Surgery Tomorrow

I had a fun, witty, informative post written about my surgery tomorrow.
  And then, I was interrupted…for like the 18th time…and somehow it was deleted.  It is one of those nights where the word “MOM!” has been said one too many times, and I need to get my needy punkins into bed. (Dad is working late at a volunteer training)

Here are to-the-point details..ready?
Surgery tomorrow morning 10:30 at Methodist Outpatient in Omaha.
Implant exchange and internal sling revision, to fix an implant that does not want to stay “up.” (That explanation was so much more fun and interesting in my last writing.)
I am ready.  I am tired. I wore myself out preparing to be useless for a week. 
I really am doing better than I sound.  Really.  Just in a bit of a sarcastic mood..
I’m ready to do this thing!!  
Bring on the I.V., the gown that I freeze in, the cup to pee in!  I’m ready to count backwards from 10, to be asked if I’m ready take a nap, to sign the papers that state that I understand there is a very small possibility that I may not wake up from that “nap”.  {Slightly disturbing}
C’mon silly “one-size-fits-all” socks, blood pressure cuff that is on auto squeeze, bed on wheels, bright blinding surgical lights, masked surgical team that may be smiling at me but who knows?  
I got my prescription anti-nausea patch to stick behind my ear—the one whose price made me nauseous. I got my pain pills that constipate me, my anti-constipation pills, my antibiotics to ward off any infection and my hibacleanse to shower with tonight.  I’m stuffing myself full of food and drink because cut off- time is at midnight.
I am ready. 
I am ready, surgery number 5. Let’s do this exchange!

    I am so sorry for being late here. Hope everything went of well. I might be late in posting comments but you are always a part of my prayers. I am sure you’ll beat the beast 🙂

    I understand how it is to be distracted and then losing the flow of writing all together. It happens with me all the time and then, even drafts don’t help.

    Amy, you are an amazingly beautiful woman! I love the youtube video you put together celebrating your wedding anniversary. Praying that all went well with your surgery, that God gives you wisdom and perfect peace in what direction to take regarding your hormones, that fall would become a season of rest as well as a season of gaining more and more strength, and that God will bless you abundantly with many, many more years of life and vitality and that you will see the day when you become a grandmother (with cellulite!)

    Blessings to you!
