8 Days To Go!

Only 8 days to go till castle date.. how are you other 4/23 ladies doing? So far so good here, having some pain.. out of pain meds. Called doc & left message for her to call me back. Don't know if I can get anymore pain pills and take them this close to surgery, but will soon find out.

Hi Amy

Its me the other 4/23 LIW....having a relatively good morning. The sun is out and that helps. Getting my kids schedules written down today, phone numbers to the neighbors, lunch menus....etc. Poor hubby never had to deal with all of this before. He is just great and assures me he will handle all of it just fine and we will get through it together. I am scared.....but I am trying not to let myself get down again. I have shortness of breath, chest pains and massive anxiety if I dwell too much on this. Oh Boy!!! Trying to keep on the laundry, and double cook meals...If I make meatloaf I make four instead of two...and freeze them. I think work this week will be good for me but I dont plan on being to focused while there.

Gonna do one last big cleaning next Monday as I wont be going very far with the bowel prep stuff running through me....yuck!

Lots of things to handle around here yet......but sigh.....wish it were over already.

8 Days To Go!

Hello Ladies. I am 4/23 too. I have been struggling with a cold that just won't go away. I have my pre-op tomorrow. My doc says rest, rest, rest and fluids. That is easier said than done. I am in pain everyday so the pain meds make me a bit jittery. My nerves are gone, I am premenstral this week so I am dreading this last one and I can't sleep. I hope these next 8 days go by quickly. I stayed home from work today to get some things cought up but I pretty much laying around. I think I am mentally exhausted. The reality of the pain of recovery is starting to come over my like a cloud. I have mixed feelings, looking forward to the rest of my life but not looking forward to the first few days post-op.

trying to be positive

this may sound nutty, but I am actually looking forward to the pain of recovery because I know that is a pain that has a beginning and an end.. it won't be a pain that makes me wonder... what is wrong with me.. do I have cancer etc... this cycle I am in now, period due on the 20th, has been the easiest... just a few stabbing pains...I can only guess it has to do with my having taking two rounds of antibotics this past month and my taking it easy.... but it makes me say, hum... should i cancle... heck no... I know I would be in my usually agony next month. I remember one month one of my daughters wanted to go shopping for clothes and I just couldn't do it... the pain was unbearable.. she said, gosh, its like your a grandma instead of a mom.... that really hit home and made my decision that much easier.. I've missed out on alot of stuff because I was bleeding too much, the pain was too much.. NO MORE... I am going to have my life back and it is going to start on april 23rd. YEAH ME!!!
okay hope this mood lasts for the afternoon... hahah up an down and up and down goes this waiting game...
