Just a quick, end of week, update…
I met with the new surgeon yesterday and I am on his schedule for Tuesday. So this process is back on track!
Tuesday will be my laparoscopy. I am nervous about it. Probably more nervous than I was the first time I did it. I don’t know why but I just am. I think I have so many more expectations surrounding this time. Also more complications…
First of all, just getting this scheduled was a pain. Getting canceled with the first doc and having to be referred to someone completely new and establishing care. Super annoying.
But the bigger issue is what to do with my 2 year old. I don’t know how early I will need to check in. I wont know until the day before. This makes it tricky to figure out child care. If it’s an early morning time I may not be able to drop her off to daycare before I need to be checked in. Eric has to drive me, obviously, so I don’t know what to do with her. Worst case scenario I suppose she will come along and wait in the waiting room with Eric. I hope it doesn’t come to that.
I am only taking two days off of work (I need to save as many sick days as possible for the maternity leave because we suck at healthcare in the US). I hope this is enough time to feel well enough to come back. I have heard some people feeling fine the next day, others feeling like it took a month to get back to normal. Last time it wasn’t too bad, so fingers crossed….
Anyway… just wanted to give an update on where I was in the process. Wish me luck and I will post an update sometime next week (provided I am feeling up to it)
