My surgery has been rescheduled for Monday, August 13, at 7:30 am, at Vanderbilt Medical Center. So now we know.
The Olympics will be over by then so no lying around in the hospital watching them with my son and daughter. I'm getting to see them at home, though, on my new HDTV! With help, the den got cleared out so I could have my TV. This is the only time I've used behavior modification on myself successfully. Usually, I tell myself that I don't have to wait and will do what I want to. LOL I'm really enjoying it. The house will be in shape by the time I have this surgery, which makes me feel better and like I can recuperate and relax. It's also giving me something to focus on along with the Olympics, so I don't have to think too much about the surgery. Nervous? Yes. But I have a positive outlook and feel optimistic about it all.
Thanks for the support and encouraging words! I appreciate all of you! :-)
