I looked for a photo that describes my upcoming birthday, and this is what I found. Yes, it's weird. What am I doing on my birthday this year?
I'm having outpatient surgery. No, I didn't plan it that way. It was supposed to be the week after. My birthday is July 10th. The doctor only does surgery on Wednesday, and it was supposed to take place on the 17th. The 4th was out because it's a holiday weekend, and the 24th was out because the doctor was going on vacation. They called me and told me they realized later that the doctor was taking a two-week vacation. That left the 10th as my only choice. I really didn't want to put it off for another month because I would have to do all the pre-op stuff all over again.
So, it ended up on my birthday... afternoon. Which means I can't eat or drink anything all day until after the surgery. I'm not sure how I will feel, but I will certainly try to have some birthday cake!
