It’s been brought to my attention that I have neglected this blog for a week. Thank you Bethany 🙂 Once you finish reading you’ll probably wished I stayed away a week more.
I’ve been doing all sorts of pre-surgery nesting. I’ve been mopping and cleaning and laundering. I’m hoping to get the house in as much order as possible so I can recover without worrying about how messy my house looks. I’d like to talk more about THE PROCEDURE, but when I think about it too much all that comes to mind is stitches in very sensitive areas that I don’t want to think about right now.
I can tell you that I love my doctor. She is very nice and answered all my question, even the stupid ones, without making me feel rushed. She even gave me a hug at the end of our last visit. Maybe because I told her that I tend to really freak out before any sort of procedure, but I do it silently so I won’t disrupt her office or anything. Who says that???
OH! Pixie is 100% rash free. I can’t believe that we have been dealing with a rash for almost a month. She had been on another medicine for about a week and there was marked improvement but then the rash started to come back again. I ran to the store and bought every ointment I could find to relieve her discomfort. Of course, the only person at the register was a teenage boy who raised his eyebrows to my cart full of Vagisil, Cortaid, Lotrimin EXTRA STRENGTH, and Benedryl. Whatever kid, just ring me up, STAT! I was able to knock out the rest of the rash with a mixture of Cortaid and Lotrimin.
I need to share my mammogram adventure. Have any of you had one? It is a trip and a half!
