Re: You Might Be Pre-Op IF......

Great idea about updating Facebook status! What did you say? I'm pretty open about my surgery, even with the guys at work, but I might not want to go into as much detail on FB. Some kind of codewords that the people who know can understand, perhaps??? Inquiring minds want to know...thanks!

"Takin out the work pen, puttin in a Play Pen"

Thats what a nurse told me from my insurance company

Oh yeah, I heard something similar -- "took out the baby carriage, but left the playpen "

21. You just stocked up on a month's worth of toilet paper, paper towels, paper plates, and plastic utensils.
22. You order the movie channels on your satelite or cable subscription for a month.
23. You stocked up on the reading you have meaning to catch up on.
24. Pulled out that old cross stitch project you have had tucked away "unitl you have more time".

39. You've accidentally signed "TAH" or "TVH" (or whatever type of surgery you've had/are having) as your initials on a document instead of your own. (I've done this, twice!)

40. You have a bag packed with many of the same items you had in your bag when you were pregnant, and it's waiting by the door, even though your surgery is weeks away.

41. You've gone to every used books store in a 50 mile radius to find some great reads while recovering....bought a stalk higher than your dining room table, and only spent $12.64.

42. You've shopped for and bought new PJs, two sizes bigger than usual, and they are all the same item, just in different colors...and they are, of course, in the above meantioned bag. (New panties also applies here).

21) You practice coughing, making sure not to move your belly.
22) You pack and repack the bag you are taking to the hospital, and everyone wonders if you plan on actually running away from home with all you've stuffed in it.

43.) Have been having DH (DS, DD, DF) practice helping you to a standing position.

44.) Have given co-workers a job to do---make a list of all their favorite movies (just in case they name one you forgot)

45.) Have been teaching family how to do things YOUR way!

21) You are celebrating your last ever period in medieval style, hanging your LAST EVER stained sheet out of the window! (well, not quite but you get the idea... )

22) You measure your waist without holding your stomach in, in order to maximise your pending inch loss...

24) Shopping becomes a whole new experience.. outsize black granny panties, super-baggy pyjamas with draw-string waists, support cushions in all shapes and sizes and 'helpful' implements for the elderly (helping hand grabbers/hostess trolleys) are now the focus of all shopping trips.
