Hi Jo.

I kept busy doing lots of fun things, both with my kids and husband and friends. We actually drove to Florida and went to visit my brother and DisneyWiorld three weeks before my surgery;  I was lucky enough to get together with a few people from this forum a little less than a week before my surgery; my friends also kept me busy shopping and going out to lunch; cleaning the house was also great for keeping busy and burning excess energy.  I'd just crank up stereo and go like a fiend.  The house looked better than it had in a long time by the time the day of my surgery arrived.  I have to agree with Lori, I don't want to do this anymore, I have better ways to spend my time.   ;D ;D ;D

JB,
  Good luck with your impending AN treatment.  I remember well the last week before surgery.  It's hard for your thoughts to be on anything else for long.  I agree with the others that diversion is good.  Do some of those things that you've been putting off-- like going to your favorite restaurant.  I also remember that time seemed to accelerate the last few days before surgery-- I guess I was resigned to the need for treatment, but really couldn't believe how soon it arrived.
  You'll soon be a postee, and on the way to recovery.
Regards,
  Rob
