In an hour or so I'm going to take one of these baby aspirin, now known as low dose aspirin. I'm not going to eat after midnight and at 4:45 a.m. I am scheduled to depart for my rendezvous with titanium at NYU Hospital. My right hip will be replaced and, beginning Monday, I will be known as Titanium Woman, aka Buttercup to my friends and family.
Am I worried? Not so much worried, but rather a kind of general free-floating low-grade anxiety. I have every confidence in the hospital and in my surgeon, with over 30 years of experience. I am grateful for so many who are planning to visit, to bring me iced coffee and any other treats I may request and everyone who has called and texted. But it's surgery and I am not looking forward to the week ahead.
I hope/think I will be home on Wednesday and I'm planning a post to say hello by the end of this week, if not Thursday Thanks in advance for prayers, healing thoughts and good wishes.
I'm joining with my Pink Saturday friends today. New York was blessed with good weather for January this week and I had some great walks. This is one of my favorite pictures, a semi-selfie in front of our local yarn shop, Knitty City.
Wishes for Peace, Love and Fiber!
