Medical adventures

This morning I'm headed over to the hospital for an outpatient procedure (hydrothermal ablation, by name) that will hopefully correct some problems I've been having. I will spare you the gory details; suffice to say that it has not been fun, and I'm looking forward to a cessation of hostilities.

I'm not especially nervous about the procedure itself. Okay, so it's not my idea of a good time; all things considered, I'd rather be any number of other places. However, the only part that really concerns me is the prospect of general anaesthetic, as I've been known to get seriously nauseous afterward. This thought does not make me happy. However, the doc assures me they have new and improved varieties of meds that make that much less likely than it used to be, so I'm hopeful we can avoid all that unpleasantness.

I'm scheduled to be in the OR around 12:30 pm, CDT. If you have a spare prayer lying around about then, I'd appreciate it. Thanks.

(Later. . . Home now. No nausea, just slightly crampy and quite tired. The doctor seems pleased, and I'm going to bed. Thanks, folks.)

A spare prayer?? Sorry, I don't have a spare one -- they are all being focused on you; no spares, but 100% originals.

Love you

Prayers your way. Let me know if it works -- my dr. has suggested this for me as well.
