Surgery TOMORROW

Yes, the surgery has now become emergency.  Dr. B. walked into the surgical prep area, asked where I was, found me with the nurse getting the information set for Thursday and said that my surgery is being moved up to 0600 hrs tomorrow!

Yikes!  I guess I won't be dying my hair tonight like I had hoped.  I joked with him that he'll just have to deal with the old grey mare look.

So I'm nervous to say the least.  I haven't been cut open since I was a kid.  D&C, IVF and endoscopy doesn't count.

Dr.B. is going to do the three small incisions and if need be take my left ovary too.  Possibly a full laparotomy will have to be done or so I was warned.  I guess it all depends on what they find.  Oh and yes they are going to try to go after the endometriosis if possible.

Ugh!  What the heck did I get myself into this time?

J and me made a few calls when we got home this afternoon.  I had to reschedule a house inspection that was set for tomorrow.  Yearly crap that our Army post inflicts upon us.  I guess its actually a good thing.  J was going to get xrays tomorrow for his back.  Why not an MRI since its not skeletal but rather muscular I don't know and won't bother wasting time trying to figure out their logic?  So he might have to reschedule that.  He also has a class tomorrow that I told him as of now not to miss but we'll see what the discharge instructions say since I don't think I'm supposed to be left alone for the day. 

Tomorrow before I leave for surgery I'll be posting my blog about the book giveaway.  Please enter if you'd like a chance at winning a free copy of the book.

    1. Think if I asked nicely they would give me bionic ovaries with perfect non-aging eggs?
