In just two more days, I’ll be having outpatient surgery to repair an umbilical hernia that is causing me all sorts of serious health problems. I can’t wait!
I’ve been fortunate enough to have a wonderful primary care doctor who has gradually changed my opinions of medical professionals. Every referral she has made for me has been of a doctor of equal competence and compassion — skilled and thoughtful human beings with good minds and good hearts. It’s amazing.
The surgeon I’m scheduled with on Friday morning fits that description perfectly and, thus, I feel perfectly safe. I know all the terrible things that can go wrong with anesthesia and sharp knifes and tiny germs, but there’s no point in dwelling on that information.
I made an informed and careful decision to go ahead with this much needed repair work and so I refuse to scare myself. I’ve got my support team at home all ready, work stuff is all covered and I’m eager to get this done.
It will probably be a few days before I feel well enough to post again.
As you can see from the picture, I’m leaving my computer in good hands.
I wish everyone a safe and happy week ahead.
