My chariot awaits........

I feel like I should be saying something very prolific. But, the most I could come up with was the title of this post. And, even then, it's not entirely true. My chariot does not await me. My chariot has not even arrived. When it does....I'll be riding off into the sunset. Not true....again. Just another attempt at being prolific. There will be no sunset to ride off into. It's 4:45 am and dreary. So much for stealing someone else's lines. And, they aren't great lines as it is. If I was going to quote something great to give this moment some "umph", you'd think I'd pilfer one of great literary worth. But, all I can come with are silly ones that aren't even true. Perhaps that's what it means to be lost for words. It's not something that I experience quite often. Oh sure, there's lots of thoughts swirling through my head right now. Given my penchant for clothes and shoes and all things materialistic.....you'd think I'd be fantisizing about my first shopping trip where I don't have to settle for something that resembles a moo-moo but the fabric is pretty. Yet, the closest thought I've had about clothes in the past 45 minutes is if it's stupid of me to wear white to the hospital.....will there be blood?
So, here's what's happening....the highlights only. My surgery is at 7:30. I have to be there at 5:45. My sister Denise is picking me up (she is my chariot driver, I guess). I am wearing a pair of pink rubber clog type shoes (the real name of them escapes me right now) that were hand painted by someone at the beach. When I saw them, I thought they would be great for the hospital....they would make me smile. Oh, and I bought these little things that you plug into the holes of the shoes--a strawberry and a butterfly. Again...for smiles only. Typically, these shoes would not make it within 500 feet of my shoe collection. I don't want anyone thinking that these are standard Judi shoes. Here again....a conumdrum. You'd think I'd wear a pair of amazing shoes. It's a pretty confusing morning. So, I guess whatever makes me smile will just have to do......

SO did ya wear white? ; ) I'll bet those pink shoes look terrific with your hospital gown. Keep smiling, Judi. We love you lots!

Hi Judi. Sending you warm wishes for a quick recovery. I love the idea of you wearing pink clogs/crocs just because they make you smile. I cannot wait to hear more about your journey. You are a strong woman.
