Two things have happened this past week while I was on vacation in Michigan.
1) My surgery date was pushed back one week because Dr. Mayo needs to be at a meeting on the 16th. My new date is April 23. When I first got the e-mail from Keri, I almost started to tear up, as it's already been such a long wait. But my sister soothed me, and now I'm okay with it. It's only one more week. However, the date change makes my family a little hesitant to start making concrete plans for the surgery ... we don't want to get our airline tickets if the date could change again.
2) I saw the airport in a new light, a semi-scary, how-in-the-heck-am-I-going-to-do-this-after-surgery kind of light. Giant bumps in the jet bridge, tight corners, low seats, cramped quarters, etc. Yikes. All I know is that it's going to be quite an adventure!
