What causes insomnia!

                       

                                     I would

   Well for me apparently its going to the doctors to talk about maybe having surgery.   I didn't fall asleep until after 4 last night and here it is 7 and I am up getting ready to go.  

     Now that the pain has gone from a 10 to a 3 I am re-thinking this whole thing.  Maybe it wasn't that bad.......maybe I could just shine it off for another 10 years.  Who knows........ it might be 10 years before  I have another really bad attack and maybe by then I can just take a pill.   I just don't feel like getting operated on again.  It takes so much out of me these days and I don't bounce back like I did 10 years ago.   I always feel so bad for these elderly patients in their 80's that they operate on and send home the same day.  How scary would that be!  I suppose if they can do it I can do it.

    Gee, what with the whine so early in the morning.  Onward.

          

    It is cold here, cold. Time to turn our furnace on.  Now they say the snow should miss us, Oh Darn!   It is going to be down in the 20's tonight.  We are still planning on the fish tonight but the white chili sure sounds better.

   Last night we just slugged and watched a movie.  We looked all over for Smoke Signals which is a great movie and couldn't find it so we watched another old movie.  This is a pretty small house so how we could lose it I have no idea.  I keep my movies in one place, it must have gotten legs and taken off.  I hope we can find it today. 

   Otherwise not much going on.  Trying to decide when would be the best time to have this surgery unless he decides I don't need it.  Well, I have to finish getting ready.  Time marches on.  I can't believe it is 7:50, it is still dark out.   I hate this time of year.  I get off work in the dark and when I wake up sometimes we only have an hour left of light.  Who stole my sunshine!

    Well, me and the Beatles say bye bye for now.

Oh wow Julie!  Can't wait to hear what the Doc says.  And what you decide.
Hope you find your movie.  I hate that when things just "disappear."

Good luck at the Doctor today. I would hate for you to have to suffer through one of those attacts again like you just went through. I think from all you said it was as bad as you thought it was. Helen

I wish you only the best in whatever decision you make about the surgery.  And sometimes I wonder how things sprout wings and fly away?  I do have little ones around here though. lol  Have a great day Julie.  big hugs and GBU, Shelly

Julie, I know how you feel about surgeries.  I've had 7 abdominal surgeries since I was 3 years old.  I do not want any more!  My stomach looks like a road map as it is! lol

I hope things work out for you.  You will make the right decision when the times comes!

Sending you sunshine thoughts and feel better wishes!

Hugs
Jackie

OK..I'm weird....had 5 C-sections but as long as I had Percocet I was happy...I dont mind surgeries but if I dont have the best pain pills out there, I would hate it...besides it gave me a reason why I could lay in my bed without anyone else around...just the quiet;..I know no-one else feels that way...but if you do have it...make sure they give you Percocet...something strong..yes you'll be sleepy but after a week or so..you will feel rested.....Hope you find that movie...and hope the snow comes..
