Pre-surgical update (From HELL!) ;)

First and foremost, thanks so much to all of you for your wonderful prayers praying-kittenand well wishes. It means the world to me.

Surgery is in 19 hours and to be quite frank, I’m a wee bit scared. So any additional prayers or healthy vibes you guys can send up would be so appreciated!

After getting some more tests (thank God all the blood work came back great! Yay!) my doc said that she didn’t feel comfortable just having a surgical assistant in with her since (this is not a direct quote but is pretty much what she said), “My insides are so fucking fucked.”  😉 So, she’s having a second surgeon join her in the operating room.freaky-kitty

Yeah, she was far more delicate than that, awesome doc that she is, but that was the jist.

Seems as though all my prior surgeries have made everything such an adhesion-covered mess that they could not even SEE my ovaries during the internal ultrasound (read that as being viciously fucked by a cattle prod…ouchy!!!), they found 8 tumors and tons of uterine muscle lesions. Plus, with my last cattle prod adventure, they told me my bowel had grown into my left ovary and now share a blood supply.

I guess it’s good that my innards all get along so well…they place nice together! 😉grumpy-cat-no

Anyway, it looks like this is going to likely be a complicated mess and while my doc is still hopeful and is going to peek at everything first by putting a little camera in my bellybutton (which is seriously like 9 feet deep!) and looking around, she thinks it’ll probably end up being an open surgery. OUCH!

And she’s going to go in through my old zipper incisions, which is good in that I’ve already been opened up there 3 times already, but bad in that vertical incisions take so much longer to heal and they hurt like a mo fo.

I’m doing my very best to prepare everything for the smoothest recovery possible and trying VERY hard to keep all my fears to myself as not to scare my family as I’m sure they are nervous enough, but I had to get it out somewhere. Being opened up like this a 4th time is truly terrifying, even though I’m an old pro at it.

Surgery is a 7:30 on Tuesday and luckily I’ll be at a great hospital, Scottsdale Shea, that has a great reputation, so, I’d be so very thankful, from the bottom of my heart, for any extra love you can send my way around that time.

Much love to all of you!!! XOXOXXO

Oh, and I’ve decided to bring two teddies with me! Gotta have critters to cuddle! 😉

  1. hey sweetie, I brought stuffed animals too when I had my surgery!!!! I know that you will do just fine! Being scared is normal too, but sending lots of love and hugz your way!!!! Sounds like you have super duper doctors to get you through it! Let us know how you are doing once you are out and feeling much better! Love ya, Lisa and Bear


    • You brought teddies too! 🙂 I’m so glad I’m not the only one!! 🙂

      Thanks for the love and prayers, sweetiepie. Sooooo very appreciated.

      My doc will hopefully kick ass. I was very relieved when she said she was going to bring in a 2nd surgeon. I mean, freaked cause she thinks she has to, but relieved that she’ll have a 2nd pair of hands in there.

      I’ll let ya know how I’m doing as soon as the drugs wear off enough for me to type! 😉

      Luv ya!!! XOXOXOXXO

    • “Thor…” LOVE THAT!! 🙂 He’s definitely my Thor! 🙂

      I promise to use every minute of downtime possible to heal. I’m not moving a muscle that I don’t have to. And with my sister flying out to help, she’s going to help the hubs keep me nice and rested.

      Thanks for the prayers and healing. Means the world. 🙂

    • Hi doll. You are so sweet.

      I’m on my way to feeling better. The last 4 1/2 months have been pretty damn hard, but I’m a trooper, dammit! 😉

      Thanks so much for asking after me. You are such an angel.
