Today is the day. I leave for the hospital in just a few hours. I am nervous, but I also look forward to today. Today is the day I get my life back. Today marks the start of recovery. Today is the beginning of my son getting his mom back.
All of the poking and prodding and x rays and tests, the feeling of being a medical experiment gone horribly wrong, has lead up to this much awaited day. While I do not look forward to the surgery itself, I do look forward to my life following it.
Here's to a new beginning and brighter future!
