Hi from my hospital bed

After drinking another disgusting glass of potassium, the nurse let me use the computer for a few minutes.

I am OK. but bored to tears. I am just hanging out until my surgery on Tuesday morning. After the surgery I'll have a couple more days in the hospital before I can got home. I'm sure I can handle it considering that I'm in a palace compared to a regular hospital.

Everyone has been so gracious and nice, and it's honestly not so bad except for the constant peeing. Since I do that at home, too, it really doesn't bother me too much.

I spend a lot of time looking out the window at my lovely view of the hills of Boston. I can't see the city, but I can see a lot of Brookline and JP.

The kids are both with their friends. The Girl and her boyfriend were visiting yesterday morning, but as I could have told you, the Boy couldn't be bothered to show up, even with money on his Charley Card subway pass. It was "too cold."

So that's pretty much it. I will try to report more apres surgery.

Thanks for all the lovely emails, twitters, and comments. It makes my day!

I'm glad to hear you at least have a lovely view to look at in your palace of a hospital! :-) Take care, I'll be thinking of you and praying for you tomorrow as you go into surgery.

Sweetpea~that nasty potassium in one of the most important electrolytes in your body but I bet you know that. In my clinicals I have had several patients with CHF. Between the lasix and other diuretic meds the K+gets all peed out. You def want enough K+ so you'll fly through surgery and recovery with nary a problem.

You're in my thoughts and prayers.
