Arm update, episode xvii  
Today I am doing last minute cooking in prep for my surgery, which is scheduled this Wednesday.

The veggie chili is in the slow cooker and a big vat of light, brothy vegetable soup is on the stove. Our house smells heavenly to say the least.
In the freezer I have ziploc bags of various soups, all 1-2 servings and labeled for easy meals.
It will be tricky to have one arm and anything I can do now to make life easier would rock. I also have a bit of laundry to do.
Tomorrow we are having the house cleaned; it will be nice to heal in a clean house.
I have yet to pick up my 4 rx- painkillers, antibiotic, anti-nausea, as well as some acidophilus pills, some ginger ale and saltines.
I'm excited and scared about the surgery- it's minor, outpatient procedure that should take 45 min, though there will be anaesthesia.
They're going to suck out the excess scar tissue in my ulna that has been so painful and debilitating.

I am hopeful of three things:
1. That the surgery goes well without complications (It should)
2. That the restaurant holds up their end and pays for everything!!
3. That the healing process is speedy and a success- I can't wait to get on with my life

So I'll be reading eljay but not likely updating a lot- one handed typing takes a long time.
Hold a good thought for me, and hope everyone is well..

and I'll catch ya on the flip-side. I may update with the time of the surgery, jsyk.
