Army of Mom

So this is how liberty dies ... with thunderous applause.



I had to get up at 3:30 a.m. this morning to be at work at 4:50 a.m. for a local morning news show planning to shoot live from the airport this morning. So totally sucks since it is 5:15 and they're not here yet.

I didn't get to sleep till about midnight last night because I worked till almost 8 p.m. and then walked outside and had an almost flat tire. Drove to the nearest gas station and its air pump was broken. Army of Dad came to help me out and we went to the next gas station and he put air in it for me and I drove it home. Then, I was up for a few hours after that doing my IV and eating dinner. Nothing like eating dinner at 10 p.m. Fortunately, AoD made me something, so I could eat while IVing.

I had to get up and shower this morning and then go put more air in the tire to keep it inflated for the commute. I won't have time today to get it fixed or switched either. That sucks. I have to be at the hospital at 12:30 and my catheter insertion surgery is at 2:30. I'm anxious to get the IV out of my arm. Nothing like walking around for six days with a needle stuck in your vein. I don't know what the catheter is going to be like. One nurse said it is sore for a day or two and then you don't really feel it any more. So, hopefully that will be the case. I'll ask the surgeon today what the removal will be like. I'm fearful of that. The removal of the drain grenade that had been in for two weeks was pretty painful because my body was healing around it. If I have to leave this in for two weeks, I'm not sure what it will be like. I've been told I'm awake when they do it. I hope they seriously dope me up before. We'll see.

I wish I could just have this all over with and get back to my regular life. I feel for those folks with chronic health conditions. I would be so bad at being sick.

I think I hear a truck outside, so maybe the camera crew is here and I'll have something to occupy my thoughts other than anticipation about the procedure today. I would love to crawl back in bed and sleep for a day, but no danger of that.
