Either way - I'm ready to get it ALL OUT! Woke up from a good sleep around 2am and knew I would not be able to get back to sleep. We have all had our showers now and are just waiting to leave for the hospital. Page bought me another pair of yoga pants and I'm wearing them, one of my big "men: denim shirts and my clogs. They told me to wear a button up shirt because that is what I will be wearing home. Guess it will be hard to pull something over my head. They have tried to prepare me for some significant pain for a few days. Everyone has been wonderful and I so appreciate all the prayers that have been going up for me. There is probably a long journey ahead but I am so ready to take this first step - think I will feel much better once I know they got all they could and hopefully radiation will take the rest. So let's get'er done! Poor Princess Miya is very, very confused right now. :-)

It's a beautiful day in the neighborhood, a beautiful day in the neighborhood......it really is. We had a nice surprise visit from Alease - GG's oldest daughter and one of my oldest friends. She came bearing gifts - flowers! She and her hubby had gone to the Farmer's Market and picked up this gorgeous bunch of flowers. They look so good in the vase Ann brought her flowers in don't they?

Roseanne came to see me today - my dear, dear Roseanne. We talked, we ate, we talked some more, we laughed and talked some more. What we do best. One of the things we laugh about is how we are one of the best kept secrets in our fair city and world. Only our children actually know how close we actually are and even they aren't totally in that loop. :)

Slept okay last night - got up kinda early and been pretty easy going for the most part. Had lots of phone calls and several visitors. Rie and Sister Buoy brought me some flowers Gonzalez had bought for me.

After spending all morning at the hospital, we left happy to know we got the date we wanted for my surgery - Monday, October 10th. One person said the schedule was for 300 minutes - 5 hours. Of course I think that includes everything from start to finish. I've been poked, prodded, stuck, squeezed, weighed and questioned so now I just have to wait again. I knew I was going to like my surgeon the first time I met him. He apologized for running late but he had baby sitting duty. I like that.....

It has been so nice having Kurt, Leah and Page with me this weekend. BigD left for the coast very early Friday morning and they arrived very late Friday night. Kurt and Keith went with Lee to listen to some great bands live out in a big field somewhere Saturday. Since it turned off pretty cold quickly, Kurt and Leah had to go shopping for clothes that he already needed and felt good about their purchases.
