Whoop whoop my surgeon called and the surgery center messed up so they had to move my surgery to next Friday, he's going to cover my overnight stay for the inconvenience. Friday actually works better than Tuesday anyways so I'm not too bummed. Oliver will take me Friday and then I stay for 23 hours and he'll pick me up Saturday - it's about an hour from my house. It will just be easier over the weekend because he'll be off work.
I'm pretty prepared - heres my list of things I've gotten - please let me know if you recommend something I don't have!
1. Recliner - a friend is giving me one that she used. I'll be sleeping in it for a while so I don't get anything nasty on my bed or couch.
2. Shower Wipes to use until I can take an actual shower.
3. A bath/Shower bench
4. a walker
5. A neck pillow
6. Go Girl - google it. ahhahahha.
7. pain pills and Arnica
I'm still waiting for my pre-op nurse call, but I'm not sure what to wear home. Maybe just a long nightgown that can go over my head? Not sure if I should wear pants? I also am not sure if I should purchase my own compression garments, I know they give you some, but some say they are super uncomfortable?
The surgery is 9 hours long and starts around Noon - I was telling Oliver how concerned I was about the doctor getting hungry - like do you stop to snack? He told me he was not at all surprised I'm worried about food.
In other news I bought an Air Fryer! I messed up my first attempt at sweet potato fries, the above recipe is in CELSIUS which I realized after they came out not cooked. Then I tried pork chops and they came out ahhhhhmazing, best chops ever! The Air Fryer cooks stuff up with hot circulating air so you don't have to use a bunch of oil - we also tried sausage in them and they were perfectly cooked!
I also did some Brussel sprouts in a foil pack with pecans and dried cranberries, faster than the oven too!
We took Aiden to his first movie - Finding Dory. He feel asleep on the way there and stayed asleep until the movie started, he then opened his eyes and got really excited about the huge screen, but like any typical 2 year old was up and down, walking around, and spilling the popcorn. Might be a while before we try again.
After another one of Madison's soccer jerseys was ruined in our stupid dryer we broke down and bought a new set, I prefer a top loading washer which are slim pickings, but everyone recommended a Samsung so I'm glad they had one.
BAE has been busy busy - she hasn't spent the night at home in almost a week. We only have a month until school starts so I'm letting her have her fun - Mimi's house is much more fun - she has a pool, 2 dogs, and a huge craft room. Can't blame the girl :) I spent most of my summers at my Grandma's house and it some of my fondest childhood memories, right down to the Mentos she used to bring me home from work.
