The Surgery is back on!
That's right. My husband called my doctor this morning and told them it was imperative I have my surgery before Christmas. It looks as though if he hadn't done this I would have been waiting until after the new year. Yet another reason why I love him so. My surgery has been scheduled for Wednesday, December 14th at 2:00. I don't know why they always schedule so late in the day. I'm forbidden from eating anything from 10:00 p.m. the night before. Last time my surgery was delayed three and a half hours, so I was absolutely starving by the time they put me out. I wouldn't be surprised if my stomach was growling during the surgery! They gave me a turkey sandwich when I woke up(because I had to spend the night) and I swear it was the best sandwich I had ever tasted, that's how hungry I was! I have to admit I'm a little bit nervous. Although I have had a laparoscopy two times before, I have never had my nerves cut. It's a little bit unnerving Ha Ha! Pun intended! The good thing is that I go on Christmas vacation on the following Wednesday, the 21st. So I'll simply take an extra week off and we'll head up to my sister's as planned on the 23rd. That means I will have a total of three weeks off. Woo Hoo! I should be rested and ready to go back to work on January 5th, which is my birthday. It's hard to believe I am sitting here writing about Christmas. Wasn't Summer just a few weeks ago? It seems like it!
