Oh, and UC being the lovely beast that it is, decided to celebrate with a big accident while I was on the phone waiting to confirm my surgical time! Didn't even have a chance to think about it before it was out. I was sitting on the toilet in a mess when the lady came back on the phone to confirm the time. Ironic! LOL!
I had an accident too the day before my surgery. (actually I had several the days leading up to my surgery date) I was picking up my kids from their karate class when no sooner they hopped in the car and I headed for home, I just couldn't hold it and out it came while I was driving! Thankfully my kids didn't know what had just happened. At that point I just laughed and thought to myself that this will never happen again! You can now tell your UC to $%@& off!
