35 Days until Surgery

I am guessing it is common to get jitters when the time gets closer. It seemed so far away until 2009 actually got here! I'm worried that January 26th at PATs, that they might find something wrong that needs to be corrected before surgery and my surgery will be postponed....hopefully not cancelled. Truly, if there is something wrong, I want them to find out about it then and NOT when I am on the table on Feb. 11!!!!!

I've made reservations at the MicroTel Inn in Ann Arbor, about 15 minutes from the hospital both for the night before PATs and the night before surgery, the night of surgery (well, not for me...) and the night after surgery!

I'm wearing my ankle brace now and that helps my ankle pain immensely. Tomorrow, I will go to my foot doctor per urgent care today. He insists I do have gout also because of my uric acid level being so high at 6.9.

I rejoined Weight Watchers yesterday to help control my mutiple feedings of "The Last Supper." So far, I have not been able to get into that program though. It was probably not the best idea but I did and signed up for and paid for six weeks. Last night, Bob thought I had gone out of my mind! Oh well.......................hopefully, I will get on that program and lose some of the Last Supper weight I have gained since my initial consult in September!

  1. My prayers are with you as you get ready for the surgery. Starting on WW now is a good idea to keep from gaining any more weight prior to surgery and maybe losing a few pounds. I am sorry to hear that you are still having gout problems.

    Good luck...looking forward to vacationing with you again...we'll be slimmer beauties by then...
