Last night neither Mom nor I slept well. Between the two of us, I think we saw every hour of the night. But I only woke up with a yell once — my standard “I’m extremely anxious” subconscious response, which Ian just loves — so that’s probably a win.
We head over to the hospital in a few minutes. Pre-op stuff starts at 7:15, with the surgery scheduled for 9:15. I guess it takes two hours of prep?! We’ll see.
And, in related news, the doctor’s office gave me this special soap to wash with before the surgery. I had to wash with it in a shower last night and then another shower this morning. I’m probably the cleanest I’ve ever been in my entire life — but odds are I’ll get even a little cleaner once they start prepping the surgery site. Normally I don’t stress about cleanliness, aside from normal hand-washing recommendations, but in this case, I’m 100% on board.
