Boy, that was quick

Tomorrow Bill & I are leaving to spend the night at my mom's as I got my appointment to "drain" this fluid build up and it is at 8:30 in the morning onWednesday. That would mean being on the road by 6:15 in order to get there just in time if we were to stay at home tomorrow night. I am not THAT much of a morning person, if at all.

I have to admit that I am experiencing conflicting feelings about this "procedure". I can't wait to not have headaches everyday but...I am so darn nerved up about that needle and the act of draining fluid. I am envisioning it to be similar to a reverse epidural but I guess I will see Wednesday if I am correct.

Depending on how I feel after this procedure we will be leaving to visit Billy and Natalie for a few days and all our friends down there. I am excited about this part of the week for sure. We'll be stopping at the music store and checking out ride and splash cymbals. Apparently Bill is also wanting to see if he can find me hot pink drum sticks...ah, okay....

So, I have a request, if you happen to be thinking of it at 8:30 or so (procedure starts at 9:00) maybe send up a quick prayer that all goes well oh, and that I don't embarass myself by passing out when I see the needle...

We will be praying for you. I hope it goes well and that you can enjoy your trip.

The other thing you can look for are "hotrods" -- you know those drum sticks made of a bunch of little sticks put together. They are good for church b/c they are quieter (but you're a girl, so you're physically able to play quietly...). :) They're pretty expensive up here ($30 usually). So, if you see them for a good price, they'd be good to get.
