Hi-ho hi-ho - it's off to surgery I go!

Well it's almost here - time to get the elbow fixed and get on with life!  I have to admit I'm a little hesitant - not necessarily nervous - but something.  What if I don't wake up?  Who will mother my children?  I can't imagine another woman bringing up my kids.  Oh the thought of it makes me shudder!  Really what the hell would I do if I was dead?  (not much I suspect) I suppose I could taunt and haunt "her" but really do I believe in that kinda stuff?  (for the record if I don't wake up I hope I can haunt - I've always wanted to haunt!)

I sense the whole house is a bit unsettled because really who will find the lost clothing the next few days?  WHO will find the mustard?  Who will bark the orders?   I'll be on a vicoden diet the next few days and I hope the family doesn't expect alot out of me.  I won't be preparing any 5 course dinners or Pioneer Woman recipes either.  Joe is cooking dinner tomorrow night - fish on the grill, Uncle Ben's rice in the microwave package - and bag o'salad!  Nothing wrong with that though!  Me?  I'll have another vicoden and some gingerale please - because mixing alcohol and pain medication isn't kosher - I DO want to wake up and don't want to be the next Karen Ann Quinlan!

I look forward to reading all my peeps blogs the next few days while I am home hallucinating  - keep it real girls and keep me laughing!  Please!

Ain't Miss-beehavin!  (yet)


  1. Good luck. I hope all goes well. The last time I had surgery, it was oral surgery. I had something in my gums repaired. Anyway, my hubby was wonderful at taking care of me. He even brought me soup when I "woke up", except he forgot to tell me I had a small roll of gauze in my mouth, and I swallowed it with the first spoonful.

    Laughter really is the best medicine! And it's free!!

  2. well well, I must say you are awfully witty on this blog! I think you've found your calling. :) Been thinking about you and hope everything goes well tomorrow. Dr. B will fix you right up. Hopefully you won't have too much down time. I've got some extra perks at home from my surgery... I'll sell 'em to ya for cheap if you run out. ;)

  3. Oh my! Good, good luck!! Keep the vicodan close at hand!!

  4. Hi Bee,
    Thinking of you as your undergo your surgery. Keep a stiff upper lip and keep your arm elevated.

  5. Now I happen to KNOW, firsthand that you can indeed blog with only one hand!

    Good luck with your surgery and recovery. I'm sure you'll do GREAT! :)

  6. I know we've designated someone to dress you, but I forgot to delegate someone to go potty with you and pull up your pants!

    I hope you're doing OK and not in much pain.

  7. Thank you all for your well wishes - i cannot type with 2 hands so it's a bit frustrating - arm is sore today! I feel for the disabled - we all need to give more!
