coming home with care - thanks

update on my sad situation, where a week ago I was prepared to go to a nursing home, rather than be up on the 4th level of my sisters split level, alone with a highposter bed and a bathroom - alone all day - spoke to her about my concerns last night, and my alternative plan of coming home alone, and hiring some home heath time, and she said, if i wouldn't/couldn't come to her, she would arrange to stay with me for a few days when I come home from the hospital - she had promised, and swears she will, be with me in the hospital, so that I don't have to be alone, because I am scared stiff about being needy or in pain - my DR has approved my request for a private room to accomadate my 24/7 companion. this site gave me the strength to do what I had to do, and the knowledge to ask smart questions --thanks so much - if not for this site, I would have been taking ibuprofen right up until midnight before surgery - spoke to MD @ reading about it on the site, and he said 72 hours before - but prescribed someting else for me as I am about to get my last real period (late for the 3rd time in my life I might add), and then next expect it the morning of my afternoon surgery, and need meds for bad cramps for about 3 weeks prior at this point - MD is so cute - he said he knew I would be in touch when the new sunk in - he knows that I am a competent professional, and a together person, but also a worrier about things medical---I would not be so calm about the surgery with another doctor - he is compassionate, a good listener, and so up on new medical news - plus, he always remembers who I am - kidding - but a nurse friend had a gyn of years not remember a thing about her at her (last) exam with him - and she had seen him for gyn warts, and another problem - she switched to my guy and is happy ever after, just not in the land of hyster-
