HOSPITAL TODAY....

Ok, to say I am not nervous would be a lie, so... I'M NERVOUS!!!! It's like really early in the morning and we are getting ready to go ..... Mike is staying home with the kids, Stew is going to take me in then come back home to get the kids off to school.... and come back after that to wait for me.

I SHOULD be allowed home afterwards, depending on what they end up doing "down there"... all going well it will only be the biopsy's and removal of fibroids.... but ya just never know and that's the scary part eh?

I am not taking the computer in with me.... cos it would look stoooopid if I'm only there for the day! If by some chance I'm in overnight.. you will all just have to wait till I get home! So, see ya later tarts and the odd dude.....

Today: got to hospital at 6.45, Stew left to get kids to school, I was taken into pre-op at 8 and into the theatre by 8.30 ! That was quick! The anethetist would not gas me to sleep because......
I WAS TOO FAT....I'M TOO FAT, FAT FAT FAT !!!! So, I cried and cried, and shook and shivered. . . and generally was a mess... bloody sook I am!!!! They were ever so nice about it though, and all the people in theatre (hell like about 10 people)... all joked around and took my mind off the NEEDLE... and it was in and over with before I even realised what they were doing. I laughed about the theatre undies they put on me, like why did they bother, they were the first thing to come off.The surgeon joked he was wearing the same ones... so I tried to get his pants down to have a look, but he was too fast for me...darn!
Anyway, when I came too I was feeling like shit (normal) but OK. the surgery took about an hour and a half I think. They could not remove my fibroids cos they were in the muscluar wall of the uterus, so that's a bugger cos they are what's causing all my back ache and heavy monthlies... maybe a hysterectomy later on will solve that wee problem. So... I slept on and off in the recovery room for the next 4 hours, and Stew picked me up at 3.30 and brought me home, where I am now quietly sitting in me Lazy Boy and just taking it easy.
We should have the results of the biopsys late next week, so hopefully it will be all good news and I can move on....
Here's a pic of me snoozing....


No makeup, no jewellery, no knickers!!! ha ha ha. Talk about NAKED!
I am now soooo determined to get back to my healthy goal weight... I was gutted when the anethetist said I was too FAT!!! Really devestated actually.... know the feeling? I could cry again actually just remembering it.... fuck it all !
later....

I love you all, I've had email, texts, phone calls, flowers.... THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!! And I even heard from one of me out of town kids!!!

I have about 60 bloggers' updates to read, and I'm sorry, but I just can't!!! My eyes won't stay open, so just know I love ya all, and I'm sorry I can't read and leave you a comment today. I feel bad about that!

Right, I'm not sitting here any more, I keep making the most derrr mistakes... so will say nite nite.

NSW TODAY: Well, I have eaten nothing at all excpet a wee bit of coleslaw for dinner ! Oh and I actually drank 9 glasses of water in the hospital after my op!!!! AMAZING!

  24. Good to hear you got through it all OK... I never realised that you couldn't be gassed if you too big. When I had my nose done they did a needle and then the mask and that was it I was out of it.

    Maybe this will give you a bit more determination to lose some kilos (that kinda sounds mean - but I don't maen it in a nsty way)

    Lots of Hugs to you... have been thinking of you today and hoped all went well.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Glad to hear that it is over and you survived ok. Now, rest up! No painting (walls, canvases, other), housework, shopping (although, you could do it online...), cooking or running around after the kids. Just sit there, relax and iron, hehe.

  27. I heard the fat comment 3 weeks and 6kgs ago ... god I so understand how that one feels! Hope you are feeling a little more chipper now :) Congrats on the water too :p

    ReplyDelete
  28. Pleased all is ok - but shame about the fibroids! Too fat!! Don't let it get to you - you aren't, I'm surprised knowing you that you didn't chirp back - you should have seen me before - or told them where to go! They got you at a weak moment.

    Take care Chris, too early yet but if you aren't up to Sat. will understand:-) And not reading our blogs - well we do understand!

  29. Good to see you are back at home and on the mend, now for the hard part to sit back and let everyone else run after you.I have an idea I would like to share with you so will email you over the next few days when you are up to it all (and finsihed enjoying the pampering).

  31. I'm glad it's all over with and you are home Chris. Fingers crossed for good results.

    Trust you to be worried about not reading blogs. You've got a pretty good excuse.

    I agree with everyone else about using those comments to motivate you.

    I hope you feel much brighter tomorrow.

  35. Sorry to hear the bastards wouldn't gas you to sleep, sorry they told you you were overweight (bastards) and sorry they couldn't take out your fibroids.

    BUT I am happy that it is all over and done with and am now hoping everything comes back positive.

    Chin up chicken.

  36. *big cuddle*

    It's sucks about not being able to remove the icky shit in your tum.

    I have read the next post too and all I can say is, sometimes it takes someone outside our circle of loved friends to wake us up. If that guy is your catalyst then so be it. For the record, I would have sobbed too.

    I'm glad to hear you are resting up.

    I've been thinking of you.
