Feeling Hopeful

I still don't know 100% if my surgery is going to happen on Wednesday, but I am much more hopeful than I was yesterday.

The Cardiologist called this afternoon and said that she, the ortho doc and the anesthesiologist are putting their heads together to come up with a plan of action to get this surgery done. It sounded much better than what she had said last Friday.  I've been praying about this for several days and I am feeling hopeful and less burdened mentally.  

The electricity was out for most of the afternoon and when that happens,  you really get a feel for how attached you are to your TV and computers.  I felt lost.  Isn't that terrible?  Haha  I didn't know what to do with myself for a bit.  So, I wandered around the house tidying up and "detailing" my surroundings.  Adjusting pictures and knick-knacks.  Putting away the clothes I managed to get washed and dried before the power went out and moving some things around.  I felt good after that.  

I have a chair in my family room that I put in front of the sliding glass door during the winter.  During the spring and summer, it sits with the back facing the fireplace.  Just moving that one chair makes the room feel new and fresh again.  I find that when I get bored with my surroundings, I just move things around and it's like having a whole new room.

I bought myself a very nice Samsung gas stove a few months ago and was so grateful to have it today, because I could still get my dinner cooked by lighting it with a match,  since the electronic ignition relies on electricity.  I really love cooking on a gas stove as opposed to electric.  I get more even cooking and things don't tend to boil over like they do on an electric stove.  I adore that stove!

Hopefully I'll have good news to post about tomorrow!
