So, it's been kind of crazy lately. All of this stuff is rushing up on me
and while I'm not scared, I am definitely not looking forward to getting this done.
Yesterday, I went to the doctor and we talked about what's going to happen before and
after surgery, and even what's happening during. It was all stuff I already knew, but
it was nice to hear about all the stuff that's gonna be hooked up to me, since what I
read really didn't mention that.
While we were talking yesterday, my mom mentioned to my surgeon that I have trouble
with getting myself to STOP bleeding. We'd never had health care before so we never
really did anything about it, though we knew it was some form of clotting problem. So
tomorrow, I'm getting out of school early to get some blood testing done.
Then, on Wednesday, I have to go get a BUNCH of stuff done. I'll be at the hospital
literally all day. I'll be getting x-rays, having more blood work done, I'll have to
watch a video, meet with the anesthesiologist, and get fitted for these tights that
help blood flow in my legs, just to mention a few! It's going to be really boring,
but thankfully my friend Germany is skipping school to come with me.
Oh yeah, and today, a friend of the family who's a tattoo artist promised me that
after I'm all healed from my surgery, he'll give me a free tattoo! Woo hoo!
