Big time error on Duke's part

So, I called today to see when my sinus surgery is scheduled, since I haven't heard anything from them. The lady at my ENT's office paused after I told her my name and why I was calling. She said "Oh no, I have you down for the surgery today!!!" I was like "WHAT???" She said, "yeah, we thought you were still in the hospital and have you scheduled for surgery today." I actually remained very calm!!! :) After working this little "error" out, she said she'd call me with the surgery date soon. I made sure to remind her that I need it before I go off of these IV's, so that I will be covered with antibiotics at the time of transplant, and that I didn't want to have to go through desensitization again. She said she got it, and will get in touch with me about a date.

It was a lazy weekend. I have had bad GI problems on these IV's. It's been a long time since I've been on a cephalosporin, and I forgot what they did to me. I've lost some weight, but actually ate pretty good today, so I'm sure I'll gain it back.

Casey took me makeup shopping today. She's trying to transform me. I hate to tell her this, but you can't do much to get that youthful look back shy of plastic surgery. We did wind up getting some really good things though. Let's see if they work now. haha!

Hope all is well with everyone in the blogging world!

Wow, I bet you were surprised to hear your surgery was TODAY! I hope it's scheduled soon, tho.

I'm sorry that the abx are giving you GI problems. You don't need that.

When I was reading about your daughter and you said "I hate to tell her" I thought you were going to say "you can't improve perfection!"

Oh, how did you stay calm?? I'm so impressed by you! I know it's a huge bummer, and I'm so sorry the meds are upsetting your system. I'm going to pray this surgery is very soon!

Sheesh! It's sort of comical, after the anger wears off! LOL! Sometimes all you can do is laugh because of glitches in the system. I hope you find out your date soon
