Tomorrow at this time, I should be out cold and having ACDF surgery. Gulp. I woke up in tears this morning and then took a deep breath and got started on those last few things before surgery: laundry, whining, pacing, groceries, etc.
I've been in pain since January and tried everything before agreeing to surgery. Now I'm both eager and dreading it. I've read a lot of helpful posts here, both about the practical stuff (what to have handy, etc) and the emotional (think about AFTER the surgery and the possibility of not being in pain constantly). I would so love to get back to gardening. Something about playing in dirt and watching stuff grow just makes me smile.
Wish me luck. I'll report in and let y'all know how it goes.
