I need to go in on Friday for major surgery. I've never had major surgery before and a bit scared about it, especially the general anesthesia part. I've got a high tolerance for pain, so recovery doesn't bother me much.
I'll be in the hospital for about 4-5 days and have six weeks of recovery. Wont be able to lift or do much, so DH and DS are stepping up to keep the house and cook [It pays to have a chef for a son]
My mother is wonderful and going to care for me the first week home as her house is on one level and I won't have to do stairs. Plus, you can never beat a mother's pampering when you are sick no matter how old you are.
Please say a prayer that God will sustain me and remove my jitters, and for my Mother, hubby and son as they have to care for me while I'm out.
We're trying to have a baby, and this surgery will correct some things and hopefully by next year we will be expecting.
