2 surgeries, not one!!!

I saw my surgeon this morning ~ It was just supposed to be a Q/A session, but in the last week, I have developed a new problem that needs to be treated before we can move on the the already scheduled major surgery.

Crap.

So, I will be having "come & go/same day/ambulatory" surgery first thing Monday morning. I won't go into details, but the surgery (despite being considered minor) has a very painful recovery period. We don't yet know if we'll have to push back the date for the other surgery (Oct. 8th); it will just depend on how extensive he needs to be on Monday.

I SOOOOOOOOOOOO did not need this!!!

I don't like feeling so durn needy (who does?!!), but once again, I'm going to ask for any and all good thoughts/vibes/ hugs you have to spare...
This wimpy little nurse is feeling lonely and scared and more than a little weepy and out of control right now...

Why is it that I'm more comfortable with the idea of taking care of a patient who has just had open heart surgery than I am with being on the "other side" of the bed rails?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!??!
