Easy peasy Covid test and the end of Camp Quarantine

I forgot to mention that our son gifted us a walnut tray with brass inlays and handles on the sides that he made. He is quite the quality woodworker as a hobby.

I had my Covid pre-op test on Tuesday and it was very easy. Drive in at the hospital emergency room parking lot, 5 second swab in each nostril, receive pre-op shower kit and head home. 

I've been getting the house clean, picked up my knee scooter and practiced getting into the house & bathroom. Loaded up my Kindle with distraction novels. Got the pain killer prescription filled, etc. We are as ready as we can be.

There is research that shows the more you know what to expect with surgery or an illness the better you cope with the negative parts and the faster you get better. Also research that show that being realistic leads to greater happiness. Hoping this proves true! Will find out after the surgery on Friday morning.

See you on the other side.


  1. Good lukc, may all go easy and well. Nice tray table.

  2. What a gorgeous tray!

    I hope the surgery goes smoothly and all is well.

    God bless.

  3. Such great craftsmanship on the tray from your son. Best wishes for a successful surgery!

  4. I hope it all goes well and you're home resting in no time. The table is lovely. Talented son.

  5. I agree the better you know about what is going to happen during all parts of surgery, the better things will be & sounds like you have well prepared yourself. All will be good!

  6. Happy thoughts and healing wishes coming to you!

  7. You are so organized. I wish you a successful surgery and easy recovery.
