Good morning everyone. I can't post long. I am going to take a bath and try to clear my mind as best I can. Today is the day I have my surgery(laminectomy). I have to be at the hosp at 10:30. Surgery for 11:30-12:30 spot somewhere around there.
I am glad this day is finally here. It has been a long day. I hope and pray that this "fixes" my discs and releases the sciatica pain. I am trying to keep a positive attitude about everything. I keep pushing the "what if's" away,but they keep coming back!! I realize that I don't have a clue how long the surgery will even take. But then again it really won't matter to me-I won't know a thing. I am worried about my BP. It has been way up for months now. I have HBP,have been on meds since I was 18,I am 39. My daddy died when he was 29. Anyway I will have a EKG this am. I am trying not to worry about that either. I am trying to get in a positive mindset.
My son went to school this morning. He got mad at me yesterday when I tried to sit down and talk to him to explain that he is going to have to help my husband with the things around the house. Long story I won't get into, bottom line is he told me that he didn't want to be there today like we had all planned on-he wanted to go to school-maybe that is where he should be. Someone will go get the kids and bring them up there for a little while this afternoon. My aunt will spend the night with me tonight at the hosp. I am suposed to come home tomorrow.
I wish you all a good day with low levels of pain. I will try to post tomorrow sometime. I sure miss my morning coffee I guess there are many who remember that.
