When it rains it pours?
A very nice lady called me this morning at 8:00 to tell me that she had managed to get me in for rotator cuff surgery on May 29 at 2:15(she parted the sea to make this happen). This is awesome because I am trying to get it done before my husbands company possibly declares bankruptcy at the end of the month. We are pretty sure we have the option of COBRA...but at $2500 a month... because I have a preexisting condition we are STUCK! The recovery from this surgery is the bitch as I spoke of before ;-( I have been told I probably won't be able to go back to work for a couple of months and 6 months of PT. Today I got a EKG and the blood work done. I have hard veins to find so it's never very pleasant. I'm a little worried about the IV because it is so late in the afternoon, I will be very dehydrated. Any tips? This Saturday we are renting a van and driving up to San Francisco to pick up DS2. He is a junior at SFSU and this is his first summer to come home. We are leaving his bed and a few things at our friends in Half Moon Bay and the rest we are bringing home. It is at least a 8 hour drive each way....but it will help take my mind off of the up coming surgery. We are going to take Hwy 101 back and stop in Pismo Beach. DS2 turned 21 on May 2 so we are going to take him to a few wineries.....FUN!!! Memorial weekend DS1, DIL and grandbaby are coming here to stay for 4 days. We get to watch our grandson overnight for the first time because they are going to a wedding down south. I am so excited...So as you can see I have plenty besides getting ready for immobility to keep me occupied. I don't think I ever mentioned that I am the executrix of a dear friend of ours trust. He passed away on 1/21/12. OMG you can't even imagine how much time I am spending taking care of his affairs. He had 92 years of STUFF! I am getting closer to being able to put his house on the market... but there is NO end in sight. My husband has worked for this company for 16 years and they have been in this situation before. Really never this close and now they have to be out of their building by the first of June. This is all very scary....and he carries the weight of the world on his shoulders...But, we are trying to stay sane! Barbara...this might be up your alley...he is in clinical development. Sorry this is all over the place...but I wanted you all to know what might be going on if you don't hear from me for a while. Enjoy the beautiful weather...I'll be watching my garden grow! XO
