Surgery Today.......Yipee!

Not looking forward to the pain! Granted, it is merely a tonsillectomy but I have heard nothing but horror stories about how bad it is going to hurt and how much longer it takes an adult to recover compared to a child. One point that was brought to my attention is that I will probably lose weight since I will be getting all of my nutrition through a straw and if that is true then it will all be worth it and perhaps it will help make the pain more bearable.

Guess I will be sleeping a lot and I am hoping that it won't be long before I am able to sit here at the computer and communicate with my friends because I truly doubt that I will feel like talking on the phone. I am so grateful that mom is able to help me with Griffin because if we were in Anchorage I don't think that I would be able to have the surgery.

I hope that Griffin will have an understanding of what is going on, that mommy needs to sleep because she is not feeling well. I am sure that mom will be able to help him to understand that mommy is not able to play with him or to take him places. Of course I will explain it to him again later before I go in and I certainly hope that he doesn't get upset because the sweet little guy has such a huge heart and we both are so very close, especially now that we have been home schooling.

It is so strange, that little twinge in my chest that lets me know that there is a certain degree of apprehension, as much as I try to not feel remains. It is just an outpatient procedure and really quite routine for the doctor but every time that I go under anesthesia it does tend to make me a bit nervous. I do not plan on going anywhere for a very long time because there is a higher purpose in my life and nobody can do it like I do!
