My pre-op appt today

Hi everyone. I haven't posted much, but I wanted to let you know that I had my pre-op at the hospital today and went thru the blood work and urinalysis, talked with nurses and the drug doc. This is my 3rd time in - once for a c-Section (had an epidural that didn't take then given a spinal), then a laparoscopy last year where I had general. I'll be getting general again. Last time I spoke with my doctor was the end of February and luckily, I feel very comfortable and don't feel the need for another appointment.

I left work at lunch today for appointment and will be taking the day off tomorrow for a facial and hair cut - a little pre-op pampering!

Then off to the castle I'll go on Wednesday, March 20th at 10:00. My surgery is at high-noon. I'm as nervous as I can be, but I'm ready to be on the list of Punctured Princesses.

Thanks so much for this site and for all the wonderful LIW's and Princesses!! You've definitely made a difference to me.

Hi Kristy,

What a neat idea - to pamper yourself a little before surgery. You'll make a great !!

It's normal to be getting a little nervous right now, but before you know it, you'll be back home and coming back to tell your story. Just don't do it too soon, please. You'll need to rest alot.

I'll be praying that all goes well for you on Wednesday.

Thank you both sooo much! This site has been so wonderful. It helped me prepare for my doctor, my pre-op, and now hopefully my surgery and recovery! I know it's very normal to be nervous, so I'm trying to keep busy this last 30 hours or so. I'm tired of being tired and tired of being sick and tired, so I am gearing up for the beginning of the rest of my life. I have lots of people thinking and praying for me, and a wonderful DH and DD to help as much as possible.

God bless both of you and thank you so much for your replies!! Hopefully I'll see you ladies on the flip side AFTER, of course, I rest rest rest, and drink and walk!

My surgery is the same day as yours, so you will not be alone. I will say a prayer for you. Good luck and please let me know how you are doing after. Enjoy your day of pampering (i'm jealous I have to work)

To my fellow LIW's

Hi there ladies. So nice to know that we won't be alone. We'll all hold hands and say prayers and give one another big hugs and voices of support. I'll be thinking of each one of you, and saying my prayers, as I don't have to be at the hospital until 10:00 and my surgery is at noon.

Now I've got to head to Wally World (Wal-Mart) and pick up just a few little things, get my facial and hair cut, which I am looking so forward to!! BUT then I have to come home and fold and put up laundry << yuck >>, but I do get to take our DD to her gymnastics class (she's 6 going on 16) and spend some time with her and my DH.

Just a few last minute things to be done. I'll probably be on here later, but if I don't get a chance to speak with any of you, my thoughts, well wishes, and prayers will definitely be there for all.

((( HUGS))) to all the Wednesday ladies!
