Back from Pre-Op Appt.

Hey Ladies,

Well, went to get all my test done for surgery today. Got 4 valves of blood taken, pee-pee in a cupie.... That was it. In and out in 1 hour flat. Was glad that part was over. Now, Monday will surely come in a hurry. Told to take a WHOLE bottle of "poision" starting at 4 p.m on Sunday. Then NO FOOD after 4 p.m. only CLEAR liquids. Whew Whew! Can't hardly wait. Now, I don't get dinner! Then at 4 a.m. I get an Enema (like I won't be blown out already!)

Oh well, if this is the worst part, I won't do too bad.

Running around like a chicken with her head cut off this afternoon.
:smokin: like I ain't gonna get another one. Changing beds, cooking, cleaning. Thought it was time to stop and visit with my sisters. I have a really good idea. Take one of your best friends to the pre-op with you so you will laugh your butt off instead if crying. I took my bestfriend with me today and she had me cracking up all day. We had a really nice lunch and caught up on our lives. Well, guess I better get off my soap box. Hope everyone is having a great day.

Hang in there with me! I need all of you now more than EVER!

Sorry to hear your surgery date was postponed! If I go through all of this bull and mine is postponed I will have a flying fit!

Hang in there. Soon enough we will be princess no longer LIW!

Back from Pre-Op Appt.

I'm glad your pre-op went well. I go for mine Monday and my surgery is Thursday the 21st. I had a colonoscopy <spelling> November 1st. Had a lot of rectum bleeding but the stuff they took out came back all negative for cancer. But I had to drink that awful stuff and had to take an enema the following morning. The stuff you drink is horrible. I vomited most of it up. But I guess enough stayed in my system to do the job.

Will keep you in my prayers and thoughts for Monday. Just think you will probably be home when I'm just going in. But we will not be LIW anymore. We will be a princess. Hip hip Hooray!!!!

Take care,
