Here we go!

I mentioned in a prior post, Good News and Bad News, a surgery that was coming up.  Well it’s time.  I officially am banned from food and can only have clear liquids tomorrow as I have to take some pills and have some drinks to clean out my system for my surgery prep.  I have to run into work tomorrow morning from 8:00 am to 11:00 a.m. as I need to try to tie up a few loose ends.  This surgery happened to fall right as an audit is starting (not by my choice the audit was scheduled after I scheduled my surgery).  10:00 a.m. I will take an antibiotic.  11:00 I will rush from work and run some documents into the bank.  They called me Friday afternoon saying they needed a few more things because we are trying to re-finance our house.  Then rush to a Dr’s office and get my biweekly allergy shots.  Then I need to get home by 12:00 to start the clean out system (pill and drink) that will keep me close to a bathroom.  It’s going to be a busy morning.

I will get a phone call tomorrow afternoon telling me what time to be to the hospital Tuesday morning.  Then Tuesday morning we will make the hour drive to the neighboring city where I will have surgery.  I am hoping all the effects of the clean out will be gone by then. 

I did meet with my specialist and he will not be doing a hysterectomy, but they will take out my appendix while they are in there.  I had to meet with the general surgeon that will be working on my colon if they have to remove a segment and he agreed to take out this ever growing cyst in my breast while I am having surgery.  Yay…this cyst has decided to take over residence in my breast expanding its territory and it must go!

Also on the agenda for next week is a midterm for my current grad class.  I am prepared and ready to take it.  I can take it online.  My professor hasn’t posted when he will open the test yet.  This professor doesn’t have a “set schedule” outlined for our class.  It really is driving me crazy.  I like things outlined and planned and set in stone.  I’m a little high strung and anxious without a schedule.  I have told him of my surgery (definitely not the details…just that I was having surgery) and he said he would work with me if I was still in the hospital and it interfered with my class.  So I really can’t complain too much about him not having a better schedule for things.  I don’t have class until Friday night and Saturday morning and I hope that I will be able to make it to class.  The thought of missing something really important from class stresses me more than having surgery!  I’m sure that as Tuesday morning gets closer I will worry more about surgery and less about class.

If you can’t tell by this post, I overschedule everything. 

Well…don’t know if I will get any sleep tonight.  I’m too worried about getting everything done for work by 11:00.  But I would rather think about work than what could possibly happen to my colon Tuesday.  If you see a lot of reading on your old blog posts tonight and tomorrow it could be me lurking through your blog!!!

I will talk to you in a few days.


  1. Yikes, sounds complicated. I hope all goes well & that you have a speedy recovery!
