Random thoughts on surgery [Jan. 16th, 2003|12:25 pm]

It’s to be the knife, Monday afternoon, because despite my pleading there is no room at the inn on Friday.

This will be my first surgical scar. My first stitches, other than for wisdom teeth and episiotomies. The first time I will allow someone to cut into my skin.

It’s kind of creepy to contemplate.

The scar will be small—they’re good at these things now. But it will be on the outside of my shoulder. It’s trivial to worry about this, but I hope it’s healed up and not too vile looking by the time the Barrister’s Ball rolls around in early March. I have this wonderful spaghetti-strap dress that I want to wear.

I wanted the weekend to recover from surgery, since class starts on Tuesday. Not getting that. Will probably take Tuesday off from work, maybe Wednesday.

Much pain. Not liking this. No energy to be contemplative – having to work to be simply upright.

*HUG*

Yes, lovie, the scar will be small. They do lots of internal work with scopes and things now. Trust me on this. I've seen it. :) I am sure it will be healed in time for March--and take, vitamin E, I believe, to help with the healing.

*snuggle* I feel for you here. Been there--oh, 4 times now, for my eyes--it's scary. (and twice was in the 80's when it was damn barbaric!) But, the nurses will all be nice, you'll see, and everyone will take good care of you.

Sooner done, sooner well. I AM sorry it couldn't be earlier. But take the time you need to heal you. I am sure others will understand, given the circumstances! You certainly CAN be excused from classes on the first or second day--email the profs and tell them why. Hell...it's not til the second week really that rosters are completed and turned in, at least at my old school. SO keep in contact and all will be well.

On work--hey, you just impressed everyone with Gini Super Skillz(tm)! Again--I am sure you'll get slack for the injury. You are no good to anyone in pain, unable to concentrate.

*HUGS--gently*

All will be well soon, love. Healing will happen.

You are loved.

Thanks. I'm feeling very worn down tonight.

Remind me to smack you both when I have two good arms.
