LOL!! If I let him live that long. Thanks Aunt Bea!

Shrek was so sweet at the doctors yesterday and asked some insightful questions. He's more worried about this than I am.

Of course he is! He's worried about his honey. Perfectly normal. I worry about my honey driving home in rush hour traffic every evening. If she isn't home by a certain time, I call her.

It will be a robotic assist surgery! At least one night in the hospital. Then a month off work. I just want it over with.
Thank you for the update. I hope all goes well with the surgery and healing.

Not a video of my surgery...I have a video of a surgery demo to look at. That's a good question, though. I will ask about that! Gross Shrek out to no end... Hey, I got to see his guts, he should get to see mine.

The surgeon was pleased that I would allow medical/nursing students in to watch as a learning experience. I enjoyed my clinicals, why wouldn't I want budding MD's and Nurses to have the same experience.

Today is shaping up to be a day I need coffee to be able to make my coffee...

He called the medical supply place and got me a stool with a handrail so I could get into bed. He has also hauled out the shower chair that he used. Poor Shrek, learning to be a nurse... He is being sweet and loving over the whole thing.

Yes, Carol, you are quite right! After I posted, I realized I was watching a re-broadcast of a 2010 Christmas special. So she was likely 10 at the time. She really is amazing! Thank you for sharing who she is. I'm trying to post a link too. Not sure if it's going to work tho.

I'm trying to think of some words of comfort for PF as she faces her surgery.

These words from Eleanor Roosevelt are not pretty and soft, but are "tough and encouraging" kinda like our Princess.......I hope they help in some small way as she faces life's next journey.

"You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You are able to say to yourself, &lsquo;I lived through this horror. I can take the next thing that comes along."

My sincere wishes for better health in 2014 Fi!
