Update of sorts

March 7, 2012 · 3 comments

FINALLY heard from the scheduler and I’m scheduled for March 29th to have my surgery to remove the lymph nodes and right ovary.

Other than that, I have no details. I have a pre-op appointment with the surgeon on the 28th, so I’ll find out more details then.  I have no idea right now if it’s in-patient or out (although I think in since it’s at the main hospital). I don’t know the recovery time, what to expect or anything like that.

What I DO know is that I am very relieved to have an actual date to have this stuff taken out of me.  Just knowing it’s in me has been causing ridiculous amounts of stress and anxiety.

In the next 3 weeks I’ll be getting ready. I have a to-do list a mile long – things for the house, things for the office, things for me.  Mike will be taking a little over a week off, and my mom and his mom are at the ready to help with the boys. I’m very thankful.

Now, if we could just get this “yucky stuff” as the boys know it out of me so we can work on moving ahead. Phew.

I’m so glad that both your mom and your MIL are going to be able to help out. That must be something of a relief.

A date is good. Yep — time to get the nastiness out.
