8:00 am: checked in at Admissions, as instructed. After 10 minutes, was advised that I was supposed to report directly to outpatient services.
8:15 am: changed into my lovely hospital gown waiting patiently. I sm hopeful not to wait another hour+ this time. At least I am armed with iPhone and book… Of course, for some reason, I can’t get my blog to publish. Grrr…
8:37 am: figured out the publishing and spent 5 minutes chatting with nurse Cathy from last visit. Love her! She’s not my nurse today but she had some great ideas for me (her mom had breast cancer).
9:14 am: blood drawn. IV in. Nice conversation with Marsha (stage 1 breast cancer 2 years ago). Now waiting.
9:30 am: off to the OR.
12:45 pm: on my way home. When they took me back to pre-op, I saw a friend from high school. She was in the next bed. Kind of funny. Hung out for a while, saw the anesthesiologist and met with Dr Farrell. Had some nice nurses and before I knew it, I was done.
I am a little sore, a bit like a toothache. I’m looking forward to some Tylenol, lunch, and a nap. In that order.
