Chassity - welcome to the forum! It sounds like you don't have long to wait. I had mine on September 22 but I had complications a couple of days afterwards and ended up with a temporary ileostomy which will be reversed on Monday, the 15th. My situation was rare, so we really don't need to go into that. I just wanted to say that you will be fine and try not to worry too much. I know easier said than done, right? Even with my complications I am glad I had it done and I would do it all over again! You will be so glad you had this done and you should be home in time to celebrate Christmas with your family.
I should be home by the time you go in but I will keep checking the forum for updates from you to see how you are doing when you get out.
I wish you the best of luck!!!
Let me know if you have any questions. I would be happy to help!
