4 days to go...had pre-op workup today.

Well....all is looking good for the TAH early Monday morning. Met with the doctor after meeting with surgery nurse and anesthesiologist, had blood work and x-rays.

Good news - I do NOT have to do any kind of bowel cleansing prep YAY! Only instruction is nothing to eat or drink after midnight Sunday. And to wash with a special liquid soap I need to buy at the pharmacy, both the night before and the morning of the surgery.

My son (in the Air Force) is going to be able to come home for at least a couple weeks, maybe more so that will be a HUGE help for all of us and alleviate some of the worry from my hubby and daughter.

When I came in late to work this morning, the other girls in the office had gotten me a hilarious large cookie - wish I could upload a pic. I think you guys would get a big laugh out of it as I did.

The doctor did mention something new today, and that was that there was also what looked like a small cyst on my left she said she'd be looking at it, and if it appeared suspicious she would just take it out. Plan is to leave the other one of course (again, with the caveat that if there's anything "suspicious", she'll just take it all.)

And, she did relieve my worries that all tissues removed will be sent for testing, thought it probably won't be completed before I leave. If all goes 100% well, I'll be able to come home early Wed. evening.
