Kari B - good luck for surgery tomorrow

Posted by carynz on 12/02/02 at 10:47 (101591)

hi Kari.

Just looking at my calendar and thinking tomorrow is Dec 3rd and y ou will be having your surgery. Hope you aren't too nervous going into this and that all goes well with the procedure. I took the liberty of printing your outline of treatment plan so that I have something to go on when I see yet another surgeon for my own consultation. I was able to get an appt. for this Thursday Dec 5 with a doctor in Vancouver that Dr. Ed Davis recommended (off the ask doctors site) and he is able to see me for a surgical consultation and then will go from there I guess.

Will look forward to hearing from you here once you are ready to share with all of us.

Thinking of you,

Cheers Carynz

Caryn and Sharon,
Thank you so much for the well wishes!! I am so nervous today I'm afraid I won't be able to sleep tonight. I'm getting everything ready for my recovery... gathering extra pillows and blankets for elevating, bought a book for reading, going to buy frozen peas this afternoon for icing, and trying my best to do some relaxation techniques. The minutes just seem to be inching by... I will definitely be glad to have it all over with and will post here as soon as I possibly can afterwards. My laptop will be moved to my bedroom tonight so that I can keep up on email and such. Thanks for all the wonderful support from everyone on this board. I'm not so sure I could have gotten through the last few months (and kept my sanity intact) without all of you! Again thank you!!
Kari

I will be remembering you as you have your surgery tomorrow, Kari. I know you are nervous ~ and I think that is perfectly normal ~ but I hope it helps to know that many good wishes are going your way. We will be anxious to hear how it goes for you.

I was able to finally get into my e-mail and read your message this afternoon. Then I had to take my daughter to dance class and just got home. I will write to you in the next day or so; I haven't forgotten!

Take care, and may God be with you.
Suzanne :-)

As I write you're still asleep (I hope!) and I'm wishing you all the very best for your surgery and your healing.
