So the ‘big day’ finally arrives. I’m feeling ok at the moment but I’m sure that will change once we get into the car to leave. I’ve done as much as I can to prepare myself for this day, I just hope it’s enough, if not then I just have to muddle along and do the best I can. I would like to thank those of you who posted comments or sent me texts of support, these are really helpful and I’m sure it will help in my recovery if I know people are waiting for the next blog update.  Special thanks to Steve who is my rock, I’d have never got as far without him, and I’m sorry if I turn into a grumpy cow today.

I’m not afraid of the surgery, even staying awake isn’t bothering me, however I am afraid of the recovery. The long journey to hell is about to begin so wish me luck and I hope to blog soon…
