The date for the cerclage has been set: Tuesday, May 19th. My heart is pounding and I feel sick to my stomach. That's 2 weeks from today. The nurse said that my surgery is scheduled for 9am and that I should check into the surgery center at 7:30am. I have to call tomorrow and set up my "pre-admission testing", which will take place prior to my surgery date. I am so nervous. Even though Dr. Bailey has gone through everything step-by-step, and we will see him this Thursday and next Thursday prior to the surgery, I am still so nervous. I feel like I have an understanding of what is going to happen and what the desired outcome is, but my fear of the whole thing (and, subconsciously, the fear that it wont work) are under my skin in the worst way.
We were hoping to go away for our "babymoon" to Virginia prior to the surgery. At this point, if we left on next Thursday and drove down after our appointment, we'd only really get to stay the weekend, which doesn't make a whole lot of sense. It's five hours each way. I called Peter and left him a message, asking what he'd like to do. Do we pick somewhere local to enjoy a few days?
Not sure yet...
But, we have a date. Whatever you do, be it pray, light candles, chant incantations or anything inbetween, please do it for us on the 19th. We can use all the help we can get.
