“It’s a DOT” . . . Part 3


Dr. G & Me

Surgery . . . July 3rd, 2012. My mom came up to stay the week with me. We had to arrive at 6:30am for surgery at 12:10pm . .  realllyyyyyyy 6:30am (I’m soooo not a morning person)!! Anywho, there were a couple of things they needed to do before surgery. When you have a biopsy they leave a tiny titanium marker in your breast for future reference as to where the biopsy was done. Before surgery they do a small procedure to help identify the marker for the surgeon. So after that, mom and I sat there and visited with the nurses coming in and out for the next few hours.

God is good and I actually felt very calm & peaceful (my blood pressure reading didn’t agree – LOL). Maurene & Pat came and stayed until the surgery. Everyone at the hospital was great – soooo friendly. Two of the nurses that came “in and out” both had previously dealt with breast cancer. They were very helpful and encouraging. Then the anesthesiologist came in, what a kick, Dr. H. There was so much laughter coming out of my room that I’m sure people down the hall were wondering, “what the heck”. I told him to make sure he gave me the good stuff. He said I wouldn’t even remember saying goodbye to mom and the girls . . . . . not so! I do remember saying goodbye to them, I remember being wheeled into the surgical room and I remember Dr. G holding my hand as I went under. Ahhhhh that was so nice of him. (Seriously, if you have to have someone cutting on you, he might as well be tall, dark and handsome!) 😉
