I know ive only posted like once but I thought I would say bye.
Tomorrow morning at 2 am i will be headed to north to Walter reed army medical center. I will arrive there around 6 am. I got a call telling me info and where to go/do etc.. I was also told that im the first one of the day signed up for a surgery.
I will be getting a colectomy. They are going to remove my appendix and of course my colon, they will leave no more than 4 in. at my bottom. I'll most likely be getting an epidural because I think it will be a bit easier on me for when i wake up.
I thought knowing how much time i had left until my surgery would increase my thought of time through out the days, but everything seemed to go by faster. People "friends and family" have been asking ( Are you nervous? ) And for some reason I am not. I usually freak out and stress out about things alot but when I was told I was having surgery my mind just went blank kinda...
I have to start Movi-prep in 30 mins yay.. not.. heh, but I know I will be ok after I get it all down.
Diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis a little over three years ago. I now have to have surgery on may 25. I will be having a Colectomy.
