One More Day

The day. Finally just a day to go and I will be going in for my surgery tomorrow morning. Weird and wonderful events have been occurring. Last week it was wild wind and rain storms causing a boil water warning that is STILL in effect. Yesterday it was snow. And it is still snowing. HIGHLY unusual for this time of year so all sorts of new weather records are being made. I hope the weirdness does not creep into my procedure. I want nothing but normal there. Unless by weird I mean weirdly healing almost immediately and not having to stay over 3 days. Weirdly healing of my boob so no surgery is needed at all. Weirdly total completion of all my Christmas shopping.

As I mentioned, weirdness abounds and there was a full power outage today at the hospital where I am to be operated on resulting in all the surgery being cancelled. Things should be just fine by tomorrow but I am supposed to call in the wee hours to check if the operating rooms are working. Fabu. Weirdness continues since my surgeon told me I would be in the hospital for two nights but when I got my pre-surgery phone call I was told it would be three nights. THREE NIGHTS!!!!! Oh crap. I am not sure there are enough tranqs in the hospital pharmacy to keep me chilled out that long. Oh lordy. Thinking about two days was bad enough.

Today I am doing laundry, packing my bag and getting out everything Yoshi needs to stay here for three nights with minimal adult supervision. I had better not come home to high long distance bills or outrageous pay-per-view porn charges. The liquor is locked away along with the cat nip and Q-Tips. Gramma and Grampa will be visiting at feeding times and have even offered to sleep over if Yoshi gets too lonely. This is a potentially dodgy situation as they may never move out after sleeping in my fantastically comfy bed. Especially with the built in foot warmer. That would be the cat.

So yeah, I am nervous and scared but I also just want this over with. Just want these next few days to fly by so I can be home in my comfy bed with my purry foot heater. I want to read all the great books I took out of the library and look forward to Christmas and put this all behind me and get on with fun stuff.

Wish me luck.


PS-Opera Gal asked me to put this up. Sounds cool.





The Truth About Christmas


And oh yeah! I have been visiting blogs like crazy and want to comment but Blogger hasn't been allowing me. So know that I have been at yer place but just lurking in the background. Hopefully when I get out of the hospital Blogger will have figured its own self out and I can comment again.

Take care!

I am sending you calm, healing vibes and wishes for a surgery and recovery so very weirdly normal. And a big hug, too, just cause.

Kranki:

I, and everyone else, am sending you so many good calming, happy, healing vibes.

I'm with Kalki. The only weirdness should be the crazy fast healing! I wish you that and so much more.

You should melt snow for water. Just make sure it's white snow.

I just know that your surgery is going to go well.

Don't forget to let Yoshi know your room number. She can sneak you in food and womens porno mags or whatever women read. Maybe the two of you could have a pillow fight. Or some such girly fun.

Don't take pictures of your surgery. And put an "X" where they are supposed to do the surgery.
You don't want to end up with a big sexy knee or something.

Umm..That's all the advice I have. Wishing you the best..

Dima said...

Good luck! Everything will be fine babe :)

That Yoshi sounds like a high maintenance kitty! I can't let Suki read this, she may report me to DCFS!

Sharkey said...

We'll be thinking of you tomorrow. Sending healing vibes your way!

Kranki, as always, Hooch and I are sending you all our best (although, being a dog and all, Hooch would really like to chase Yoshi around for a while). Lots of good thoughts headed your way from Southern California, and that means a lot. Remember, this is the land of Boobs (real and fake). I don't have much of either, but I'm wishing extra good thoughts for you all the same.

whfropera said...

happyblue had some very good advice - i also want to warn you about the potential G & G catsitting, when you come home to a cat who would rather be with THEM, since he got spoiled while I was out of town!!
(oops, rambling there)
Blogger sucks, I agree.
Thanks for posting - I'll be thinking good thoughts during your surgery.

Squirl said...

I hope everything is going weirdly well for you at this moment.

Babs said...

Wishing you much luck and quick healing on hooties, part deux!

LadyBug said...

I know it'll be a few days before you read this, but I just want you to know I'm thinking of you and praying that everything goes spectacularly well.

Love and hugs to you, sweetie.

east village idiot said...

I'm prayin' for you Kranki. You're gonna get through this and have a beautiful christmas. love, evi

Susie said...

Been thinking of you and praying for you all day. Won't stop. Here's hoping for good weird things.

alan said...

Hopefully you are doing wonderfully at this moment, and Yoshi is behaving, and in a couple of days I'll see RSS pop up to say "Kranki's back in town"!

Thinking of you...

Hope you're doing well Kranki. Keep kickin that cancer in the ass. I wish you happy, quick healing fairies...

Thinking about you, and sending you good vibes.

Squirl said...

I hope you're doing okay. I'm thinking about you. Quick-healing fairies, that's what you need. :)

torrie said...

I'm thinking about you.

angela marie said...

I know that you are probably recovering from a NOTweird surgery right now. Grab a great book, nap, and keep pushing that morphine button.

Yoshi will be fine, but may take to wrapping all of your Christmas presents and writing Christmas cards FOR you. That's what happens to a bored kitty.

:)

Take care.

eclectic said...

Alli said...

Prayers for you, and I wish I were there to sneak some 'tips to the Yoshi. Mama's outta the house, you gotta party, man!
