Well, tomorrow is the big day.
It's finally arrived after a whole year in the making.
How am I feeling? Grateful to have this opportunity. Curious about the future. Excited to be moving forward. Perhaps a little tiny bit nervous, just because I know it's going to hurt when I wake up. All in all, I'm feeling pretty laid back and ready to go. I'm certainly feeling the loss of my protein shakes today, being on the only-clearliquids-day-before-surgery diet part.... I'm hungry and very tired, but I found some delight in having a cup of apple juice!
My ship sets sail tomorrow and I'm excited to experience this journey and see where it takes me. I feel that I have made the best decision for myself and I hope I remember that when people start saying things, and I am sure they will. I still don't know who I am going to tell, if anybody else. My husband, mother-n-law, best friend, and my mother are the only people I've told, and I may just decide to keep it that way. A "don't ask, don't tell" kind of thing. I hope that I can heal up quickly and without issue and move on to whatever comes next. I can't believe how helpful this site has been and I anticipate will continue to be in the future! So much help and real information and it's free! I am glad I took the chance and started here.
Signing off until after the surgery!
