Not Knowing What to Expect

We've had another full week. Japanese classes - playing with Maximo - dealing with a temperamental Mother Nature (Rainy Season).

John mowing our lawn with his newly purchased "mower".

Maximo is getting the poopy bit down better.
The Pirate Potty book seems to help.
And he loves getting his special stickers when he poops in the potty.
"Look Mommy, Daddy! Big Poopy!"

In a couple of hours I check into the hospital. I'm a bit anxious. I've read maybe too much on the internet and really just want to get through the next 48 hours. I have NO idea what to expect at the hospital, I know what is going to happen with my surgery, but not the rest.

I'm sure I'll forget to take my shoes off in the wrong place and will be the awkward gaijin on the floor. It adds a whole new level to staying in the hospital when I probably won't be able to communicate with any of the nurses and staff there, besides my doctor.

I'll be in the hospital for the week to recover. Hopefully all will go well. I'll keep you all posted.
