Earthquakes and hurricanes.....hmmmm

Well, we started the week off with an earthquake and are ending it with a hurricane.  Oh my!!  We are running out in the morning to get a few more supplies and then will wait the storm out.

I had my endoscopy appointment yesterday.  My husband decided that he does NOT like me on anesthesia.  ha ha, he likes getting a response from me when he is cutting up and picking on me. Under the influence, I just stared at him.  lol  I think he was hoping to have some new things to pick on me about.
Well, the visit went well.  Doc said I had a small hiatel hernia, but nothing to worry about.  Whew!!!  Come on Sept. 12.  My last check mark and then we can get this show on the road.

Well, keep us southern folks in your prayers as we try to ride out this hurricane.

WOW!!!!  What a busy summer it has been.  Time is flying by and I for one am glad.  I am so ready for my surgery and I am trying to be patient.

Well, some friends and I jetted off to Maine for a long weekend to see some friends.  I was quite nervous about the flight, not for fear of flying, but of the seatbelt.  My friends assured me that the seat belt would fit. Each plane we got on was different.  The first one didn't have much left and then the next one I could barely fasten.  Coming back it was pretty much the same until that last plane.  I really thought I was going to have to ask for an extender.  I sucked it all in and finally got it to click.  Whew!  I thought, I hate this, I don't like not being "normal".  (ha ha, my husband would say, "you will never be normal" he would be speaking mentally lol) I am so looking forward to getting on a plane in the future and listing it as a NSV (non surgery victory).

I go this coming Wednesday for my endoscopy.  I am excited for that (I know, that is weird).  I am excited because it is another check mark towards submitting all this data to the insurance.  Last thing is a doc visit on Sept. 12th and then all the paper work gets sent to the insurance.  Then the waiting will begin.

I went to another support group this past Monday.  Had a great time and am learning so much.  The staff from my doctor's office are so awesome and encouraging.  Ha ha, they made one lady spit her gum out.  I felt like I was in school again.  They said my surgeon had to do emergency surgery this past week because a lady was chewing gum, stumbled and swallowed it.  She couldn't get it up or down.
Speaking of that...I have given up soda, gun and straws.  Woo Hoo!!
