I will go with the no news is good news theory right now, but I am still not off the hook with the whole EKG thing yet. Tracee did call from Dr. Nancy's office abut 11:30 a.m. and said they did locate an EKG from back in the day (1998? Don't even remember that one) and she was sending all the reports to the anesthesiologists to review...and if they have concerns they will call her. Otherwise, if I don't hear from her I am to assume things are a go for Friday. She also told me that "I don't change surgery dates" so even if there is an issue, she would have it taken care of by Friday--in other words, I would get cardiac clearance either Wednesday or Thursday. (I would guess if I am about to have a major cardiac infarction or some deep vein thrombosis of the major heart valve (I made those things up) they would not go ahead with it) Tracee said she didn't think anything was a big deal based on what she knew, but I doubt she can read EKG's...anyway...who knows. What I do know is she hasn't called after this a.m. so I will take that as a positive.
Mr. Hicky Rash is better again today, but towards the end of the day when I was a hot, sweaty, frizzy principal it did start to redden up a bit and itch. I cheated and put more cream on it when I got home and will do so again tonight after my shower. But for the most part, it does look better. It certainly isn't anything that I, with my University of Google medical degree, would stop surgery over. I just don't like how it comes and goes...but I guess eczema can do that, as well as mean ol' cancer...you know the mind game that I like to play.
School was a success from all stand points today. Josh was a bit grouchy about "YOUR school is sooooo hot!!!" and about teachers whose syllabusses (what he said) are so negative...but that Spanish, Graphic Arts, and oh yeh, Gym will be great. He thought lunch was ok too. Andrew says all his classes "are not all that scary" and he seems happier than happier for some reason. He is working on his binders as we speak, without me telling him to... Says he has a chance to play some downs this Friday so maybe that is what is making him happy? Or maybe it is a girl? Who knows? Maybe it is pre-calculus? I am sure that is it : )
Is it strange that I am actually looking forward to Friday? When I had my neck tumor out in 2001 I cried the whole way up to U of M. Wonder if I will be that way early Friday morning? Jim and I have to leave at 4:30 a.m. to ensure we are there at 6:00 a.m. Ok, now with my excitement, watch us have to cancel. But then maybe I can see Andrew play. Ok, mind is being dumb again.
I need to tell my hubby what I want from DQ. It is a family tradition that we have DQ the first day of school.
All of you have a GREAT night--will update you all tomorrow.
3 days and counting. Prayers are flying even more now!
