Just a little bit longer...

I was a little bitter in my last snow post. Well, a lot bitter. I spent the whole holiday being stressed about surgery and it was for nothing. I wasn't exactly stressed about having my colon and rectum removed, but more-so wondering how my brother was going to manage being my primary caretaker for a week. Then when they started forecasting a snow storm, I became obsessed with wondering if the weathermen would be wrong or not. In the end, they turned out to be right and I was stuck in Philly. If we had left early Sunday morning before the storm hit, we probably would have made it to Baltimore in a timely manner and been able to walk to the hospital in the morning. However, the city of Baltimore had issued a Snow Emergency so I assumed they were gonna get pounded as well. It turned out to be a crazy storm in that the snow totals varied greatly by areas that were only separated by miles. In parts of Philly the totals were over a foot, but in the Northeast, where I live, we got about 8 inches.

Luckily there was a cancellation for a surgery on Monday, the 3rd, so I was able to be fit in then. I am very happy about this because I would go crazy waiting any longer. I've been ready for this for months and the last two weeks I've been very sick. The good part of all of this is that my mom will be with me for the first few days after surgery and then my brother or dad will come towards the end. I can't even tell you how much of a relief it is to have my mom with me (not that my brother is incompetent) because there are just some things you need your mom for. And this is definitely one of them.

Okay, just wanted to fill everyone in on what's happening. I am sure I'll post something more over the weekend. Happy New Year!
