Shopping and Preparing
Last night, I went grocery shopping. Except for forgetting honey, I think I did a good job of stocking up for the time when I expect to be laid up.

I bought only "easy" foods, nothing that would be at all complicated to prepare. I also got lots to drink, and some "pampering" treats. My cart must have looked pretty funny...here is what I bought:

many boxes of Lean Cuisines (the Leaning Tower Of Lean Cuisine!)
3 boxes of Lean Pockets
2 boxes frozen veggies
some other random frozen stuff
12 bottles of Propel Fitness Water
12 cans of caffeine-free diet coke
12 cans of diet vanilla pepsi
1 bag fritos, 1 bag cheetos
3 kinds of ice cream bars
break-and-bake cookie dough

Sounds yummy, huh? My freezer is now fully stocked. My fridge has tons of beverages, a jar of pickles, cheese, applesauce, and an orange.

I think I'm ready! Y2K, do your worst. Oh wait, it's not Y2K anymore. Doctors, do your worst! (Actually no, please, don't.) But I'm well-stocked for spending a couple of hassle-free weeks at home.

Also, I put the bed which used to be in the basement into the main floor spare room, so now I don't have to worry about going up and down stairs at night. (My only bathroom is on the main floor.)

It'll be an adventure. I'm not scared.... (Well maybe I am a little.) But it'll be just fine. And eventually, I will be all put back together again, uninjured, and able to pursue the activities I love. That's a good thing.

Gee, a lot like my usual shopping cart, except I go for the diet Dr Pepper from just up the road in Waco. Good luck with the surgery.

Wow. You would make a great companion in a fall-out shelter or something. Do you take bookings?

Anyway, good luck with all the stuff. I'm sure everything's going to be OK.

Good luck tomorrow! And remember, every scrub-clad, pen-wielding human you encounter should be regaled with your concerns about nausea and pain management. The more, the merrier.

will u be asleep during it?

i had surgery on my mouth a few months ago and i wasn't asleep- the experience was really cool because u could feel the tool's presence and stuff but it didnt hurt it was awesome.

I think I'll be asleep for it, or at least "mostly" asleep. I guess I'll find out fairly soon.

I don't know, feeling all those tools in my mouth seems kinda creepy!

I'm praying for you--surgery is scary, but you'll do fine. Plus, you have lots of yummy food to eat afterwords! Mmm...

Let me know if you need me to bring over my DVD collection and my library of science fiction books...

If you want I can also bring over my comic book collection, but it's huge.... I mean really huge... and I don't think that I love you that much.

*get well soon*

*I hope that you can hobble to the door to let in the Elvis Impersonator Singing Telegram, that I am sending*
