Surgery Tomorrrow!!!!!!! I Pampered Myself for Nerves!!!

Tomorrow this time my surgery will be completed =D> . As the time was approaching I noticed I was becoming a bundle of nerves so I reasoned with a long, possibly challenging recovery ahead I would pamper myself. So with that said I:

got a manicure & pedicure
got some new glasses (contact lens wearer)
getting my hair done in a style that will last a month so I don't look like Frankenstein's Bride =))

In addition I am going to the dentist in about an hr to make sure all is well in the teeth department. Right now I am pretty calm but sore due to all the running around so I am going to lay down until its time to go to the dentist.

I want to thank all of you for your support and encouraging thoughts. It has really helped me to remain positive. I do plan on asking for some meds before they wheel me into surgery because I know my nerves will reach its highest tomorrow and I will probably cry like a big baby :''( .

I will miss chatting with you guys but as soon as I'm able I will!

  • I hope your surgery goes well and wish you a speedy recovery! You have a great attitude and sound very strong. That will escort your through this much faster. Please let us know how things go okay! God bless!
  • on your surgery and recovery. You will do so well you will wonder why you waited. I also thought I would be freaked out that morning before surgery and was planning on letting them know I wanted something for the anxiety but I was amazingly calm. I couldn't believe it, I was totally ready and calm. My sister was crying when it was my time to get wheeled to surgery and I as the calm one! Whatever you need, ask for it. Take it easy, and get some rest.
  • I am not far behind you, mine is Monday. I think I'll take your suggestion & do some pampering too.

    May the Lord give you peace tomorrow, a smooth operation & speedy recovery.
