Prayers sent.  I hope everything goes well.


Thanks. Tomorrow if I remember to call, the date will be made clear to me. The suspense is bad. :P

I hope you get the earlier date, and that it's all keyhole-procedure-and-back-home-for-dinner simple!

Thanks :) The date is under question. Just noticed the sheet they printed out for me and the sheet with my surgical instructions have 2 different dates on them. Hoping I can get the earlier date. Gotta wait till monday to call. Ah, the suspense!

Called today. Surgery is this Thursday at 7:30 in the morning. I have to be at the hospital by 6. That is much too early for me. I'm usually still sleeping at 6 in the morning. :eek:

Well at least I don't have to wait 3 weeks. :)

**PS**If anyone has any ideas for a ritual I can do the night before to help ensure things go well or to invoke the protection of any deities I so choose, please let me know. Thanks!!

Keeping a candle lit for you Outlaw now and through your surgery.
You can also find my ramblings at my blog although I\'m not the best at regular updates.  I\'m working on fixing that. Or look for me on FB here or Google+ here. :)

UPDATES: I survived. General anesthesia isn't as bad as I thought it would be. Slept most of yesterday (the day of surgery) and all day, I was not able to keep food down. today I'm eating again and my stomach is not rejecting the food. My appetite is even back. I removed the bandages and the cuts are held together with really sticky tape.

At the hospital, I asked for more anti-nausea meds. The nurse said they had given me the max dose of two different meds, and they didn't seem to help.

Still sore, but feeling good otherwise. Have RX painkillers. They help. :) The night before surgery I did my little Odin ritual and that went well too.

Thanks to all of you for your prayers.:cool:

Glad that all went well and that you're feeling better and keeping down food today.  Just take it easy, rest and recover!

I'd think it rather hard to post here otherwise. ;) Rest, avoid lifting weights, and heal well. (I'll keep you in mind during my shift tomorrow.)

Thanks. :)

Still doing better. Still a bit of pain but that is improving day by day. I guess Allfather does have His healing hand on me. :cool:
