8 hours & Counting until I'm Thyroid Free & I'll probably feel like a Mac Truck ran over me...

Middle of the night greetings ...well my friends I've finally made it to Surgery day..I'm down to 8 hours before I'm Thyroid Free...part of me is excited that the waiting is finally over with and part of me is a nervous wreck...Part of me can't wait to see if I'm actually going to feel like a normal human being again...and then there is part of me that is scared to death that this won't fix a thing...and I'll still feel horrible
Now ya want to talk about a bundle of emotions all thrown into one mind...and no food or drink is allowed ...Now how does one deal with all those emotions without something to snack on and a drink to wash it down...LOL...they get on there blog and ramble...
Tried to go to sleep but that didn't here I am rambling...

I'm tickled to death because the last thing I did on my list was finish making my Herb Garden bigger. I wasn't sure I would getit done..but late this afternoon I made it out there to work on the dirt pile we made before it stormed and turned it to mud.. I had to dig out all the grass and weed before I could start..Once I had all that cleand out I laid down newspaper and then black mesh to make sure I killed any weeds taht might think they are gona come up and mess up my garden...Then I raked the dirt pile, got all the stones, sticks and any weeds out of my top soil..then I filled the newest part of the garden with some nice rich dirt...and got it all levered out..
Now once I feel good enough to get outside after surgery I can go out there and start planting more herbs.
With the added new section I now have and L shaped garden. It's now 15 ft long x 4 feet deep on the side of the shop. the new sectionis about 6 feet long. Plenty of room to plant more Herbs.. Every single one of my Herbs came back this year and are pretty and green already..So I'll have lots of herbs for my gatherings.. that's going to be so exciting to add more Herbs and have more choices to use in my gatherings.

This is kinda funny but as many of you know sales are down this year for all of us..and tho I've been selling regularly its generally only been 3 or 4 gatherings a week verses 15 to 20 in the past...on ebay.
Well the week that it would be best that I don't sell many gatherings is this week with surgery and recovery and me not knowing how I will be feeling by Sunday my packing day...Waht happens but I sell 8 gatherings and have bids on 4 more.. Hum... I'm happy as all get out for the great  sales but I'm not so happy about having so much to pack on Sunday..sure hope I'm feeling good by then...

Awwww.. finally I'm relazed and feeling sleepy... so before I go.. I want to say Thank you to all of you who have been so supportive and sent up prayers for my upcoming surgery and recovery. You have all been wonderful, your encouragement has kept me above water so to speak and given me the strength to keep going. God Bless you all...!

Felicia is going to let everyone know how I am doing tomorrow so check her blog later tomorrow for any updates...

Good night my Friends and I will be back soon!
