Wow does time fly

Things are going well, hitting the gym as much as possible, min 5 days a week. My surgery is scheduled for November 7. When the scheduler first called with this date, I was like yikes. That is the day my mom passed away. So, I asked if there was another date, perhaps sooner. She said she might be able to get me in on Halloween. Yikes again. My family is bonkers over Halloween, they just love this holiday. I am not going to ruin their holiday, especially should God forbid something go wrong. So, Nov 7 it is.

Before the surgery I have to do the colonoscopy prep again(Wonderful eh?). The surgeon, who is very nice and has a very sarcastic sense of humor. I was laughing so much during my consult. We were gossiping about plastic surgeons.  The doctor said that after the surgery I will have issues with diarrhea for a few months. Great!  I will need to stock up on Scott TP for sure.

Well, I hope to return to work the beginning of the New year. My doctor has me out for longer. But, I would like to go back sooner.

The weather here is in the high 90's. Bummer. I am hoping to see some cooler weather. Last week, we had some actual rain. The kids and I went to a place called Bates Nut Farm. We had a great time.  I call them kids but they are 24 and 19. Haha, but they both went into the petting zoo to pet the baby animals. They had a pot bellied pig, a black one. Both of them said to me, hey mom Dakota is here. Dakota is my Black lab, she was a bit chubby and she and I have been doing some dieting and walking together so she has lost a lot of weight. But they still thought it was funny. :(

Been thinking about you and praying for you; sounds good to have the surgery scheduled; heck one time I had to go to court for the kid on our anniversary years back. The weather has been hot, but it should cool this week; I did like the rain last week! Glad you are also hitting the gym while you can before the surgery! Bates Nut Farm is a cool place indeed! Email me sometime at Lv2trnscrb@aol.com if you want so I can have your email address (I promise I won't stalk you or spam you) so I can check up on you when you are having surgery/afterwards in case you don't post.

Good luck on your upcoming surgery. I'm sure the date only reflects that your mom will be thinking of you and watching over you! :)

What a fun time it sounds like you had at the nut farm! :) Cool!!

Hey Gracie. Nov is the month your mama will be watching out for you even more then she already is. I'll be praying too.
Good for you exercising and getting just a tiny bit healthier before your surgery.
Take care Gracie. Blessings!
