Looking forward to it

Monday, July 19, 2010

I have to have some surgery. It would help if I would schedule it.

It must admit though I am kind of looking forward to my time in the hospital.


- I do not have to share a bed with anyone
- I can pee alone
- I may even be able to shower alone
- Someone will bring me food that I did not have to shop for, cook, or clean up.
- I can use my grown up voice and be called my name
- Maybe- just maybe I can sleep.

So what is surgery? A small price to pay. A pittance, really. The part that has me worried is the recovery... stay quiet for six weeks. Clearly, they have no idea about my life.
Even with the assistance of my four very active visual aids the doctor expects 6 weeks of recovery. Wishful thinking dude. Obviously he has not had the pleasure of living my life.

To be honest, I am scared. Not really as scared of the surgery itself so much (I am nervous about that) But the part that has me worried- really worried is the recovery. Six weeks of recovery? really? I don't know if I can do that. I don't know. I can use all of the positive energy and prayers you can muster please sned it my way.

Well i don't think you get a choice on the recovery part-i think it's just gonna be something you DO. I imagine, much like the week after birth, you'll do things normally for a few hours or half a day then suddenly get dizzy and shaky and remember that "Oh yeah, something beyond ordinary happened to me" and your body forces you to take a time out. Hopefully the kids can get that too!

How is nursing going to work during this time? I'm guessing Pixie is still very attached to YOU and nothing else!

For obvious reasons Pixie will be with my sister after the surgery.

The problem is that I have to have a stent for a month... which is going to be a whole lot of crap.

The big kids are going with my mom for a some time which should be enough to get me through the worst
