One week to go - a vent and a question

Hi Debbie--

I know exactly how you feel about not having support from the ones you love. My Mom is going to FL for a month, 2 days before my surgery. Her attitude is that it is not THAT serious and I could be a lot worse off. Now doesn't that make me feel all warm and fuzzy? She is retired and could go to FL anytime - but this is the time they had scheduled several months ago and she's acting like I should have scheduled my surgery around her trip!

Then my DH announces the day after I got my surgery date that he would only be able to take off the day of my surgery due to pressing issues at work. He also went on to say that our oldest DD would have to take off from college for a few days to help me and her 3 siblings. Needless to say, I felt like I was in shock and that no one really cared one bit about what was going to happen to me! I tried to push it down and not dwell on it, but being anxious about everything, it would resurface and I would get emotional about every little thing! Well, last weekend he told me that he had decided to take off 3 days, so DD wouldn't have to miss school. I was so relieved!

Sorry this is so long, but I really never expressed this to anyone before! I will be thinking of you and all the wonderful LIW who are anxiously waiting for their day to arrive! Hopefully with someone they love there to hold their hand!

Best wishes--
