Finishing Up Loose Ends

I am going to try and get all my Christmas shopping done tomorrow. I am only shopping for my daughter this year. It is a very tight Christmas this year. I also want to wrap the gifts I bought for her on line tomorrow also.
Oh, I forgot to tell everyone that my surgery is on Tuesday the 16th at 12:45 pm. I have been running around getting more blood work done and also had to have a CT sinus scan. I went to see my doctor to get a physical. He also said I should be getting a call to go have a EKG. I told him my surgery is in 5 days and what is taking them so long to call me. I wanted to have all this done by tomorrow. Oh well I guess I will be waiting by the phone for a little while tomorrow.
My sister and her family have decided to come out after I get out of the hospital. I think that makes more sense because I am going to be in the hospital anywhere between 3 to 6 days. I think she is going to spend Christmas with us. It all depends on how I am feeling after I get out of the hospital. I haven't seen my sister in about a year and a half. I try to get out to see her every summer in Tennessee but money has been tight.
I have a long list of things I want to get done before I leave for the hospital. I want my house to be all cleaned and ready for when my family comes. My hubby took a weeks vacation starting tomorrow. They would not let him split it up. I told him it would make more sense for him to start his vacation on Tuesday but the company would not let him. His days off are Friday and Saturday and told him he had to start his vacation on Sunday. I guess I should just be happy that he got the time off.
Well my eyes are getting tired and I am going to relax and wait for my Chicago Bears to play today. Have a fabulous evening everyone.

If I lived near you I would come help you clean and wrap your presents. But I don't so I will just be here thinking about you and praying for you. Don't worry things will go well and the EKG can be done in the Drs office and you get instant results. Take care

I'm glad you have family coming to help after the surgery.
