And the Surgery will...........

Monday, February 28, 2011

Well, I did get THE call today and I will be going under the knife today at 12:30pm Eastern time tomorrow Tuesday March 1st. That's pretty much bang in the middle of the day.

I had a pretty hectic day with all the last minute stuff and am almost done planning and going over it all. Ah - the stress.

So here's my plan for the next few days: I planned everything, made lists, charts and schedules. Lol. I'm funny like that, but it's the only way I can get a tad bit of control (or feel like I do).

Tomorrow March 1st.
-No food after midnight, and only 2 cups of H2O or clear liquid between midnight and surgery (for 12 hours!!!)
-Leaving home at 9:30am, going by the bank and arriving at the Hospital for 10:30am as requested...
-BF will stay with me until I get wheeled in
-Surgery at 12:30. Argh!
-BF and Mom will visit between 7 and 7:30 pm and get the low-down on how everything went.
-I'm staying over for the night

Wednesday March 2nd
-BF will pick me up at 6:30 am. Pretty early to be discharged. Lol
-Mom will spend am with us and will probably drop by in evening too

I will be really really high on meds (I better be) and laying flat on my back for a few days after this with the right to do minimal walking and sit for 2-3 times a day for no more than 20 minutes. I hope I don't get too bored!

I'm afraid. Really, I am. And I hate that some people tell me not to be. I will also be missing all of you and will touch base asap, even if it's just to come update my ststus and tell you all I'm ok!

I'm focusing on the recovery, imagining myself getting better and better, through hard work and pacing myself. Going back to work. Becoming more and more active again. Happy. Pain free!
