A little afraid as I sit alone in a hospital room waiting for an operation tomorrow to have a plueral effusion. I was so brave when I arrived at the hospital earlier today for pre op tests. I now feel very alone. Having met the surgeon last week she was confident the operation would help with the pain and the persistent cough I have developed over the last few weeks. I'm sure everything will go smoothly but that thought hasn't stopped my tummy doing somersaults. I can't begin to comprehend leaving my family should things go pear shaped, we are all fighting so very hard in this horrid battle. I've grown afraid of the dark since my diagnosis, how silly is that, so am going to sleep with the light on tonight as I don't have my husbands hand to hold. x
