Hi Baxter...

Wonder if you are resting/sleeping or if you are up? I went to sleep at 9 or a little after and slept really good til my daughter from CA woke me up with a call. She always forgets the 2 hour time diff...! She is calling this morning before noon.. (again.)

Now here I am awake again and worrying, wouldn't you know? I only have one more day... ah gees......

It seems like yesterday the cold kind of went into my lungs a bit. I don't know what to do about that, really. I have to call my doctor's office this morning to get my surgery time, as I don't know it yet. I told one of the gal's last week that I felt like I was getting a cold and she told me to let them know if it got too bad. What is too bad??? Maybe they could do another chest xray when I get there before surgery? I don't know?

My nose isn't too stuffed, but my chest feels a little tight. My daughter (here in Iowa) says she thinks I'm okay, but I don't know??? I'll have to see when I get fully awake and around...

I don't think there is anything wrong with you using that ice. Like I said, I used it for a long time on my second surgery.

Baxter, does that morphine PCA or whatever it is called work? Is a person awake enough to hit the button? I have never had morphine before, I am sure. My daughter says it will numb me all over so I don't feel anything. Not sure about that? How long did you have the pump in the hospital? Your surgery was Fri. and you were home on Tues. When did they take that pump out and go to oral meds?

Ah Sh_t...I'm scared, yeah I am.. I wish my daughter could be with me tomorrow night so I didn't have to be alone. That stupid boy friend finally called me yesterday and I am not sure why. He said his "tooth" had been terrible over the past days......big deal, huh? Like that is any excuse for treating me horribly? He has some empty boxes he has been saving for me and says he is going to drop them off today. Oh joy......I don't think I'll go to the door, because if I let him in I will tell him off and then that will really upset me.

Well, this is it for now I guess. I am going to see what's on the news channel for now. Hope you are resting Baxter. Talk to ya tomorrow...... keep using the ice...
