brother came to visit today and take me out to lunch. Since my pain has not been very bad and knowing that I will soon not be able to eat much, I’ve been trying to eat tasty things. I even had pizza last night, but it really hurt to eat it. We went to BJ’s restaurant, I had soup and salad and we had some great conversation. I don’t see either of them very much so I really enjoyed their visit.
Soon after that it was time to celebrate Sam’s birthday. It’s not her birthday today but we are celebrating it because her birthday is on Thursday, the day of my surgery. I felt bad that my surgery was scheduled on her birthday, but it worked out well because there is a concert on her birthday that she wanted to go to and probably wouldn’t have been home anyway. The picture is of Sam and her boyfriend Andrew. We went to Panera Bread, where I had, you guessed it, soup (and mac n cheese). Afterward, home for opening presents and having not cake, but brownies (Sam’s fav).
I am so blessed to have such a wonderful family. I love spending time with them, even if it is just to watch them goof around on the computer making “future” baby pictures by morphing themselves with their boyfriends or girlfriends (like they are doing right now). So, now it is time to spend a little time with Lynnanne and watch one of our taped shows. I enjoy that time and it keeps my mind occupied.
T-minus one day.
