October 7, 2008 ~~ ON THIS DAY MY NEW LIFE BEGINS!
Oct 06, 2008
It is the morning of my surgery. I am getting ready and still packing at this last minute since work has been so swamped. I am excited. I am soooo freaking thirsty because I had my "broth" last night since I was starving. Now after having soooo much broth, which is like drinking salt mind you, I am actually dying for water and I know I can't drink any without complications with general anesthesia. My husband is no support in this process and I really don't have anyone upbeat around me (from my personal friends/family). I am very sleepy so that is sort of helping me also, in not being too anxious. My surgery was originally scheduled for 8:30 a.m. Yesterday they called and said I was to arrive at the hospital at 11:00 a.m. I was kind of put off because everyone has know for weeks about the date and time and now I had to shift everyone. When I called the dr's office to find out why, the office manager was quite snotty with me. I was told there were 2 slots a day, both by them and by other patients. There was 6:00 or 8:30. So when I was surprised to get 11:00, I don't think that should have been so strange. I think I offended my doctor when I asked him about his fatality record and I get the feeling he doesn't like me very much. Oh well, all that matters is that he is an excellent, superior, astute surgeon, I guess. It's funny though because I chose this doctor because of his bedside manner. I put my six-year old on the bus today and when I got inside I thought, "Oh my God, what if that is the last time she ever sees me and she didn't even realize it!" I do have the fear of dying although I try to think positively. I am my own boss so if I am not at the office, I don't get paid. Because of this, I can't stay away very long from work. I do have a very competent assistant but still I am the one the clients want. I am starting to fall asleep as I am writing this and I still have to pack so I am going to run...see you on the other side...make room for me on the loser's bench!!! :-)
