The Hernia

I have to admit I have been feeling sorry for myself.
I have to have an incisional hernia repair next Wednesday,
Just when I was starting to feel pretty good, this happens.
I know. It's a simple procedure. It's not the end of the world.
It could be worse.
I am just not too keen on going under general anethesia again.

And, I worry about things:
How am I going to raise the garage door?
How am I going to get my laundry done?
How am I going to empty the cat litter box?
How am I going to keep the cat off my lap?
How am I going to get to hold my Addie and Dillie?
How am I going to do any shopping?
How am I going to assist patients to transfer to the toilet?
How am I going to hold the world on my shoulders?
OK...those last two I don't really have to do.
But, still. There is a lot of lifting that needs to be done.

On the bright side, maybe I can finally catch up with what's going on in Pine Valley.
And, "The View" is back from hiatus.

I must also be thankful my hernia is not this bad.

Wish I was there. But with my bum knee, I wouldnt be any help. Call me any time in the day if you get bored cause I'm just sitting home too. At least all the new season shows start and you will be able to watch them all and update everyone at work. Dont do anything crazy, all that stuff can wait. Just call for pizza and you wont need to go out. I will call you in a couple days. Love, your sis
