Countdown & Checklist

With my mastectomy looming just hours away, it is time to go over the requisite checklist:

1) Derma-planning followed by an Osagi peel. DONE (It will be bad enough to be the Bride of Frankenstein this time tomorrow, but I cannot handle being the Bride of the Wolfman too!)

2) Pedicure and manicure. ALMOST DONE (With the multitude of down-time in the OR and recovery, g-d forbid someone should glance upon the toes and be given another reason to snicker!)

3) Packed lovely customized post-surgical camis. OY VEY, DONE! (And yes, they come complete with their own little portable "fluffies" & not ask!)

4) Made the kids' school lunches (Because radiology wants me sooooooo early in the a.m. that it makes me wonder what they plan to do with me for 6 hours. So very glad my surgery is not being done at a teaching hospital!)

5) Explained to 8 year-old son's teacher, who called at 9 p.m., that "no" I was not having surgery on the entire left-side of my body from brain to foot. DONE?? (Re-explained to 8 year old too!)

6) Read 8 year-old an extra long bedtime story and danced with him to a Weird Al Yankovic CD. (Yes, it can be DONE.)

7) Watched kids sleeping (even the 17 year old). LET THAT PLEASURE NEVER BE DONE!
