Kathy, we are in the same boat!

Hi Kathy, my TAH/BSO is on the 18th - 3 days after yours. As you are coming home, I'll be going in. I, too, have had so many sleepless nights. I keep thinking what my fellow hyster sisters say -- the waiting is the HARDEST part. Are you having bizarre dreams when you DO fall asleep? The other night my dream was that they didnt give me enough anesthesia and I could hear everything they were doing and saying and I couldnt talk because of the thing in my throat -- talk about making myself sick!!!!!!! I keep talking to myself, telling myself to think positive.........that this is a GOOD thing, that there are a million reasons TO do it and only one not to (wimping out). This isnt an option. I have to do this. I want to..........its normal to be scared. We wouldn't be human!

I've been uncharacteristically spending money on myself - buying comfy sweats with drawstrings, nice cotton warm tshirts......getting my pillows ready......got my notecards and stamps ready for notes when I get home and somewhat settled and cabin fever sets in....decided to have the newspaper come daily instead of weekends so I'll have something to do and since daytime tv is a drag............

I would call the doc, maybe he could give you some Ambien or something to help you sleep. When I am in pain I take 1/2 of the prescribed pain pills and that helps me too. Keep yourself incredibly busy.

Best of luck and I'll look for your posting when I get home that weekend if I can sit at the PC.
I'll be thinking of you.

Big big big hugs from your fellow sister
