Paperwork and Long Words

Lilly Ann
My very feral Lynx Point Siamese.
She's been gone for several years now.
I call her my heart cat.
I loved her like no other.
I still miss her.
I still cry when I think of her.
Just saying ...

My paperwork arrived last night.
I opened it a bit ago.
I now know what will be done during my upcoming surgery.
I knew sort of but the appointment didn't go my way.
I had expected to hear that everything was fine.
Instead I heard that I was in failure.
Then lots of we need to do this and that.
With me being business like and agreeing.
Those visits are like you are talking about someone else.
You agree how bad it is.
Yes, let's operate.
When you walk out you realize that they were talking about you.
 
Anyway, like I was saying, now I have the actual words.
I looked them up.
Fancy long medical words.
Basically, I am getting a two for one special.
My right kidney will be worked on.
The two stones are large and in a bad place.
Years ago they just took them out surgically.
Now, they can do a fancy sort of risky surgery.
That's the one they will do.
 
On the left, they are doing dye/look around tests.
If he finds something that he can do something about, he will.
Thus, the two for one special.
When I wake up, I'll know more.
It's a look and see kind of surgery.
 
The surgery doesn't really bother me.
It's when I wake up.
The last two times have been wild.
Ten or more people hovering.
My heart goes crazy during surgery.
I went down to 20 degrees last time.
Woke up frantic.
They had heat wraps around me.
It was really bad.
 
I don't want to wake up like that again.
 
My kidney Dr. has consulted with my heart Dr.
I wouldn't be doing this if I didn't have to.
Only I do have to.
Cause I like living in my woods.
I like it a lot.
 
What you have to do to survive.
Well, I'm going to do it.
 
Just saying ...

I think you have described all this in a way that few people could do. It seems like things get scarier and scarier as we get older and we have to be braver and braver. I like your attitude. Just hold on to the idea of living in the woods. Big hugs...

Well, when there is no choice I guess you have to do what the Nile commercials said and "just do it ". Of course you'll ne asleep and it is the surgeons who'll be just doing it. I'll be praying for you and them. When do they expect to get around to it ?

There comes a time in your life when you walk away from all of the drama and the people who create it. You surround yourself with people who make you laugh. Forget the bad and focus on the good. Love the people who treat you right and pray for those who don’t. Life is too short to be anything but happy. Falling down is part of life, getting back up is living.
