Do i laugh or cry?

Posted , 8 users are following.

Hi ladies

Surgery planned for monday and ive just had a call from the hospital. They are not cancelling me however they are on black alert so: i have to go in at 7am as planned and there will be a bed meeting at 8am, they will let me know by 9am if im having my surgery or if i have to go home. It all depends on what hapens with emergency admissions over the weekend.

Not laughing or crying but, i am going to have a bottle of wine this evening!

    Hi brie,

    Fingers crossed that you don't get sent home and surgery does go ahead.

    This is the best time of year to go in for surgery, weather cold and damp so you won't be missing not getting out and about.

    Stock up on your favourite books and movies, organise everything you need during the day into nearby downstairs drawer and have some comfy pillows and throws for cosy corner of the sofa.

    Enjoy a good rest over the next few weeks relaxing with feet up and do all your Xmas shopping online. Stock up on wrapping paper, tape and cards over weekend as well as some candles to get you through the winter evenings.

    Good luck,

    Will all be over before you know it.

    LOTS of hugs Phyl x💖
