As I mentioned in a previous post, I have a critter named Ned. I have an update.
Insurance has approved the surgery. I’ll be having a laparotomy as opposed to a laparoscopy. Meaning, instead of small incisions, using a camera and then removing the critter through a small incision, I’ll be having a fully open abdominal surgery. In my case, it’s warranted, and is the safer option.
I have a pre-op appointment tomorrow, and then my surgery is a week from Friday on May 20th. I’ll be in the hospital 2-4- days. Then full recovery will be 6 weeks. The first 2 weeks at least will be no driving. And a full week off of work. On top of it, it’s the beginning of summer, will be the last week of school, and we’ll have to cancel our first of two trips we planned for the summer.
In other words, the household will be in chaos. I’m upset by this. And I’m nervous. And I’m overwhelmed. But Ned has got to be evicted.
