I am so nervous.
But then I remember the great surgeons taking care of me and I get a sense of relief…
But then I think about the surgery and I get nervous again.
It’s a never.ending.story.
Tomorrow is my surgery and I can’t believe it’s finally here! Two years in the making. I spent my day at more doctors appointments,found out I’m all set to go for surgery apart from the presence of kidney stones but….I’ve had 8 in the past year and a half so I’m used to them. As long as they don’t start to travel down I’ll be okay.
Here’s a picture of me getting blood drawn. Look how scared I am!
Walking around the downtown mall, my eye caught on to a poster for a chocolate store that I just had to visit. I spent the next 15 minutes searching for this place and finally found it. I picked flavors ranging from chocolate salt all the way to lavender chocolate…simply delicious. Before that I had gone to Ihop and ordered myself a monstrosity piled with whipped cream, blueberries, and hash browns.
For dinner…oh dinner. My last meal for 4 months, I decided to go with Italian. The best part was the wonderful company we were with. At my first appointment with Dr Gunson I met another patient having his surgery a day after mine! We swapped numbers, our mothers swapped number and we met up for dinner. It was the perfect way to relax and eat a delicious meal at a great place called Bucatini’s.
This is a picture of my mom and I!

I am praying my surgery goes well tomorrow. I’m very nervous, don’t know if I will sleep, and I’m irked at the idea of having to wait until noon to go the hospital.
Did I mention I’m nervous? 🙂
I keep reminded myself that this is the last big thing and then, recovery will lead me to a path of perfection!
Until then, I’ll be writing to you all with my new face 🙂
