Talked to the doc again

As the bitch (aunt flow) is winding down now, I realize I’m getting closer to surgery. I had an absolutely miserable and painful weekend. It’s even worse when you can’t take anything before surgery. I am so thankful for my heating pad.
I called the doctor today to tell him my concerns and wishes. I flat out told him I’d like my uterus removed but wish to keep both ovaries. I explained that last September, he removed a fibroid that was partially in and out of my uterus, and if that should be the case again, he can take it out.
It’s such a bitter reminder every month that I can’t have children. It’s bad enough to bleed, but all the pain? What for? I told him that I was miserable all weekend and because of surgery, I couldn’t take anything.
I trust him to do what needs to be done. He said he’d look over my chart again and then see me Thursday morning at the hospital.
I’m planning to stay overnight anyway. Tomorrow after work, I’ll wash my sheets and vacuum. I think I’ll go in my yoga pants but bring a dress just in case. And wear boots so I just have to out them on with no effort.
I have a lot to do at work before I go and tomorrow’s my last day.
I’m starting to get nervous.
