Op tomorrow

Well lucky that I never unpacked my overnight stuff from last week for my hospital visit. I have to see the consultant again and I'm going to feel very sheepish when I creep in the door and explain that I chickened out of surgery last Wednesday "cluck cluck, baaaa". From the clinic I will probably be sent to the trauma ward where I will have to wait hours in an uncomfortable chair then get changed in the loos - nice!

I'm not looking forward to having to fast again from 10.30 onwards although my appetite hasn't been great recently so maybe I won't notice. Not being able to drink is the killer though. My wonderful friend Jo is coming with me, a) to keep me company and b) to make sure I don't do a runner. I will have to wear a brace for 6 weeks and I don't know how much that will affect my fibro. Guess I'm about to find out.

Now I'm off to have a nice evening meal, pasta bakel followed by posh ice cream and I intend to enjoy every mouthful cos it will be the last thing I'm eating for a while.

Hopefully I'll still be here to post more inane ramblings after the op

Thanks Guys I'm feeling like I should have entitled the post 'The Last Supper' lol.

I hope that the op works because if not I have to have a more serious one months down the line and I don't fancy that cos it sounds unpleasant and involves taking a muscle from my neck/arm to keep the bone in place. Can't they just use aroldite lol

I've always wanted to change so much about my appearance, wanted a smaller nose, bigger eyes, longer legs etc. Now I'd just like to look how I did before the accident. Just goes to prove you should be grateful for what you have.
