Thank you! I will keep you posted. It's been busy with last minute details I need to take care of (work, finances, household, etc.). I plan to blog here to give my day by day (if I can) from the hospital of how things are going. My pre-op today was overwhelming (x-rays, EKG, blood, urine). It feels so serious. I know it's all standard and precautionary but I still worry. Monday I had an endometrial biopsy, and so today I started my period. (Yay - :'( Just wonderful, right? I gotta joke. Because this is too much.
Thank you again for your thoughts. I appreciate it from the bottom of my heart!
It's 1:51am (Arizoa time). I was a big ball of nerves prior to surgery but when I woke from surgery I was very confused. Was almost unsure if the procedure took place at all because my pain was next to nothing! Praise be to God! My biggest worry and it was taken care of. I have had the best team of doctors & staff caring for me. I just wanted to tell you that & express my appreciation to you again for communicating with me. blessings to you! I will be back later to tell more!
