Surgery Tomorrow

Filed Under: Gifs, Life

Remember when I wrote that post about “getting shocked tomorrow?” Yeah, I forgot about it, too. And forgot to respond to Julie’s comment. Because I suck. Sorry, Julie.

Tobuscus God dang it!


I’ll get to the hand thing here in a sec but first I want to talk about the raging headache I’ve had all day. I’m talking the most horrible hangover headache you’ve ever had but without the debauchery the prior night. A hangover headache without a reason is doubly wrong, don’t you think?

What happens when you make the mistake of telling your five and seven-year old you have an excruciating headache and won’t you stop trying to off each other in the middle of Target, please and thank you?

Basically they turn their attention to you with a vengeance and you instantly regret ever complaining.

On to the hand. 

Tomorrow is mah surgery. Nothing to eat or drink after midnight since my hand might puke whilst under local anesthesia and aspirate its vomit. Or something. Robert Downey JR eye roll

My surgeon, who is one cool ass dude, mentioned something about being able to give me something to “relax” me and I said

James 'Jim' Moriarty Sherlock OMG yes

I gotta tell you though, I left CAD’s (cool ass dude) office all angsty. I didn’t know why. All I knew was I wasn’t satisfied with the whole surgery thing and was basically an adult version of a petulant child. 

And then Tucker was all like

Sherlock take a deep breath calm down

If your brain is all wackety and you haven’t a clue as to what exactly is going on with your feels, just bitch to Tucker for about twenty minutes without taking a breath and he’ll figure it all out for you. 

He (rightly) surmised my issue wasn’t with the actual surgery (I’ve had three unrelated surgeries already so I’m a pro at this stuff and stuff.) but with the fact I have other stuff going on and the general attitude is, “Oh, well…we’ll fix the right hand first and then the left and then we’ll get to your shoulders and deal with those toes that have been going numb since you were little as we make our way down.” No one (other than us) seems to wonder what’s the root cause.

Everyone else is just looking at the symptoms but not the overall picture.

So what’s one to do?

Attempt to be less petulant, hope for happy drugs and have surgery!

    Good luck tomorrow. I understand the frustration of telling the doctors a story of our concerns and have them see it in isolated “oh we can fix that” manners. I hope that you can find some good “they did what?” meds to help.

  2. How are you going to text me with one hand? HUH? (Make Tucker let us know you’re fine, which you will be, but confirmation never hurts)

  3. whoa. that was fast. We’re you just at the doctor learning about this surgery??? I saw that you’re done and you look happy. Enjoy the “cast.” Sign it for me, mkay?
