So, where were we?
Ah, yes, the Butcher and I were headed off to the surgeon for the initial consult.
Well, we went and I must say that I have been very, very pleased with everyone over at St. Thomas and find them all to be pleasant and professional. This doctor was no different. I filled out all of my paperwork and then the Butcher and I went back. I got my vitals taken, handed him Rachel’s list of questions, and before I could tell him about my foray into bizarre genital mutilations, the doctor was in there to basically tell me that he had consulted with the previous doctor and they were all in agreement that cutting me open was necessary.
And so I sat there and agreed that cutting me open probably was the best course of action and just as he was about to leave, the Butcher was all, “Wait, we still have three questions to cover on my list” and he proceeded to ask them.
I was disappointed to learn that I probably wont have a gruesome scar. The Butcher was disappointed to learn that there really aren’t any complications from this surgery more than just some bleeding that will resolve itself.
And the doctor was all, “Shoot, I could work you in tomorrow.” to which the Butcher was all “No! Absolutely not.”
This startled the doctor, but the Butcher explained that my parents want to come down for the surgery and there’s no way he’s going to spend his birthday cleaning the house so that it’s presentable for them.
So, next week it is.
Wednesday, I’ll go in for all the pre-surgery tests and bloodwork and anesthesiologist consult and then Thursday the 7th, I am first on his list of people to hack into. A couple of days after that, we’ll know what the biopsy results are.
I’m sure I’ll go through a variety of emotions, but right now? I just feel like kicking ass and taking names. I’m like a man with a new truck. I’m a kid with pockets full of candy. I’m a girl just properly smooched.
I have a plan and there’s something to be done and we’re going to do it, no more pussy-footing around.
And that feels really good and so I feel really good.
