I am seriously freaking out because I have a surgery date and it's a little less than 3 weeks away. I'm not ready for the pain (have to have an abdominal surgery) or the recovery period among other things.
I don't have as much energy as I would normally due to the loss of blood for so long, but at least I do have some energy. I managed to clean out my freezer (side-by-side fridge, not a deep freeze) yesterday to see what was in there as well as organize it and throw out any freezer-burned items.
I at least have an idea of what is hiding in there and realize that I don't need to purchase any meat items until I use up a good bit of what I have already. The freezer is so small so my purchases have to be something that are going to be used right away vs. long-term storage.
The other day I cleaned out my fridge and organized it as well, so at least I'm getting some things done. I used plenty of anti-bacterial spray and it was definitely a much needed chore.
I am taking time away from our homeschool group (that I co-own) and have let every one know that I am having to get things done that I have neglected for a long time due to feeling bad for so long. I have to get my house in order before this surgery since I know things will be neglected for a long time in my recovery.
I'm also, unfortunately, waiting on test results I had done earlier this week regarding my thyroid results as well as the biopsy I had done to see if I have cancer since they found a mass on one of my ovaries.
This is going to be a long wait for me as I am scared to death of so many things. If there is cancer involved, the surgery I have scheduled would have to be cancelled and I will have to see a specialist.
I called my hairdresser to get my hair done before my surgery since I know I won't be able to deal with having it done for a very long time. Today I am going to attempt to clean my bathroom thoroughly. I know I have to pace myself since I am probably still anemic although I have increased my iron intake recently, but things have to be done and I can't rest knowing they need to be done after so much neglect.
I will be stuck being bored and not able to do my normal routine, so at least want certain things to be organized and clean while I'm bored and recovering.
I am trying to do small things every day if possible and not wear myself out by doing too much. I want to clean my bedroom next (will probably wait until the weekend or Monday) as I will be seeing a lot of it after surgery.
