I've made it home safe and sound. Just had a half of cup of tomato soup with crackers and sipping on some Gatorade (low-sodium). Thanks to everyone who has prayed, sent well wishes and good vibes. Please keep them coming my way!
I've waiting to post. The docs and nurses and other survivors had told me it's about 3 days of hell but then in the 4th you feel great. Other than some soreness and being over tired I am doing pretty dang well. I have thought of you all each and every day. I do plan to share a day by day account of my journey, just wanted my heart family to know I'm alive and I'm well!
Hi Guys, i had a serious meltdown last night which went into a hard core anxiety attack, i had a good cry and now i feel much better. Especially, after reading all the comments on this page. you guys are seriously my HEART family. i plan to do pics and updates from the hospital and i'm hoping to also do a video journal starting from my wake up in ICU. Hopefully i will be able to share that here. i honestly, cant tell you how much the video journals on you tube have helped me, again thank you for all the prayers and good vibes!!!! 2 days and counting. xoxo ~W
My pre-op extravaganza turned into two days of tests, finally done as of yesterday and now ready for surgery on Wednesday! Somehow, now that the pre-op is over i am serene and calm about the surgery itself. i have been watching a lot of you tube journals online. I am hopeful. The nurse at one pre-op appointment told me that i would go thru hell for three days, and she said on the fourth i will feel better than ever...i can get thru three days. I am strong. I'm an only child, my father and italian grandmother, Nonna, raised me after my mother left when i was two. My father died 4 years ago in December.
