Surgery Tomorrow

Posted Sep 14 2008 3:57pm

My surgery date got moved up to tomorrow instead of Thursday. I can't tell you how happy I am. Sort of. I'm also nervous. I've never had surgery of any kind before. But I'm not going under general anesthesia for it. I discussed with the anesthesiologist that because of my asthma and my weight I don't want my airway screwed around with unless it's absolutely necessary. He agreed and is going to do a spinal block and heap on some happy meds if I start getting woozy. I'm hoping to be able to watch. Not like I haven't seen way grosser things in the hospital, they just weren't happening to me.

Wish me luck.

I go in at 7am, surgery is at 9am, don't know when I'll be home tomorrow. I don't know how long spinal blocks usually last but he said I have to be able to walk and pee before they'll let me leave.
