Getting closer....

Had my pre-admission hospital visit AND my pre-op doctor visit today. Took the nurse two sticks and a long time to get any blood out of me. Got the lowdown on the Fleets enema and the betadine douche, etc etc. YUK. Doctor is really cool so I am very comfortable with him. He delivered both of my children. My surgery isn't until 3 pm on Wednesday and I can't have anything to eat or drink after midnight tomorrow!! YIKES!! I get so thirsty. All in all, I'm at peace with my decision and now I just want to get it over with.

Getting closer....

My surgery is Wed. at 11:30 am. Had my pre-op dr. visit today and will have my preadmission hospital visit tomorrow. I am no longer so worried about all the complications that can happen becuase I know this is for the best. I cannot live with a uterus that is so prolapsed it can fall out and I cannot live with bleeding that will not stop for weeks on end. I want a normal life and I am tired of suffering. I am leaving this in God's hands, knowing I have done all I can to make the best decision. I have a good doctor and that makes all the difference to me.

TVH or TAH scheduled for 6/30/04
Repairs to prolapsed organs as needed

Good Riddance

I think we all reach a point where enough is enough.

I was thinking about this the other day, talking to a good friend about the decision.

It's sort of like when your car keeps breaking down. You take it to the repairman once or twice but then you reach a point where it's just time to get rid of it and try something new.

The way I see it, I have this part of me that has served its purpose but is no longer functioning the way in which it was designed to function.

Time to get rid of it!

I'm through playing games, trying this and that. It's time to move on.

No lamentations. No regrets.

I'm ready for a new lease on life.

Good luck to all!
