The LAVH is a go for 1/15!!

I had my pre-op dr. appt today and pre-registered at the hospital yesterday. The Dr. agreed to leave my ovaries (whew!) and will attempt with 90% assurance he can do it, an LAVH and will rever to a AH (not total) if needed). Help me pray for an LAVH. I think the recuper will be less, although I know what abdominal is like since I had that same surtery 2 times!
prep is an enema (never done one before!) and then no food after midnight. I am to take an antibiotic(for my mitral valve prolapse) and my antidepressant with a bit of water the am of the surgery.
They said they'd give me a sedative, then start the IV then when I'm under put the catheter in (good!). The surgery should take 1 1/2 - 2 hours ( a bit more than abdominal apparently) and I should be in the hospital 2 days, one night barring any weirdness!
Now, its just to get to Walmart for BIG panties and the enema. woohoo!
ciao for now!

Congrats on getting to keep the ovaries! Go get those big panties, girl! You sound so relieved!
