The weather has been truly glorious this weekend! I managed to go out for a short walk yesterday and discovered my neighbor's bleeding heart in bloom. Laureen (my neighbor) is gifted with a real green thumb. Her yard is full of flowers and vignettes of plantings (makes my yard look like a weed asylum:). I love bleeding heart but have never successfully grown it (despite that our yards are quite shady) - probably because the soil is in our yard so full of clay? Anyway, I took advantage of her green thumb to take a photo. :)
I have been preparing for my surgery tomorrow for several days. I still have to pack a bag for the hospital and finish picking up my bedroom so there are fewer (literal) stumbling blocks for movement. :) I am feeling a bit anxious about tomorrow ... but not frightened. I feel quite confident in the surgical and care team (and by the fact that many people I meet have had the same surgery with good outcomes).
This will probably be the last post I make here for several days. I will have my iPhone and iPad with me in the hospital but I don't know how much free time I will have to use them. Apparently you spend a lot of time in physical therapy there (and the rest probably sleeping:).
