first i must say i just love my hand surgeon, dr seiler.
i feel very confident putting my hand in his hands!
he was actually on the cover of atlanta magazine last year.
so he is a cutie pie on top of being the best at what he does!
and i love my husband much, much more!
he actually left work to meet me at the appt this morning.
he knows that i am
a bit apprehensive about the whole thing and
that i would need his emotional support.
the surgery is scheduled for next wednesday at 10:30.
the doctor says the post op bandage will be the size of a boxing glove.
then i return the next day to get the bandage changed and start PT.
they do not waste any time. they want me to start using the hand quickly.
i am thinking that i may be able to start sewing sooner than i thought!
the doctor told me he would be playing country music while he did the surgery.
i am not a fan
but whatever it takes to make him comfortable is cool with me.
i will have 2 iv's: one for the surgery hand
and one for me.
he said it would be like having two martinis.
again, cool with me!
i will try to remember to get my husband to take a photo of my hand tonight.
just keep me in your prayers. i am a bit of a baby :(
