Yesterday I met with Dr. Katzen for the first time in person. The appointment went great and I went away really feeling at ease about the surgery. The recovery is what I am dreading now. I am going to be out of commission for quite some time. But it will all be worth it!
So tomorrow I have to be at the surgical centre at 6am. Once the surgery starts, I will be under for up to 9 hours. After surgery, I will be transported by ambulance to Pearl Recovery Retreat. A fancy-schmancy recovery place that is in a hotel. I will be there for two nights and Matt is also able to stay with me. Then we will return back to our rental suite where I will recover for two weeks in a very lovely remote controlled lazyboy recliner.
Fingers crossed that everything goes according to plan and that I heal very well after surgery. We will have internet access at the surgical centre (well Matt will) and also at the recovery centre. I am sure there will be heaps of updates!
My inbox has been filled with well-wishes and I am very thankful for the incredible support I have. Thank you everyone!
