Surgery tomorrow

Well, tomorrow is the big day. I have the best plastic surgeon in the world doing my DIEP flap surgery in the morning. I was quite nervous this morning, until I saw him in the office. He is such an amazing person as well as an excellent doctor so he was able to put me at ease in a matter of minutes. Surgery will take about 7-8 hours so it will be a long day for my family. I always feel bad for them since I'm sleeping and completely unaware of the time it takes. It is stressful for the loved ones to sit and wait for news.

I'm sure I will be very out of it on Wednesday yet, but hopefully Thursday I may be up to writing a little. Here is the address to my blog if anyone cares to watch for information. http://ritatherapyjournal.blogspot.com/

I'll get my daughter or husband to put something on there when I am out of surgery. (Don't expect too much....she didn't write much when I had my mastectomy so I doubt she will write much tomorrow either.)

You all have a great week and You are all in my prayers!
God bless,

Rita, I know everything is going to work just as the surgeon described, but Moopy and I will keep you in our thoughts and prayers anyway.

Sounds like you have a wonderful and competent plastic surgeon. Once we are diagnosised with breast cancer, our lives get complexed. Our immediate support team understands this, and travel the distant with us.

Hugs and prayers,

Thanks everyone. I still have to pack my bag for the hospital but then I think I'm ready. knowing that I won't be able to lift more than 5 pounds or do anything for 6 weeks gave me a LONG list of things to get done prior to surgery. Thankfully, I think I have crossed them all off of my list so hopefully I will be able to sleep well tonight.

Talk to you in a few days.

knowing you are in surgery right now, I also know you are in the best hands possible. Take care and let us know as soon as you are able. My hubby did an admirable job (I think) of keeping everyone up to date, so if he can, anyone can. Just a short note is all we need.
thanks for letting us know, and good luck with the surgery
