Spin, spinning, spun


This is going to be a very disjointed post but I want to write how this day has been for me. My brain is all over the place because of my surgery. I KNOW it sounds lame to worry about a mere carpal tunnel procedure that lasts all of TEN MINUTES but I have never had any sort of surgeries. I pushed two kids out in relatively short amounts of time and only needed but one stitch. I have never needed anesthesia. I have never broken a bone. (Ok, my pinky toe but that doesn’t even count). I just don’t know what to expect.

I had dreams I couldn’t find the hospital. Which is laughable because I have been there before and it’s only about three blocks from my house. I dreamt I couldn’t find the room to go to and I was running late. I slept like crap.

A nurse called and ran me through all kinds of stuff, the most important thing being to wash with this antibacterial soap stuff. No biggie. I called a specific number to find out my time. I have to be at the hospital by 5 AM and my surgery is slated for 7:30. The plan is that I will drive myself and Ash will take care of getting the kids to school. I see no other way to run this, honestly. When they’re dropped off, he’ll come back and bring me home; we’ll get my car later.

I tried to go about my day normally: I got Batgirl #19 and I am writing the review now. I ordered books for Summer and Fall classes because on Monday, the schedules go live and to be in compliance with the state, books needed to be… on the books. I ate a slice of pizza because I am being a good little lapsed Catholic and abstaining from meat. I’m cleaning my office so when I get back Monday, I don’t feel like my life is spinning out of control. Classes resume and I will attempt to continue normal functions, even with my hand all bandaged.

I will be so glad when this is all over. Mostly, I look forward to being able to run without my hand asleep. And writing. I can’t wait to write in my journal without severe pain. I actually really love the act of handwriting. There’s something very sensual about dragging the tip of a pen across paper.

OK SO… I just got a call from the surgeon’s office…the guy who was going to perform it had a family emergency so I have to reschedule with one of the other surgeons and then reschedule the surgery. This is such bullshit. I was ready; this week works because I have no classes. SIGH.

You know how they say things happen for a reason? Yeah, I just don’t see it yet. Dear world, please present said reason soon. Kthxbye.

  1. Oh I know how you feel. I was supposed to have a procedure for a kidney stone, and wouldn’t you know it, I passed the darn thing the day before and ended up being rescheduled for two day later (to take care of teh rest of teh little boogers that were living in my kidney). Rescheduling sucks. Hope you can get it taken care of soon.
