A Mixture of Emotions

Didn't sleep well last night, up before dawn.  Today I have my gall bladder removed.  I have been on an emotional rollercoaster the last few weeks. 
It actually started about 3 weeks ago.  I was supposed to have some teeth surgically removed.  I went to my appointment and they hooked me up to do my blood pressure.  They ended up doing about 6 readings because none were under 200/130.  Needless to say, they did not pull my teeth and told me to call my doctor.  This was on a Friday.  I called my doctor and went to see him Monday.  He immediately sent me to the E.R. where they did some tests, gave me some meds and kept me for 6 hours.  Apparently, they didn't find anything in the tests because I never got a phone call.  so, as of right now, we have no idea of what is causing my blood pressure to be so high.  I have a follow up with my Dr. on the 15th.
This past week, I have been super nervous about my blood pressure.  Not sure if the medicine is working.  Also a little nervous about the surgery and feeling a little guilty because they scheduled it the day before my daughter's baby shower which I will not be able to attend now.  I would have had them do it another time but that would have meant waiting another month and I have been dealing with this since Christmas.  Needless to say, I am sick and tired of being sick and tired.

Upcoming Events

This week is going to be spent getting the house ready and food made for our Memorial Day party.
On May 31 I will be having my gall bladder removed so my Etsy shops will be in vacation mode for a while. I will not be able to lift or be on my feet for long periods of time.  On June 1st is my daughters baby shower.  One June 15 is my other daughters baby shower.  Then there is Father's Day.  I am so glad that after 5 years in a row, we have no children graduating. 
What are your plans for Memorial Day?
Well, if I am not here for the rest of the week, I would like to wish you all a happy and safe Memorial Day Weekend.
