Tomorrow is the day of my surgery.
I have approximately 4 more hours in which I am allowed to eat anything. If you follow this blog, then you know that I don't usually do the cooking around here. There is meat in the refrigerator waiting for the magical moment when Ole will fire up the grill and turn that meat into yummy hamburgers. But that moment has seemingly been temporarily delayed while he sits and stares at some Danish soccer match on TV. Apparently it's very exciting - his team isn't playing but rumor has it that a very high ranked team is getting a pounding from a very low ranked team, and that means there is some random cheering, in Danish, coming from the living room. As long as the food appears before midnight, I'm good!
Tomorrow morning I'm not allowed to eat or drink after 6 am, which basically means that if I want to have anything to drink in the morning, I'll have to get up early, but if I can't have my coffee (with cream) what's the point of that? Sheesh.
I had to call the hospital today to find out what number I've been assigned in the surgical order - and apparently I'm #3, which means that instead of getting there at 7 AM, I don't have to be there until 9 AM. Not so bad, though I think I'd prefer to just get up and go rather than sitting around waiting.
I just want to take a moment, again, to say thank you to all of you who have taken the time to send me nice comments, Emails, phone calls, and cards. I feel pretty lucky to have such wonderful people in my life!
I hope to be back and writing very soon, but in the meantime, I've asked my fellow expat and friend, Kelli, if she would be so kind as to post an update or two for all of you as my guest author. Maybe you'll even get that update in Danish too! (She's all crazy like that posting in Danish and English - a skill I haven't yet managed to acquire!)
See you on the flip side!
