It’s Sunday so I wasn’t going to post today but I’ve been doing something I think I will tell you all about – just to think about eh? Aside that is from the running about and list making I’m doing so that J. will not run mad taking care of me after the surgery.
Now let us all hold in mind this is happy-surgery, totally selfish, and happily so – it’s the bloody tests discoveries along the way that are being scary and a pain. But then that is how the Universe takes care of us, I would never have had my thyroid checked, or a CBC, or been in a hurry to get a mammogram – so that’s all good.
What I have been doing today is writing my “just in case” letters. No matter how good your surgeon, your anaesthesiologist, and your nurses – stuff happens. I believe you all know me well enough by now to know by fact and innuendo that I have lived a life that has included sudden death, as well as violent deaths of those close to me, and those who are fellow humans. I have learned many things from this, but most of all, to never leave things unsaid. So this morning I wrote my daughter, my best friend, and my love – letters telling them how much I love them, to take care of each other, and thanking them for their love.
Even if you are not having surgery – it’s a good idea eh? We never know. And thank you lovely readers for all your kind words and encouragement these past two years, for allowing me into your community. If all goes well the surgery is Friday and I’m just assuming (understatement) that I won’t feel like posting for a few days! But I will let you know the state of affairs as soon as I can; meanwhile take good care of yourselves, those you love, and the world.
