Life as Lou

going into surgery

  • February 29, 2012 4:32 pm

I’m sitting here typing on a phone, wearing an inflatable, lavender hospital gown with hot air being pumped in. I look like a purple sumo wrestler. I also have an IV, and they gave me a few drugs that have left me slightly groggy. The dr is late because he is deli wrong – ha ha- auto correct – delivering a leap day baby. I feel good about the surgery and I really do think this is the right path for me. I have been promised good drugs and I’m supposed to be home tomorrow night provided all goes well. They have briefed me on everything and the only thing left to talk to the dr about is if he’ll put my uterus in a jar for me to look at after. That’s all for now.

    I know the surgery is done by now, but I still am thinking of you and hope all is well! I spent the day in a cold sweat and tears because of my lovely uterus trying to kill me from the inside out and I actually was kind of jealous it was not me going in for the surgery. I have an appt. to talk to my doctor soon though! You will have to let me know how it goes so I can make a good decision! Lots of love!
