The Day Before Op Day
Hope today is a good one for you all.
My op is tomorrow and I'm still not quite believing its happening. As time gets closer, I get a bit panicky if I think about the op too much, so sticking at keeping myself occupied.
I went away for 5 days last week. Met some lovely people and saw some lovely things, including the Mary Rose Exhibition. If anyone hasn't already, if you get the chance to go, go. It is the best Exhibition of its kind I have ever seen.
I queried whether to go or not, but I was able to switch off from everything and have a good time. It was the professionals letting me down over agreements for telephone appointments that was stressing me out. I felt I couldn't move forward. In the end, I emailed the hospital telling them what I was doing, and asking them the questions I had. I asked for a reply by email. No reply. So I emailed whilst I was away telling them what I was doing, and asking them to get back to me by email if they had any concerns about what I was planning to do. No reply!! So if they refuse to operate tomorrow, I will be making a fuss.
Please keep in touch. I find it comforting knowing that people are with me.
