Pre-op today and surgery Monday, 1/7

Well, I have my pre-op appointment today and on to surgery on 1/7. A little nervous. There's so much to prepare for between office and home. I'm keeping a positive attitude, though and feel that I'm doing the right thing.

January 7th, sister here!

I too am going to the castle on the 7th, I go to pre-op tomorrow. I'm a little nervous too, I keep cleaning up, all the laundry is done, and I still feel like there is more to do. I suppose if I keep busy, I'm less scared. Last week the Doc's office called and said my insurance denied the surgery, because they didn't have Pap results on me, I was secretly relieved "like good I won't have it", never considering that I need it and how much better I'll feel. So in the days that it was pending I got into this comfortable calm cause there was a huge possibility they wouldn't approve it in time. Well, they called yesterday to confirm that everything was taken care of and all systems were go. I went into a huge panic and all the chores I named you, I did all those yesterday afternoon to keep from screaming! I know in my heart (because I prayed) everything will be fine, and this surgery is necessary, still it's human to stress! I hear this waiting is the worst and I'm believing it! Stay focussed on how GREAT you'll feel afterwards, do something to keep you busy or relaxed, and of course a little prayer goes a long way! Dionne

Another Jan. 7th Sister

Hi All!

Thought I would see how all my Jan. 7th Sister's were doing? I have been a cleaning maniac today! Staying busy keeps me distracted and that is a good thing at this point. I can't believe I will be heading to the castle in just 4 days! YIKES!

I got my Hystersister's Book in the mail today. I even went and bought me a nice body pillow today. I am really getting into this princess thing. hehe

Best wishes for a speedy recovery to you all!

Lots of ,s!

I head in on 1/7 also - glad to see I'm in good company. My surgery isn't until 5 PM and I'm not sure how I'll make it through the day - I'll probably just stay online til I have to leave!

I'm Jan 7, too!!

Oh, my fellow Jan 7th sisters!!!! Let's start a "Jan 7" club!!! I am too going to the castle on Monday Jan 7 and can't wait to get it over with. I've know about this date for about 7 weeks and the waiting is killing me. I feel like my life has been on a "holding pattern" this past month... anyone else feel like that? I want it to be over with so that I can get my life back. I guess that I am starting to get a few little butterflies : in my tummy now that it's only 3 days away.

I went to my pre-op on the 2nd and everything is ok. I don't have to have an enema

Don't know if I'll be able to keep ovaries (my doctor wants to see how they look)... I love my doctor and I know she'll do the right thing.

I look forward to hearing from all of my JANUARY 7TH sisters (to compare notes, share stories and to give hugs )

Good luck, sisters

xoxo, Molly
