Sonja, I'm retired too! 28 years of teaching elementary school and eventually working as a public school early childhood administrator. I'm so glad -- I really would have hated to go back after this surgery! Probably getting lazy in my old age.
Take care of yourself this weekend and please let us know how the procedure goes. Hugs,
They sent me home well to Mom's house which is 3 1.2 hours away from Austin. We stopped every hour as directed, ate lunch, shopped Walmart etc. I am taking it easy!
The newfound freedom to be able to walk as far as I want is amazing; considering I had gotten to the point that I was gasping between breaths!
