Maybe "other side is a BAD term! LOL

Once I was coherent following surgery my Wonderful Mom asked me if I could recall what I said to her right before going into surgery. I said, "No. Why?", fearing I had said something stupid! She says "Well babe, after you received your happy drugs, they began to wheel you into the OR. You asked me to pray for you and I told you I already had. Then you said you wanted me to say a prayer for you and I told you that I prayed for you, your DR and surgical team and that the angels were coming to watch over you." I said to Mom, "Oh how sweet." <And was so happy I had not said something ignorant. > Then my Mom says, "The last thing you said to me was not to worry, you would see me on the other side!"
My Mom thought that I thought I was DYING and was SO upset with me. I finally explained to her that I had been living on the message boards and we always say', "I will see you on the other side!"

HI Tracy

Your poor mom. Please give her our collective apologies for the scare. We do have our own unique lingo don't we?

I am glad you are home and otherwise doing well. Watch out for the part. I don't think that is allowed for a new

And just between us sisters Welcome to the Other Side

I laughed sooo hard when I read that. 'See you on the other side." We say it so much here and never think of it in that context. I am still laughing!

Glad to see you home. You are one of the first people I started reading when I joined the site at the beginning of May! It is so hard to believe you have been and are home already!!

Congratulations Princess! Your crown looks good!
Remember your training. Rest, drink lots of fluids, rest, walk and rest rest rest.

Take care - looking forward to hearing your story!

I can understand how upsetting this was for your mom. Most of us would have had the same reaction if we had not been on the inside of the lingo.
I like the term." On the other side". I think it represents a whole new least a different life...a second chance at life without the pain.
I wish you a restful and uneventful recovery.

That is too funny. But poor mom. I guess that you can't blame your mom for being upset. I never even gave that a thought.

I guess we've developed our own Ya-Ya lingo - If any of you have read or seen the movie "Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood", you'll know what I'm talking about. If not, buy the book and read it. I think we have our own Ya-Ya hood going on here!

I personally can't wait to meet everyone "on the other side"!

I laughed right out loud when I read your post. My husband thought I was nuts laughing at the computer. I think I'm feeling pretty emotional now as I count down one week to my hysterectomy. At least this time, the "near tears" was from laughter rather than stress! I can't reiterate enough how helpful it is to visit this place and be supported by other's stories.

Nice one, Lil hellion! LOL!

My Wonderful Mom's going to be with me too, so, thanks to your experience, I now plan to give her a quick lesson on Sister jargon.

She's always known I was a princess though!

Be well,

Oh my goodness!!! I laughed so hard my cats came in to see what all the commotion was about! Your poor, poor mom. I bet that was the longest surgery in the world for her. I for one am glad you made it to the "other side" see, I'm still laughing, Karlene

Awww... poor Mom.

Over a year ago somebody freaked me out one day by posting an update on another sister's surgery. No problem with that, it's just that she titled her post something like "So-and-so passed over yesterday." Yikes! She was fine of course - just "passed over" to the "other side", like you said. <whew>
