I have a date for surgery! May 23. I have a surgery date on May 23. I am ready for it to happen, and I'm glad to have a date. I'm freaking out a bit, but not for any particular reason. There have been many studies about PTSD after cancer. I don't claim that label, but I sure know where they are coming from. 90% of the time, I am fine. 10% of the time, I'm a basket case.
Anyway, I have surgery in Shawnee Mission, Kansas on May 23, and will be back to work the following week. Let's go. I'm tired of waiting. I keep chanting "May 23" because I'm happy to have a date. Between now and then, I have many appointments. There is one day in March that I have so many appointments that I had to take a vacation day!
Until May 23, I will just keep on keepin' on. Wake up, walk the treadmill, shower, go to work, come home, watch TV, go to bed...rinse, repeat. Just a few more months.
