Well, it's official & has been blessed by insurance...back surgery is set for October. I got the word from my neurosurgeon today, they are removing a herniated disk that i injured last April. They sent a list of the pre-op tests i need completed before hand...wow-wow-wow-wow. Blood work, EKG, chest x-rays...then there's the post-op instructions...no showers until staples are removed IN 7 TO 10 DAYS!!!
Dang. That's a long time.
Then there's my Husband. Brendan will be taking a couple of days off, but i don't think he understands the stress i feel about having this surgery, not to mention the fun for afterwards: gotta lose weight.
OK - haven't we all at one time or another tried to lose? It's a drag. I'm just lazy. I'm pretty happy with myself; i like who i've become. I know it would be healthier for myself to lose weight. I know i'll live longer. Lazy, lazy, lazy.
I'll be off work for 6-8 weeks. Never been off work for that long, either. It will play havoc with our Thanksgiving plans. But, on the up side, this surgery has a 95% success rate. I'm looking so forward to not taking Vicaden every bloody day. I'm looking forward to going to bed & waking up in no pain. Brendan is looking forward to not having a grumpy wife. LOL.
So - in about a month, i should be in better shape.
If i can just handle the stress.
