This is how it went. We checked in at 11:30 AM. I have not eaten since 9 PM yesterday. I am grumpy when I am hungry!
I was called back and they put me in a heated robe. A heated robe! I gotta get me one of those!!
I was in my little cubby pretty much freaking out. I asked one more time if I did not have to be put out for this and the answer was no. I had this overwhelming fear that I would wake up to find out that the doctor did a hysterectomy by accident and we would not be able to have kids. The doctor came in and I told him to please save my uterus! He smiled.
They started my IV and the ‘knock me out so I don’t remember or feel anything’ drug and apparently I asked if I could count sheep.
The next thing I knew I woke up and asked if they had taken me back yet, I totally didn’t remember a thing…..UNTIL….we were at McDonalds and it all came back to me. I remember getting strapped to the table and commenting that the strap was really tight. Turns out the tight strap was the blood pressure cuff.
Anyhow, since the surgery I have been a new woman. My energy is back and I am on the go go go again. I didn’t realize how bad I was feeling until now. Thank goodness for the great outcome.
