Countdown Is On

Sorry for being so distant. It’s not you it’s me. My thoughts lately have been so scrambled that trying to write them down seemed like a daunting task. My second round of surgery happening so soon after my first really threw me for a loop. The first time around I was more anxious than nervous. This time however I am extra nervous. The days leading up seem to be flying by and I am running out of time.

Since I know what to expect this time around with all of the pain, I am dreading Monday. The complications I had during my last surgery will hopefully be avoided this time however. I found out while reading the surgical notes during my pre-op, that a resident performed my epidural last time. This person had a problem and a staff member had to step in. The needle was placed too far in, and caused a small spinal fluid leak – which lead to my migraines during recovery. The other piece of important information we discovered is that my body cannot tolerate injected hydromorphone. This is what lead to my hallucinations – so again this time it should be avoided.

I am very hopeful now that these two issues should be resolved, and my hospital recovery should run much smoother.

Bring it on extended left hepatectomy.

    so very much wishing I could snap my fingers and make it all a bad dream – that not being possible I will only wish you what is possible – good luck and a speedy (easy) recovery as you step one step closer to putting with behind you for good!
