WOYWW #400

Okay, this is written early, and scheduled, as my desk will be pretty much empty and bare. The reason being, I told you all last week that my surgery date was the 7th of Feb. Friday morning I had a call from my surgeons secretary, and immediately thought ' Here we go', as I said, they have a reputation for cancelling ops. However, she went on to say that if I was willing to be seen by another surgeon, one of them had a slot open up in their theatre list for Wednesday the 1st, and did I want it. So I said yes, just to get it over and done with. Means my surgery is a week early, and chances are I will be coming home before I was due to go in. So that's where I am by the time you are reading this.
But didn't want to miss the big 400 milestone,happening over at Julia's place, The Stamping Ground. and I will no doubt be able to visit over the coming days while I'm recovering.
 Doug will put up a post on here, probably sometime on Thursday, just to let you know how things went.
So, thats a short & sweet post from me, and I'll be seeing you soon. XxX
 EDIT: I just did a bit of research into my new surgeon, and seems he's actually the lead Thoracic surgeon for the team, so looks like I got an upgrade!

Anne said...

Hi Shaz, I didn't join in last week so hadn't realised you'd got the new date and an upgrade :-) Hope all goes well and you are soon home and recover quickly. Hugs Anne x #12

We are all thinking of you today and hope that your 'upgraded' surgeon does a fantastic job. I had the same experience when I had my thyroid removed - the hospital would literally ring and give me a day's notice to go in for surgery (which is impossible when I have the animals to sort out and my mum needed to come and stay to help out). This happened twice until I told them I needed at least a few days to get sorted. Such a relief to think that you will be home before the original scheduled date. Ali x #5 currently!
