Thank you!

I don't know who is in charge of sending those adorable email birthday cards, but whoever it is thank you so much, it really made my day. I was a little down in the dumps today and that lifted my spirits.

I got a call from from dr today and they wanted to bump my surgery date up to May 24th and I absolutely lost my mind. I wanted to schedule it for mid-June because I have too much going on right now to be laid up. My daughter has all kinds of concerts coming up for the end of school and late practices after school, so I wanted to hold off till all that was done and over. Then they call this morning and say the hospital had an opening on the 24th and I about lost my mind completely. They are going to call me back tomorrow with a June date.

I was just curious if it was just me or did everybody go a little insane when they got their actual date? I literally broke out in a sweat and my heart started racing. I think somewhere in the back of my head I want to take more time to prepare, and the thought of having surgery in 2 weeks got me so scared.

But of course the old saying "Murphy's Law" went into affect today after I told them I wanted to schedule in June. I only have my right ovary left and after I turned down the May opening I started having a throbbing/stablike pain in my ovary. I don't know if that is a sign or just my body playing games on me. The ovary is full of cysts and it feels like it is going to burst out of my body.

Oh well, sorry for the long-winded message. I really only wanted to say thank you to all the hystersisters for the wonderful birthday card. I will post my surgery date tomorrow when I find out.

Thanks for listening!

Thank you!

(((((Donna)))))

Oh sweetie, it is SOOOOO normal to freak out before surgery! The waiting is the hardest part of the whole thing...you may not believe that now, but just wait till it's over with

Try listening to relaxing music, deep breathing exercise's, a nice cup of hot tea, and maybe a bubble bath.....and then think of the positive side of finally being a Punctured :

1. You can wear white pants ANY time you want!

2. You won't need to buy any more pads or tampons (think of the money you'll be saving)

3. You can go swimming ANY time you want!

4. No more periods!!!!! WHOO-HOO

5. No more pain!

See, that's just the begining Trust me, you are very much in the "norm" about being scared. Please remember that we are here for you and with you every step of the way honey!! Good Luck to you and I look forward to hearing you add more to that list I started.

Love & Hugs



P.S. To You!!!!

Thank you!

Donna,

I ditto everything Tina said and can't really say it any better. The waiting is the hardest part - but the end certainly does justify the means.

I can understand about waiting until after school is out for the surgery - as long as you aren't risking your health. I would defer to you doctor if that is the case - if they want it done sooner, it isn't worth the risk.

Hugs and best wishes!
