Hi Cathy,
Just now reading this thread. A very belated Welcome ;)
Your surgery will be here before you know it, just stay focused and busy.
How bout some holiday shopping/wrapping to add stress, I mean stay focused!
Also try to walk, exercise more, if you exercise. It's important to be in good physical shape. That will help greatly with your recovery.
It'll be OK. You go to sleep, you wake up. Your loved ones have the hard part of waiting.....
