Positive Thoughts Needed

Hi Sisters,

I need some positive vibrations from all of you. My TAH is scheduled for 3/28 and I still have the bug from last week. My surgeon is keeping my pre op appointment in hopes that by Wednesday it will be gone.

As you know, the waiting is the hardest part. And I have been waiting since 1/31 for this date. And while I don't want to do anything to jeopardize my recovery, I am really anxious to get this over with. I, like all of you, am tired of feeling tired, and debilitated by the night sweats and hot flashes. I am now to the point that I can't even vacuum without stopping to take a nap.

So keep me in your thoughts and prayers so that I can make my surgery date on Thursday.

Thanks in advance!

I am resting and drinking plenty of water in order to rid myself of this cold. Any other thoughts?

Hi Shelly:
My thought and prayers are with you. I am praying you get over that cold before the big day. I'm sure you'll be just fine. I haven't had my surgery yet, but can't wait until it is over. Good luck and take care.

Hi Shelly

Hang in there, you have had a long wait, but you're almost there!

Keep drinking that water and the chicken soup Karen suggested. It seems to work for me. You might want to check with your doctor in the morning and see if you can take extra Vit C.

Then wave goodbye to that bug!

You're in my 'ers. You're gonna make it and do just fine.

Going, Going ... gone

Thanks to one and all for your prayers and kind thoughts! My surgeon has diagnosed my "cold " as severe allergies so the show will go on! I will be admitted tomorrow for a 10:30 am TAH. Continue to keep me in your thoughts!

See you all on the other side!

PS... a special thank you to Seeshelley for all of her support and encouragement. You are terrific!!!!!!!!!

Hi Shelly

I'm so glad to see your post. I've been thinking of you all day.
I know the count down is hard. But keep taking those deep breaths. I had an amazing calm come over me the last day and I will try to send one your way too.
Before you know it, it will be over...and you'll be posting here how waiting was the hard part.
You know how fast a one week vacation goes? Well this week will go fast too. You'll be bouncing back real soon.
We'll have your crown ready.
See you on the otherside.

Severe Allergies and Surgery

Hi there,
I just want to let you know I have severe allergies and I had two surgeries at the end of Sept. The surgeon and anesthesiologist did a great job and took good care to see that my allergies were watched carefully. I never had a problem. (Fortunately, I get to get the same anesthesiologist for my TAH/BSO).

I was very nervous about my allergies and they did such a good job and my allergies were never a problem. I am so glad you won't have to wait extra time. You will be in my thoughts and prayers. Take care, Kathy
