I had my Covid pre-op test on Tuesday and it was very easy. Drive in at the hospital emergency room parking lot, 5 second swab in each nostril, receive pre-op shower kit and head home.
I've been getting the house clean, picked up my knee scooter and practiced getting into the house & bathroom. Loaded up my Kindle with distraction novels. Got the pain killer prescription filled, etc. We are as ready as we can be.
There is research that shows the more you know what to expect with surgery or an illness the better you cope with the negative parts and the faster you get better. Also research that show that being realistic leads to greater happiness. Hoping this proves true! Will find out after the surgery on Friday morning.
See you on the other side.
