For those of you don't know about my daughter's business http://www.lizziemariecuisine.com/, today marks her 4th year appearing at the Taste of Atlanta event where she is judging this year instead of cooking. I realized a couple of months ago, I would be in no condition to go with her because of my need to lay down every afternoon on a heating pad to try and relieve some of my back pain. Taste of Atlanta is a super fun event for our family and I am a bit bummed I'm home alone this afternoon. I'm confident Jeremy is taking some great shots of Lizzie at the event which I'll add to her website next week.
I talked with one of Dr. Lenke's patients who explained how she received her phone call with a cancellation opportunity to bump up her surgery date. I was a bit surprised to learn that her new surgery date was 1 1/2 weeks away from the day she received the phone call. I didn't realize dates could be moved up so quickly. We reached out to our dear friends and explained the situation how I'm on a cancellation list and regardless of when the surgery occurs (Aug 1 or sooner), could they help us by having Lizzie stay with them during my surgery. It was a HUGE relief to not only have them say yes, but to have a few plans in place now for when I need to go to St. Louis.
Rib pain is still at an elevated level this week, making sleeping and sitting a challenge. It's not good to literally lay around all day long, but it hurts so bad to just sit because of ribs pressing into pelvis. Oh well, I'll get through this.
