Tentative Dates

Pending referrals etc., the tentative dates so far are 8/2 to start tests, with surgery here on 8/7. That sure seems fast! With the holiday week, not much is open around here, so we start in earnest on Wednesday to get all the insurance stuff lined up.

And then Jeremy shows up on Thursday! I can’t wait.

Things I never thought I’d google: how to prepare for brain surgery

I am learning some stuff, though, making lists.

Slide shows of familiar faces: check. (22K images on Flickr should do the trick) (on my Kindle)

Music without words: check (I have a Pandora station that I used to cook to that I love.)

Figure out where I’ll be recovering and get it all set up. Not sure on this one yet. I will most likely need home health care for a bit, so need to arrange that.

Get some audio books downloaded onto my Kindle, because reading won’t be possible for a while I hear. I’ve only read the first Phryne Fisher — I wonder if the rest is on Audible? Love to take suggestions. I’ve asked Frank to send some DVDs of Jeeves and Bertie Wooster and what we have of Lord Peter Wimsey.

Games I like to play while we wait for surgery: Aggravation, Qwirkle, Pinochle deck

Maybe Crochet.

I wish there was a way to get Frank and the puppies to Oregon. I’m scared to death I won’t wake up, and they’d be so sad to never have seen me again.

Do I know anyone who would be willing to dye a Tilley hat purple if I buy it? I’m pretty sure I need one, and why they haven’t made one yet is beyond comprehension.

I hear I am going to be even more light sensitive for a long while, and since I often wear my sunglasses inside already, that’s going to be interesting.

Does anyone know much about the Glitch reboots? That would be a happy thing to play during recovery.

So many of you are asking for a wishlist, so I’ve been madly clicking on things on Amazon. But seriously, please don’t send anything until I wake up from surgery. Many people don’t. When I do, I will happily spray purple glitter on thank you notes whenever I am up to mischief.

  1. I am so happy to hear this! Do you have in-person support in OR? Harmony, I assume? It’s a quick drive for me. Let me know if we can help arrange such a thing.

  2. I will be thinking of you on the 8th and holding my breath till I hear some sort of news from you……..

    wishing you the very best and a quick recovery!!

  3. Hey Lisa,
    I will let Cindy and them know the date you’re having surgery. All of them will be praying for You. I know in my heart you will be Ok. Our Lord is so powerful and he brought your Dr. To you when more said can’t be done. Keep your faith. God Bless You. I will pray for a full recovery.

  4. Lisa,

    I’d be surprised if the Phryne Fisher Mysteries weren’t on Audible. The television episodes were a smash hit, and the book still sell strong.

  5. Glad you’ve got a doc and a date! I’d dye the Tilley hat for you, but all the cotton/hemp hats appear to be treated for water resistance. I’m afraid it wouldn’t work, alas. Hugs!
