Then, the fun begins. No, not the surgery! Kelly is coming up to spend the night and go with us to the hospital, as Jeff is teaching and can only drop me off. At least he's in town this week - next week? I'll be on my own. Anyway, Kelly very nicely insisted on coming here to take me home after surgery, get me settled, and
Here's just about everything I'll need for my recuperation - and I thought it was funny that Paco posed with the stuff, because of course, he'll be right there, helping me with every step (and barking at the crutches - so far he's not a fan):
Basket full of little wrapped presents sent by my mom - I'm to open one a day to keep me entertained (kind of like an advent calendar), random library books, new sudoku book, Bridesmaids DVD (I've seen the movie but heard that the outtakes are hilarious), my netbook so I can stay in touch with you all, TV remotes, dog cookies (Paco needs treats, too) and emergency chocolate in the form of Dove Promises.
OK, I'm ready. Fingers crossed that by doing this, I'll be back to running, pain-free, soon. That would be wonderful!
