Two weeks from today I will be returning home to recover and heal from my breast cancer surgery. That is as long as I get clearance from my 2nd cardiologist on the 26th. Yes, I'm cutting it close but I can not get in to see him any earlier and the surgeon (and I) want this done. The original plan was much simpler....but now with my heart issues it has changed. The anesthesiologist will be a special, cardiac anesthesiologist and I will stay overnight, possibly in ICU.
The first hospital (where I was originally having my surgery) has a pre-surgery regime, I was told to wash with Hibiclens and also given special wipes to use on the surgery area. I was also tested for MRSA and prescribed a salve to put in my nostrils before surgery. We picked up and paid for those prescriptions......oh well. Oh, and I already have some pain pills too.....better make sure my present surgeon knows that!
I'm not sure how to explain it, but I have a 'bad' attitude of late. I'm not crabby, depressed, or angry. It's just that my attitude is bad, as opposed to good. I know I'l get through it, I'm just not happy with it right now.
This should be a fun weekend. Tomorrow morning I'm leaving for a scrapbooking retreat, it's only in the neighboring city....but I'll have a table to myself and can work on my scrapbook as much as I want and only take breaks to eat or whenever I want. I won't be home until Saturday night. The retreat ends on Sunday but I and Carolee only stay one night. For a change I am prepared and organized.....but I am sure once I start working I'll think of something I wish I'd brought along.
Next week I have several doctor appointments....and the week after, even the week after that. Let's hope all goes as planned.
Time to do some cleaning before I leave tomorrow morning.
Have a great weekend and thanks for visiting!!!
