Today’s the big day– hopefully the last surgery day. And you know me– what I’m wearing is deliberate and planned out. Of course, I need the maxi skirt for the compression gear that comes later. This hoodie has become a surgery staple for me. When you’re having breast surgery, you aren’t allowed to raise your arms over your head, so something that buttons or zips up is a necessity. This one is great because it’s light weight and loose fitting. Flip flops are easy, and the glasses (ugh) are a must. I think I need some new glasses.
I’ve got my bag all packed too. Less is more. I might add a book or single magazine, or maybe my little computer. But really, there are so many people coming and going, asking your birth date and why you are having surgery in your own words. (Maybe I’ll have to be creative on that one!) But there isn’t a lot of free time, so you don’t need a lot to fill it. But with surgery at 2pm and no food after midnight, I’m already starving, so I hit up the Rite Aid this morning so that I had a couple of favorite treats waiting for me as soon as I get the green light. (Will update on my facebook page this evening.)
