Well, the day is almost upon us
Rick's ablation is tomorrow. We started the whole procedure way back in Nov. of last year and the day is almost here. Rick has slept terrible, his nerves are on edge. He is so nervous I am nervous. I know he is in good hands and I know he will be fine but his dread is infectious. I can't wait until tomorrow is over.
I was petting Zoey and found 2 more lumps. Sheesh, I swear they hadn't been there the day before. These 2 new ones feel like cysts though but I sure wish she would stop getting them. Plus she keeps licking her incisions on her legs and they are getting red looking. I spend all day telling her to stop it. I am not looking forward to taking her to the vet todays. She justs hates it and being left is going to really depress her. Last time sweety.
I got last night off for low census. What a blessing. I won't be so tired today when we go to Omaha and my back didn't get another workout.
I had to go back on FMLA for my back. It has been acting up so much again lately I wanted to make sure my job was safe. I have only missed one day because of my back, but with more disc's bulging I want to protect my job. I am going to have to get another MRI soon to see how bad it has became. I just am not sure I want to know. Ya know!
The weather is just wonderful outside. Should be a beautiful day for traveling. I am not sure when we will be leaving. Rick is talking morbid about how he didn't make a will and he should have canceled until after his mother was gone so she wouldn't have to go through the loss of her son in her final days, did I mention he was nervous and morbid! I have had so many surgeries I guess I just have learned to put my trust in the doctors. This is the first thing Rick has ever had done. I told him if he died in surgery I would kill him so he had just better behave and start putting out some good vibes.
MIL is doing OK. She is home of course having refused Respite care. I am just not going to think about for the next couple of days. Stubborn woman and I know hospice is going to check on her more. Rick has been spending the days there.
Well, I guess I had better get busy. Notice the day just seems to fly when you have lots to do and you don't seem to have enough time to get it all done. Thanks to everyone for all your well wishes. I am holding your prayers close to my heart for warmth and comfort so I can block out Rick's fears.
I love the picture of the bird I took last year. He looks like he hasn't a care in world which I didn't have either when I took it. I was on my bike, the day was beautiful, and life was good. I find this picture represents that for me and I am looking forward to perfect days like that to come.
Last night we watched the movies Long Way Round about 2 motorcyclist who drove around the world. The one thing they kept saying which those of us who journal know. The world around people all want the same things. A roof over our heads, food to feed our children and warmth at night. Everyone was so friendly on their trips. If we got rid of all the politicians telling us all to hate each other, would we all get along world wide,.........probably. Heres a wave and a hello for all the world. I love you all.
