I draw a deep breath as I write!

But I want you all to know so here it is.

I've known I needed this since about mid-August.

I have finally made the appointment.

Hugs, aren't you proud of me???

I'm getting THREE out, two on the upper left, and one out on the upper right.

That's right, both sides

Yep good Diana...you do not want the severe pain or infection.
If you are worried , you can do guided imagery during the weekend to calm you. Will think of you with good thoughts.

i did that a couple years ago...best thing i ever did. need to do the bridge now too.

dont be a hero if they offer you a perscription of tylenol 3`s...i needed them

lots of liquids, puddings, soups and cold stuff(popsicles like you said.). i changed the sheets before i left and climbed into bed and slept.

good luck and rest lots!

Ackkkk...That sounds awful Diana...and awfully good too!!!

Okay, 2:15 Monday...what time zone is that? A whole bunch of invisible cyber Time Outers will be filling that room to hold your hand and tell you to keep breathing and that it will all be all right!! We'll take good care of you, so don't worry about a thing!! If the surgeon is a man and if he is dark haired and in any way resembles an American Indian, one of us might get a bit problematic. Don't worry, though, we'll keep her in line so the doc can keep on working on you!! LOL

All kidding aside...so glad you're getting this done at last!! You'll feel so much better after it's all healed up. Nice you can get Medicab to drive you so you won't have to ask someone to help you!!

Yea, this aging thing is "interesting". We never know what's going to fall apart next!! LOL
