day almost here

I am getting very nervous as the day big day is 4 days away. I know that in the end it will be worth it but I'm so anxious about having everything ready at home and having my plans ready at work and trying not to be a big bother to anyone. My mom can help with the kids but I'm scared about how I'm going to feel. I know healing takes time, but I'm not patient with myself. I hate that I have to ask help from my friends and I'm not sure I can get everything done that needs to be done.

Re: day almost here

It is normal to be anxious and nervous. This is MAJOR SURGERY, and everyone is scared of the unknown.

It sounds like you are prepping just fine. But what you get done, you get done. And what you don't get done, leave it alone. It is not important. What is important is your healing. You need to become a pampered princess.

You will not really feel like doing much of anything when you get home from the hospital. Showering and getting to your couch will be an accomplishment. Just relax, get some good books, dvds, etc. It is great that you will have help.

Good luck with your upcoming surgery. We will be waiting for you on the other side.

(((Hugs))) to you.

Re: day almost here

I made lists, as I'd remember things I wanted to get done, but was not able to get to it till the next day. Helped me get everything ready

My neighbor told me "if you need anything, call" Well, I needed some bandage stuff from Walmart, so I called. Felt odd, but she sincerely made the offer, and was happy to pick up what I needed. None of us want to be a bother, but sometimes we do need others to help us out.

You will sleep a bunch when you get home, and really, I had few needs over all.

You will do fine, and soon be feeling better, with it behind you
