Dinah and Djuna had a blast with their friends at their birthday party. Then, their birthday was a few days later, and they had even more presents to open, and more cake. Basically, they had a week-long birthday party. I had as much fun as they did. Eventually, I'll get pictures up on Flickr.
It's been a busy week of pre-op tests and appointments. So far, everything is on for surgery on Monday, August 11th.
I am nervous about it, but I guess that's normal. At the same time, I am looking forward to surgery so that one more major part of my treatment will be over.
I have asked Dwayne to post a brief update here as soon as he can after surgery. He might be able to get to it on Monday evening, but I doubt it because the surgery is long, and it doesn't even start until 10:30 am or so.
Thanks again to everyone for their support and prayers. On Monday, I will be in the capable hands of my doctors, and I know that they will take good care of me.
But, between now and Monday, there is more fun to have! Tomorrow, it's Dwayne's birthday, and my mom arrives on Saturday. She will watch the girls on Sunday morning so that Dwayne and I can go on a date!
