I was sitting here relaxing this afternoon and I realized in 3 days I’m having surgery. It’s been almost 34 years since I’ve been under general anesthesia. Then, I had morphine (ahhh!) to deal with the pain. I don’t know what I’ll be able to take after this. Unfortunately, Vicodin makes me ill. I haven’t been able to take Aleeve since Tuesday and nothing with aspirin. It was fun the other day having a migraine and not being able to take anything.
I’ve been busy at work for the past two weeks, so I haven’t really had a chance to dwell on the surgery, but now I realize that it’s happening. Now I’m nervous and anxious. I’m resorting to alcohol at night since I can’t take my sleeping pills and my hot chocolate isn’t working. 😦
I feel bad for my mom. We have to get there at 9am and my surgery isn’t until 11:30. It’s too far for her to go home and come back. She doesn’t use a computer or a smart phone. I just hope they have something on the TV for her to watch to keep her occupied. We’re not sure if she’ll be spending the night with me on Tuesday. Both nurses I’ve spoken to have said I need to have someone stay with me for 24 hours. I guess we’ll have to wait and see how I feel.
One more day at work then time off for a couple of months. This is going to be weird. I haven’t gone this long without working ever! I’ve got a lot of movies saved up on the DVR.
I will try to post on Tuesday after the surgery but I’m not sure how I’ll feel or if I’ll be coherent. 🙂
