Home from surgery.....all is well....hurts like the dickens....

I'm off to bed with gravol pain pills and
half a banana.

Spittoon for obvious reasons.

Sense of humour intact.

First time I have ever come out of anaesthetic
in the O.R.
Came to abrubtly as they yanked out the
endotracheal tube.
Hello World, Hello.....OUCH......

Soooooo.......tomorra is the day 0745hours....

Booked for surgery tomorrow a.m.
Will be home later in the day.t
3-5 hour surgery so....No Big.

Not much else, been tidying and laundering
and general maintenance so I do
not trip in my altered state and
compound the issue.

Semi Sunny, headin' out with Johnny Cash........

Went to the library yesterday, did some errands

Long chat with Barb while she was driving to
Ottawa. Hands Free of course.

Verra dark grey and teeming rain most of day.....

An Uninspired day.........

Pre-op Nurse consultation this morning.
Same old same old.........

Played final jeopardy with Mutti,
she was jocular, Jay had watched with her
and she sounded like she was having fun.
This very dour guy that never cracks a
smile won again. Not Mutti's favourite.

Dancin' with the stars began tonite, I
DVR'd it so I could zip thru commercials
and the crummy performances.

I'm in computer/ebook hellllll...........arghhh....

Downloaded a book from the library, and it is not
going on my Kobo.
All software downloaded but it is saying no.
usb plugged in, and internet working but it
is asking for a wirelesss connection.

Brain tired, have spent a couple of hours,
probably have more adobe downloaded
than necessary, and some software from
kobo probably downloaded twice because
I keep thinking I've done something wrong.

Walked 20 blocks, sun peeking out, took pics
of cherry trees.

ran around and did errands, and picked up
income tax receipts from Friends For LIfe.

Brain Done In.

crab in a salad for dinner.

Bought some whole wheat Hot Cross Buns.

Walked 15 blocks, to library and then the skies
