Well, I didn't get my shower, but I did get A CALL!
In the hospital now, all checked in and waiting. I've changed into my lovely gown, accessorized with a fabulous paper bracelet, and had lots and lots of blood drawn. Next stop: EKG, chest x-ray, and then down to the OR for final prep.
So far everything looks good, but I think we all know by now that it ain't over until it's well, over. My sister will of course be online to keep you all updated (although she herself is not at the hospital this time around thanks to a yucky cold virus). I promise that you guys will be as in the loop as we can manage.
As for now, this all seems kind of routine at this point. Guess there is an advantage to three dry runs (well, two dry and one "damp") after all. As always, prayers/light/good thoughts/and positive energy are all greatly appreciated.
I am so thankful for all of you, honestly. Hopefully next time I post it will be through a fun drug-addled haze...amusing for everyone!
- I am a 33-year-old wife, sister, daughter, friend, law school graduate, CFer, lifelong student of public service, blog writer, patient, Sagittarius, reader, Top chef fan, double-lung transplant recipient (twice!), and dog owner living in Colorado's beautiful Mile High City. I love all things colorful, funny, inspiring, or needlessly sarcastic. I share my city with about 2,500,000 other remarkable people, share my disease with 70,000 other beautiful souls, share my life with some unbelievable family and friends, and share my apartment with one very handsome guy and one really fat mutt with a kick-butt personality. We make it work.
