Well.. There it is...
But I can't tell you for sure if I am really back yet or not...
Surprisingly enough.. after back and forths with the cardiologist..
(for clearance..cause this chickie's got a bad ticker)
A soon to be ex... so non supportive... a BACK stabber...
leaving me on my own to tackle this surgery alone...
I made it through!
We got a major snow storm the morning of surgery...
My gypsea pal and I somehow were able to manage through the craziness of snow crazy drivers..
Plows trying to run us over..and yes.. getting lost..
Then upon arrival... I am told we can't start yet..bc they are waiting STILL for clearance from my cardiologist..then.. they needed a valve from their sister hospital ..
ya know..."just in case.."
Well.. "JUST THE CASE WHAT?!!?"
I was told not to worry.. everything will just be fine..
Ok.. I worked the OR for years..do NOT try to BS me.....
I also knew..they were top notch.. and doing all this.. SO
nothing would happen to me!
But the strangest of strange happened that day...
#1: the date 1/11/11
(these are master #'s in numerology..also "the pirates"
#2: Anesthesiologists name....Katerina (same as my daughter!)
#3: My circulator in the OR, Jose... is verifying my info.. states..
"OMG! your birthday is the exact same as my wife's.. month, day and year!
#4: When taken into the OR... I hear them call out a number..
So I am like.."Did you just clock me in..?"
Ok... daughters bday is 10/9
uuummm.. wonder if the numbers were working for me...
And I think they were... Me..Miss scaredy pants of the OR..
went out like a light..Knowing
Everything's going to be All Right!
So.. I am BACK home.. Missing some of my L-5 vertabrae.
a huge chunk of a disc..
I feel like a puppeteer is pulling behind me....
And trying not to over do it!
Thanks for all the sweet comments..
and well wishes...
We'll see how this turns out..
