Surgery 1 week away...

Well, next week at this time, I'll be on the other side of this. I have finished my Christmas shopping, my "pamper me" shopping, some of my packing and I feel ready (at least as ready as I'm gonna be I have had some of the strangest pre-surgery dreams in the last few days so I must be more worried than I'm admitting. But really I feel pretty calm. I'm a nurse and I work with all the surgical staff at the hospital so I know I'm in good hands. Still I do have those moments of panic where I worry about the "what ifs"...since I am well aware of possible complications (which are part of every surgery). Of course, this morning my body decides I need one more period...haha, not very funny though. Anyway, I want to thank you for the support. Even though I am a nurse and know pretty much what to expect, it's helped me a lot to know that this is out there and to help me figure out what I might need post op. I've started telling my pre and post hyster patients about this sight so at least they have the support on the post op side of things. Blessings to all the sisters today!

Re: Surgery 1 week away...

Good luck to you - I am sure all will go well. As I am sure you know, the panic moments are normal. This is a tough surgery to ponder and recover from. Since you are a nurse, I hope you are taking a fair amount of time off so you can heal right.

We will be waiting for you on the other side.
