Day before surgery
Tuesday, July 07, 2015
Adding an extra blog today because I won't have time in the morning.
Surgery update: I have to be at the surgery center at 0600. I should be there for a total of 4.5 hours. My copay is a whopping zero!! I feel extraordinarily thankful that I have two insurances so that between them they have it covered! Praise God! My FIL is going to take a half day at work and take the kids tonight and watch them while I'm in surgery so they don't have to be in the waiting area. So glad I have such a wonderful FIL!! My BFF in TN wants to come down so badly. I'm trying to tell her no, but she's rather persistent. I would not be able to relax if she was here as I would go into hostess mode. That is about all I know about it. No word on diet restrictions or anything. Hopefully they will tell my husband as I probably won't be able to concentrate.
I got my gel nails removed, and I will never get gel nails again. I love them! I love how long they last and how shiny and pretty they are. But if you get them completely taken off and don't get another coat put on, your nails are filed down to at least half their normal thickness. My nails are flimsy and they ache, I can't use them for anything they are so flimsy. My right pinkie nail was filed to much that it has a bright red spot on it that hurts like crazy with any pressure. I've put a cushioned bandaid on it, not that it helps much. Makes me so sad, 'cause I was loving having pretty nails for once. Personally I think this lady didn't know what she was doing, and maybe it was just her that messed them up. After surgery I'll put a couple of coats of Hard As Nails on them and maybe that will help.
I ache. my whole upper stomach area is achy and sometimes crampy and really uncomfortable feeling. No sharp pains, so I'm not worried, but I hope it goes away soon. It's one of those pains that will wear away at you till you just can't stand it. I'm not going to take anything because I don't want anything in my system that might interfere with the anesthesia tomorrow.
To you all who are supposting me with your kind comments and prayers! Thank you!
One of the things bothering my right now is that my mind is in a daze/fog. I'm having a really hard time concentrating on anything. I had to fill out a paper for my insurance and I had to have DH do it because I just could not. I know this is a symptom of my "medical issues" and can also be a side effect of some of the meds I take, but this is really bad. I have to work really hard to concentrate to drive. Or to do anything. Maybe it is because I've been in pain so much that my brain is, I don't know, doing something? I just hope it goes away soon, I can't function like this!
