I don't know about you but it is finally starting to sink in that Monday AM is almost here. Just think, a week from now how much better we are going to feel. I just wish that I could go to sleep now and wake up Monday evening with the surgery being over. As you can tell, it is 3:35 in the AM and I haven't been able to go to sleep. It is sleeting here in Virginia... so just reading, posting and looking for a mind diversion.... usta
I know the feeling. It is 2:15 here and I can't sleep either. I had a real bad day yesterday lots of pain. I went to the store and bought a book and some goodies that I really like so I will have it when I come home. I am going to take the book and a couple of pepsi's to the hospital. May not have time to read but I will have it anyway.
I don't know about you but I am really getting nervous. I have alot to do tomorrow so I am sure the day will fly by. Tomorrow night will be hard as the nothing to drink after 10pm rule is in effect. Can only take a sip of water to take meds if needed. I have to be at the hospital at 6am how about you? I know you told me but I forgot.
I am just going to pretend I am on that hawian vacation with the pina coldas
I have to be there at 7:20 A.M. Atleast you can take your meds. The nurse told me to stop by midnight because I'm on demerol and she said the anestetition (sp?) needs to know how much they need to give me to put me out. I think that I will try to sleep a lot today. I am a smoker and they wanted me to stop 48 hours before, I wasn't able to do it yesterday but I will try to give it atleast 24. I figure if I'm sleeping it won't bother me so much. I have decided to try to quit AGAIN. I didn't know that smoking could contribute to disc problems until just recently. You know it, I am getting nervous too. I believe that we will both do just fine! Chin up girl, it will all be just a memory oh so soon! Diet and Sage, thanks for the vote of confidence and support. It has really helped! Well, tata for now. Thanks for everything! Usta

Thank you all for your kind thoughts and words. I am confident that this will be a piece of cake. I am just keeping the palm trees and ocean and pina coladas in my mind. I really am anxious to see if after surgery if the pre surgery pain is still there. Seems that others that have had surgery all seem to know right away.
I will try to post again tonight as I have lots of cooking to do right now.
hugs to all my cyber friends thanks for being there
Usta & Clover - Wishing you the both the best of luck tomorrow with both of your surgery's. I am Looking forward to hearing how well you are doing the next time you post. I will say a prayer for you both in the morning. Hope you both are able to get some sleep tonight. Take care.
Thank you all for your kind words and support. The prayers are especially appreciated. I believe that Clover and I will do just fine. It is most hard I think to just get thru the pre surgery jitters. Clover I am also looking forward to waking up to find the nerve pain gone. I think I could live with some minor lower back discomfort if it didn't include this horrible leg and hip pain. Thanks again everyone for your support and prayers. usta
