I think the stress is getting to all of us. Angie had a school play last week where she was the prop master. Several of the stage hands did not show up and she ended up doing more work than she should have. Of course this didn't help her back at all. She missed school on Friday (luckily all her finals were completed) and had a massage therapy session to ease the pain. We have one more massage session scheduled for Friday to try and make her relaxed over the weekend.
Angie has been having some problems sleeping recently. I'm not sure if she will admit it but I think the thought of the pending surgery is weighing heavily on her mind. I know that it's affecting my sleep and ability to focus at work. We're doing everything we can to help her through these remaining days.
Recently I've had to play the bad guy and get on her case about her general health. It's been a bit cold and rainy recently, which is the type of weather Angie loves. I keep having to remind her to stay dry and warm so she doesn't get a cold or congestion. Even something as simple as a cold could delay her surgery, and we don't want that.
