I am nesting. I find it incredibly exhausting yet at the same time it calms my nerves. I have especially been on edge for the last 72-hours or so, with each hour bringing me closer to being cancer free.
Surgery is Wednesday. I am checking in at 12:30; "OR time" is scheduled for 2:30-4:30; and, then, I should be in recovery until about 6:30 p.m. I had a call from my surgeon yesterday, and then today, a woman from Kaiser Admitting called me to begin their process.
With the surgery and its preparations on the forefront of my mind, I am reminded of when I was pregnant and the "nesting" phenomenon that almost all pregnant women experience. The garage sale we had planned motivated me earlier this week to clean out several drawers in the kitchen. The fact that there were very few customers in the early hours of the garage sale motivated me to keep going. My friend had called the day before and offered to help with the garage sale. Since, Steve had it under control, we charged ahead with organizing my Tupperware drawer. (Thanks, Lisa!) I did not stop there. One thing lead to another and I have been cleaning and organizing my house for the past 12 hours. Yes, I am definitely nesting.
However, tired as I am, as I sit down to write, I realize that I am not overly emotional, I am not coughing and all in all, I feel pretty good. Let's just hope that the experiment I threw in the oven to serve for dinner tonight (we are low on groceries) will not cause too much of a commotion and we will be all set!
