Surgery in a few days

Well, I got a call the other day and I am scheduled for surgery on WEDNESDAY (the 17th). Nice notice, eh?
I had to get all my work shifts covered and figure out everything so fast!

I am pretty nervous. I think this one is....thoracotomy? I swear my surgeon said some word that started with a B or something but it was so long ago I can't remember. So basically, I will find out the details for sure on Monday when I go in for Pre-Op.

I wasn't expected such short notice...I've been on the wait-list for almost a year haha.

Anyway, a week in the hospital, couple months recovery. Hopefully I can get EI sick pay! Luckily I just paid off my card so I mostly have to worry about my student loan payments.

I am a bit nervous. I bought myself a cheap laptop to use while in the hospital since all the other times I had my school laptop. Sadly, I don't have blue cross coverage anymore so I will most likely have to stay in a ward. Not that it is a HUGE deal, but last time I had to stay in a ward temporarily, there were 4 old men and I saw waaaaaaaaaay too much of them haha. Of course, in my semi-private I saw a bit too much of my roommate as well, but at least you have some privacy. I asked how much the semi-private and private rooms cost and it's $130/night for semi and $160/night for private. How crazy is that? I could stay at a fancy hotel in the city for that much :P Oh well!

I hope it all goes well..

Thanks for all the support over the years :P

Hope everything goes well. Surgery is no fun, but once it's over it's nice to think things should be better.

Keep us posted!
