The Night Before!!
Feb 08, 2010It is 7:33pm and in 10 1/2 hours I'll be at the hospital getting ready for my surgery!! Where did the time go??? I remember when the weekend before surgery was my focal point and now.. well.. getting thru the night is my focal point. My daughter brought our grandbabies down to visit and then took them to her dad's house to stay and she is spending the night here with my husband and I. All three of us... sitting here on our own computers... what a site!! We don't even bother to have the TV on...lol. Am I nervous? Not really yet. I am soooo tired because I have been having so many dreams the last 3 nights and not able to sleep well that I am hoping that tonight will be "my" night. I have to get up at 4:30a in order to be at the hospital at 6:00a. My surgery is scheduled at 7:30a, but prep time is required so....
It's unbelievable, the support that I have. I feel like the president or something..lol. My wonderful husband leaves me no worries as to whether when we grow old who will be the main caretakers for us (he will). I can't begin to find enough words to explain how much I love him. He's given me so much in such little time together. ANY woman would find he is a jewel. But don't worry, he's not up for grabs!!! As long as there is breath in this body, HE'S MINE! lol......
Online support has been great too!! My bariatric buddies...my compadres...my siblings in weight rivilry. They have been awesome!! Now, my daughter.. I know she wants to be support, but I think she is letting the surgery thing get to her. She's a worry-wart. Wonder where she got that from? She told me the other day, "I am the one used to being on the table, not having you on there". I told her.. you know where you got your strength and will to live from?? : )
Welp, I guess this is enough for tonight. I've got my bags packed and I should re-run over instructions and such to make sure I am ready. Till another time.
