I've finished all the pre-op testing, all the registration stuff is complete with the hospital, and I'm all ready to go.
Just need to get the liquid diet (for the first 24 hours) in place, and then the gentle foods for the following week. (Guess no spicy or fatty stuff for me for awhile.)
Then I need to get the Advanced Directive stuff sorted out, not that it will be needed at all, of course, but you know how those hospital types are.
Final thing is to show my son where his grandmother's Dr appt is on Friday since I won't be able to take her. I really am glad he's driving now. Oh - and I think a bit of laundry since my favorite comfy nighty in in the dirty clothes hamper.
OK - so I guess I should have said almost all set, lol. But the hospital/Dr stuff is done, and just a couple things left to do around the house. And in approximately 41 more hours I will be free of this pain-inducing organ. Yes, I'm masochistic by nature, but I did not consent to the pain I've had recently. Never once has this pain helped me soar into sub-space!
I'm incredibly grateful for all the well-wishes and support. I know the universe responds to such positive energy, and I am made stronger knowing that energy is out there on my behalf. You all Rock!
