I went back to work Friday and picked up some hours on Sunday so I can save as much of my paid time off as possible. I am so ready to have this surgery, though. I go to see Dr. Maass (the endocrinologist) at noon on Monday and will hopefully know something Monday afternoon about my thyroid levels. I decided that I’m going to go on the liquid diet starting Sunday night in case I can have the surgery as early as Wednesday.
This whole thing with working and trying to get the surgery done has been pretty taxing on me. I feel like I need to get away from work and dadgummit, it looks like it’s going to take a major surgery to accomplish that! I hope that I heal quickly so the last week of my leave will be more relaxing.
