Surgery is Booked for Wednesday

I get my port on Wednesday. It is an out patient surgery and I don't even have to go under! I am awake the whole time but they will give me stuff that will make it so I cannot remember the whole day. It has an amnesic effect...I have no idea how to spell that! They do local anesthesia and cover my port completely with skin. No one will ever know! I am kinda excited and kinda scared. It means no more needles for the infusion and possibly blood and no more needles for my MRI for sure! Hope all goes well. I am rather excited for tonight. Goo Goo Dolls concert and the temple! It is going to be a busy night and I barely got sleep. I hope I make it.

Have a happy productive Saturday!

THE CREATION OF A BEAUTIFUL LIFE said...

I came across your blog (from the link from the Sadie Huish family blog)... And have been reading through your blog the past few days. Thank you for being such a wonderful role model in your overall life and practicing your life with such personal resiliency. I will keep you in my payers. God bless you!

Tara, (and the entire Schlappi family) HELLO! I'm not sure how many of you remember me and the Button family, but we all sure do remember you guys. Everyone once in a while one of us will bring up "Schlappi socks" (we say that because your brothers were notorious for having their socks only halfway on, running around like crazy animals trying to wrestle me every five minutes!) And just two days ago I was talking about you Tara, and the time you broke your leg under my care. You were such an amazing trooper for such a tiny little girl, and it appears you are still the same willful spirit if not more so.

I can't imagine what this has been like for you, but I am in awe of your determination and positive attitude! We could all learn from your example :)

AND I CAN NOT BELIEVE YOU BEAT ME DOWN THE ISLE!!!!!!!!!!! Of course if I were as GORGEOUS as you are maybe I would have been married 10 years ago ;) Luckily it wont be long, I am due to be wed Oct 1st. Please tell the family I said hello and I will keep you in my prayers.

Love Kara Button (Soon to be Kara Button Young)

This is Becky - how do I contact you? I tried to click on your name and it wouldn't let me talk to you. Email me your email address. Mine is beckyschlappi@cox.net. It is so awesome to hear from you! Of course we remember you!! Are you really 10 years older than Tara? Can it have been that long since we did piano lessons in KY??? Your family were the greatest friends ever! We will never forget that broken leg experience....

Hope you read this....

Tara, good luck on Wed. I'm sure everything will go exceptionally well as it sounds like it has been going all along. We think of you often here at the Jones household and at work as well. If you get a minute and are feeling good stop by and see us. I know you are busy with life. I miss chatting with ya and hope to hear from you soon. Again, so glad to hear that all is going well. Love, Misha. ; )
