You Are The Best , Thank You!!!

I am sitting here in my office , just hours away from going to the hospital for my right knee replacement.
I have arranged my house, everything in order.
I took my van to the car wash, I vacuumed it myself, then ran it through the wash. it looks so nice and clean. I am kind of bad about getting it washed. I usually let the rain do it for me. Smile!!
And this is the first time in years that I could crawl around and vacuum the interior.
I have sprayed Fabreeze in the car and the house. A fresh spring scent.
Tonight I had dinner with a group of women. We meet once a months. We have all at one time worked for the same company.
I am eating light due to surgery, so only ate a bowl of clam chowder. I had one small piece of the delicious sour dough bread. I didn't drink , only had water.
I looked at the pretty mixed drinks, but I was driving, so even without the up coming surgery, I would not have drank.
I am sitting here waiting for my son in law to come and pick up work orders and get all the instructions on what's what , so he can handle things while I am gone.
The house is very quiet with Titan gone.
When I left him at the doggie hotel, the girls there were cuddling him , and he was lapping it up. But I suppose he will miss me. I am taking a picture of him with me. Yeah, I'm a little crazy, I love the little guy , he's the joy of my life.
I had hoped to get back to everyone who sent me best wishes for a speedy recovery and had commented on my blog, but I have run out of time. I really need to get some sleep.
Last night I did not sleep very well. I think tonight will be different. I have got everything done and I feel relieved that I accomplished so much.
I am a little nervous, but that's to be expected.
After the over talkative lady at the gym telling me about her knee replacement, I'm glad I'm only a little nervous.
A lady at the gym showed me her knee scar and said the surgery was easy, but when she started physical therapy , the pain was so bad she just screamed. And each time it got worse. She was laid up for about 3 months.
I just stared at her, who tells a person who is about to go through knee replacement that
they hurt so bad they were screaming??? I told her that's too bad, but I think I will handle it fine. My friend, Pam, was taking a shower and hollered out when the lady left, "I'm sure that's just what you wanted to hear." Some people can be so insensitive.
I have heard more positive things from other women than this one bad example.
I tried on my red high heels, really wanted to ware them tonight, but I just couldn't take more than 5 steps, knees just won't hold up. But just wait, everyone knows as soon as I can I am going dancing in my red high heels. Or at least strut my stuff in skinny jeans and red high heels. If any of you remember ZZ Top, and "The girls got legs".. That will be me. Smile!
Dear friends, thank you so much for all the good wishes, the encouraging words and
continued support .
I packed my lap top, hope to be able to blog from my hospital room.
It's almost 10:30 and I really need to get to sleep.
Take care, stay positive and believe in yourself.
Peace and love,
