"Surgery Time Change"

Late this morning I talked to my surgeon's office and got the last minute news that times were changing for tomorrow. Gee, what a surprise! I don't think I had a nice tone to my voice when they told me and I had to apologize for my shortness. Unfortunately, there have been times since my diagnosis I've just been stressed and irritable. Oh, Lord, forgive me and help!

So anyway, Now they're telling me to be at the hospital 8:30ish. The sentinel node injection is around 9:30 and surgery is "supposed" to be between 11:00-11:30. Surgery will take about three hours as long as there's no lymph node involvement.

Okay, regroup, refocus, deep breath, everything's going to be alright, turn on the worship music - quiet, soft and sweet...aah.

(By the way, everything I needed to do got done...yeah!!!)


  1. I feel your apprehension Sista. It will all be over before you know it. A week from now, you'll be up & around & ready for a Rita's Gelati! Hang in there Toots. xox

  2. Thanks, Carol. At times I can really get very anxious...all the unknowns, you know. But let's get going and get it over with, already!

    Pina Colada or Mango Gelati...oh yes, yummy!

  3. That sucks but at least you've still got the same day for surgery. Remember when they postponed mine because of the weird EKG? "Sorry, pal, maybe next month."

    Now, don't you feel better? Maybe not. Well, it's all I've got.

    Hang in there, kiddo. It'll be over soon and you'll be dancing to your iPod.


  4. I remember. I sure hope nothing like that happens last minute to me. I just really want to get this over with.

  5. I will be thinking about you tomorrow.
    If I can do anything, please ask.
