4 Days to D-Day

Well, I am four days away from having my MOH’s procedure. I have tried to come up with a solution for everything I can possibly encounter during my recovery:

Leave: I have three weeks of leave on the books for the worst case scenario. I am placing bets with my boss now. I say I will need one week and he thinks I will need two. We will see who wins.

Medical Supplies: I have gotten all the medical supplies that the patient care sheet said to get. Aquaphor, gauze pads, tape, silicone strips and Tylenol. Does anyone really even use Tylenol? I might as well eat M&M’s. Oh yeah, I got some of those too. πŸ˜‰

Additionally, I have gotten a BCozzy. It holds your head upright when you are sleeping. Apparently, I will have to sleep sitting up for a while for swelling so this will do the trick. It’s actually pretty comfortable.bcozzy

Housework: This long weekend has afforded me the opportunity to get stuff in order so I don’t have to deal with it after surgery. Laundry done, check. Dishes done, check. Bathroom clean, check.

Food: Thankfully my Hubs is good about going to the store when I need him too. So when I am feeling sorry for myself and need more ice cream, he is Johnny on the spot. πŸ™‚

Homework: I am starting a new class this week so I am getting all my assignments done now so there will be very little due after surgery. But I am not worried too much because it will give me something to do afterward.

I am nervous, scared, and anxious. I am not going to lie. I just want this to be over with. I am not sure what the outcome is going to be, but it is what it is. There isn’t anything I can do about it now. I am still looking for a one and done phase on surgery. Cut once, say you got all, and send me on home. Reality says I think it will be more than that. I have a new area that bleeds all the time below the biopsy spot, so I think that the doctor will have his work cut out for him. Cut out. I kill myself sometimes. πŸ™‚

If you can’t laugh, you will just cry. I am choosing to laugh.
