feedback from pre op check up

Wednesday, June 18, 2014

today had my pre op check up and as discussed with my dr did not mention my shoulder.my cpr levels are still high so there is an infection still somewhere but we don´t know .they agreed to operate but i had to sign an extra document saying i know there is a higher infection risk because of the cpr.the narkose dr said they are implanting this stunt thing in my vien in my wrist and leg that will take my blood pressure with every heart beat(they will be doing this after they have knocked me out)they will also be laying a zugang(iv access)in the vien in my neck and also will be laying an incubation tube in before they start the op as in the last couple of op i have had problems breathing so this is a safety percorsion.i have put my niece down as contact person as lotfi is out of the country.i will also be giving her one of my spark friends susie(thank you susie)email address so she will let susie know how the op etc went and then susie will post on my spark page probably in a blog or on my status how it went.i just have to remember tomorrow night to sign out of spark people so she can access my account.i wont be taking my laptop with me as lotfi wants me to rest in hospital but will be taking it to rehab so will probably be away from computer for 10-14 days depending how it all goes.i will be taking my mobile phone with me so lotfi can contact me etc.they have also decided to change the protese to a differant one than they were going to use before.it wont effect me any difinately than the original planed one put apperantly the one they are planning to put in will be more robust(i wonder if that means i an eventually run again,fingers crossed)my SIL things i am daft getting it done with the cpr being high but i have had 22 op in the last 5 years and of them 22 ops 5 were emergency ops where my cpr were alot higher than they are now.and i am still here.i am a firm believer that our lives are written before we are born and so are our deaths pre written and if it is written that i die on any given day i would regaurdles of weather i operate or not.it is this belief that gives me the strength to get through all my ops that i have and this belief that keeps me going on the rough days.the thought of eventuially being painfree is so freeing and i can´t wait to do things i am limited to do at the moment.to be more active for my kids to not have to hide the fact i am in pain so they don´t get scared.to be pain free is something i have been dreaming off for along time and to think it is actually in my grasp,lol.the dr have warned the op could still be cancelled if an emergancy came in etc.my answer was cancell someone else op instead mine has already been cancells 5 times this time it is going to happen as i don´t know if i have strength to build myself up for another op.having said that they want to do another op on my viens after this lol.so i am to take my last blood thinner 10 pm tonight and after the op i will be going on injections for a while till they decide which bloodthinners i am to go back on because of the other op.i can eat and drink what i want till midnight tomorrow and can drink water till 6 am on friday.they said my niece can ring to see how the op went 2 pm and should be able to have visitors after 4pm on op day if all goes well.so prayers etc that all goes well this time.this will probably be last blog for a while as i said as i will have no computer access after tomorrow night.thank once again for all your support through this as there have been times i have vented and been down but you all have lifted me up and carried me through.i honestly don´t know what i would have done without all your support.T H A N K Y O U

take care and keep smiling,love karen.

    Karen, I don't recall ever really hearing you complain, and talk about encouragers, you are always trying to encourage others...I know because I have been on the receiving end of your kind heart.
    I will pray for you and look forward to hearing updates on your recovery.
    Take time to take care of yourself!
