Pity Party is Officially over

I have decided that my pity party from last night is officially over. I had a wonderful last day at work and things are looking less "doom" like today. I can't worry about my kidneys right now. I can't worry about money, or my weight. All I can do right now is pray that things go well tomorrow and focus on healing and getting well. So that's what I am trying to do. Think calming, healing thoughts. I am not all that nervous(right now) about tomorrow. I know the drill(I've done it three times before), and I will be comfortable and safe and sound in the hospital for three days with no worries. Joe said he will sneak me in food if they won't let me eat anything(they are wierd about letting you eat after any type of abdominal surgery. I have been fine every time). Is it sad that my biggest concern is how soon they will let me eat after surgery? It's just that I was so, so hungry last time and they wouldn't give me anything and it had been almost twenty seven hours since I had last eaten and the first thing we did when they let me out was drive through Carl's Jr. Okay, it's still sad. Anyway, enough about that. Look what came in the mail today. The infamous Brown Envelope! I know it doesn't mean anyting if you don't get one, and I am not even sure what the signifigance of getting it is, but it came from China and it is the only thing we have received that is adopion related since our log in date, so I am excited about it. It's the little things that make me happy. Here is a hodge podge of pictures. One of me giving blood, and me with Mulan, Joe and me on the monorail, and the Brown envelope.

Congratulations on your brown envelope! That's always a cool, cool thing to get in the mail.

Now best of luck tomorrow, and I hope you're up and at 'em and enjoying that Carl's Jr in no time flat. ;-)

Congrats on the brown envelope Michelle. It is a very important part of your adoption and means you are indeed progressing. This little document will come into play later when you are in China. So keep it safe. :-)

Good luck today - I will be thinking of you and am wishing you a speedy recovery.
