Pre-op

I have to go under the knife in a couple of hours for a minor, non-life-threatening procedure that, if all goes well, will ruin my elegantly rolling gait and my best shot at getting a job at the Ministry of Silly Walks.

I would have told you all about this, but I never know how to bring up the topic. By the way, they're cutting me open next week seems so blunt, and Mommy's going to visit the place where the doctors work doesn't even work on my kids. Also, I was hoping to get out of it for a few more weeks, but my loved ones ganged up on me and started threatening me with things like wheelchairs and robotic limbs.

I'll check back in a day or two; whenever they let me out of bed or leave so I can sneak out. Don't worry, I'll be fine, and if by some astronomical chance I'm not, I'm leaving the weblog to my cats. Be nice to them.

  2. Get better soon! I've been under the knife a few times in my life for knee things so if it's something to do with that you have my sympathies (you have them anyway).

  4. Hey, good luck.

    I had an op myself a little while ago so I know where your head probably is right now.

    Take care of yourself, don't try to do too much too soon afterwards, just focus on getting over the procedure.

    You'll be fine.

  5. Good luck, S.

    We'll be looking for some amusing stories, ala Pam Ayres poem Me Op.

    In the meantime, rest up; and you can always get a job at the Ministry of Nearly Silly Walks But Got Fixed.

  8. Many prayers for a smooth procedure and speedy recovery. Take all the time you need and don't feel one speck guilty about it.

    And though you probably won't see this before your surgery, just know that I finally finished all the StarDoc books, including Rebel Ice, and I LOVE them. Thank you for writing them! =)

  32. Ugh. Surgery. Only time I went under the knife was for an incarcerated umbilical hernia. I was under the influence of so much demerol, I could scarcely give consent; and before I knew it, I'd woken up with an innie! Hope your experience is as positive as mine.

    Medical story contest at my place, by the way ;) This should be a piece of cake for you, Sheila!

  33. Oops. I mean my place, not that old frog's place.

  34. It seems everyone's said it already, but wishing you the best for a speedy recovery. Hopefully Stuart's op has used up all the bad karma for this month and everyone else will be just fine...

    Here's praying for an easy procedure and recovery. Good luck with it.

    I had my first surgery at the beginning of this month, wisdom teeth, and I always send good vibes now when I hear anybody's got to go near anastesia. >.<
