Surgery Day tomorrow

I’m finally letting everyone know that I am having surgery tomorrow.

Having quite a few things fixed and done. They are estimating a 4.5 hour surgery – have to get to the hospital tomorrow at 9:30am.

So, I’m having some food now before I have to be NPO after midnight. Watching some Amish Mafia. Finishing a load of laundry. Getting my stuff together. Will take a shower and then I will “try” to go to bed without having too much anxiety and insomnia. LOL

So the quest to look younger begins!

And it should have begun a long time ago.

I just turned 37. I don’t like the way I look in the mirror. My skin is starting to look ragged. I want to look 27 again, or at least slow the aging process and repair my skin discolorations and spots, and finally get rid of my *gasp* adult acne, shrink my pores, etc, etc! I wanna hold off on botox and fillers, but if you told me I could have some free botox tomorrow, I’d be there! (vain much? – you bet… I’ll admit it)

Thus I begin my journey with Retin-A (tretinoin) tonight. I need to take before pictures tomorrow and maybe weekly thereafter. I have to see for myself how this works. And I do have all the faith in the world that this will work very nicely. I’m just curious how long it will take, what the end result will be and will it prevent me from getting wrinkles, or at least slow down the process.

So, here’s to some Retin-A fun! I’m excited!

If anyone had or has any experience with Retin-A, give me a shout and let me know what your experience was or is like?

Fatigue should be my middle name…

But I do like Anna, which is my real middle name. Hehe.

I just can’t win, especially at the end of a 28 day cycle (no, not that kind of cycle). My medication cycle, which I get every 28 days. I can feel nearly a week ahead of my scheduled infusion that my body is jonesing for my meds.

So, I did go to bed early yesterday like I planned. Yay! However, it took me a bit longer than I wanted to fall asleep. I remember looking at the clock and it said midnight – 40 minutes after I laid my tired head down on my pillow. It was a great sleep though, but I definitely do not feel well rested. Ugh. Fatigue is still plaguing me – thus I am trying to wake up with some coffee as I sit here in the upstairs viewing area this morning of Al’s gymnastics class.

Maybe if I make it a trend to go to bed earlier, it will make a difference. But this Monday, after my medication I should be good to go by Tuesday afternoon.
