All of you are the best. To say I’m stressed right now is an understatement, but seriously… All of the prayers and hugs just make me feel ten times better.
I don’t know any of you in person, but there’s just something about hearing “I’m sending you hugs” which means to much to me.
Surgery date: THIS MONDAY.
This morning was really hectic. I tried to get in contact with the surgery department who said the next available opening was April 29th. Immediately, I tried to explain to the girl it was a semi-emergency but I guess everyone says it so she just said, “It’s the best I can do”. Tears followed, of course.
Since I knew my surgeon was really concerned about this, I sent him a quick text message and he replied with, “Bone is crumbling and surgery needs to be done ASAP. Semi emergency”. So I tried, tried, and tried again to get a hold of the department while thinking I wasn’t leaving messages because my phone always does crazy things during important times. Finally, the nicest lady called me back to tell me my surgery is this Monday.
Oh… and I’m staying overnight. This gives me extreme anxiety due to the fact I hate hospitals and had to stay in the hospital for a week due to an emergency surgery during final’s week in college. It was a trip, let me tell ya. Now, I pretty much have a panic attack when I go to a hospital. As if surgery wasn’t enough to give me anxiety. Jeeeeesh. And I have to leave Elmo alone with my parents who don’t discipline him at all. Oy.
Also, I don’t really like hospital food – surprise, surprise – so I’m having a bit anxiety about it. I know last time I thought I had to stay overnight my mom went to Wegmans and brought me all of my favorites – even oatmeal. We had a horrible fight this morning… I’m talking horrible, but I love her. Always.
And I’m bringing my Kindle, so I hope someone stays up with me realllllllly late and tells me how much fun I’m going to have when this is all healed up.
I’ll also add a picture of Elmo after his haircut today because, well, he really makes me happy so I hope he brightens your day, too. 🙂
Does your phone ever decide to be difficult during the most important times?
