Off to the hospital in the morning

It's finally here.

My surgery is scheduled for tomorrow (Tuesday) at 1:30 pm. The doctor said he anticipated it would take about 2-1/2 hours, and then I'd spend about 2 hours in recovery. I'll stay overnight in the hospital, and HOPEFULLY be home Wednesday. There is a 5-20% that I will need to stay a second night in the hospital, or come home with a catheter. If that happens, of course we'll deal with it...but I'm praying I can avoid both of those!

I've been busy getting preschool stuff together and ready, doing back-to-school shopping for Shannon, and cleaning the house...all getting ready for my down-time. My doctor told me that I should be doing NOTHING for the first two weeks. Getting up and using the restroom, walking around the house for about 5 minutes at a time...and that is it. Yikes!

Shannon's off to spend the night with a friend tonight, and we'll head to the hospital in the morning. I'll update here when I get home, and am able.

I appreciate your prayers and good thoughts!!!
