Big sigh of relief that it’s finally Friday and I have the day off. I’ve got so much to do at home besides the cleaning, laundry and grocery shopping I need to drag out the Christmas decorations and throw them up. I planned to get all this done before the surgery, but all of a sudden I have 4 days left and I work 3 of them. Crap.
Tomorrow night we are going to a yearly party that our friends have. We all used to see each other more often, but with lives, kids, etc it’s getting to be once a year at this party. I’m wondering if I can get away with wearing my Yoga pants instead of my jeans. I know, it’s a little casual but it’s not like they’re sweatpants. Wearing sweatpants would be really bad. No offense if you’ve worn sweatpants to a party, really. Wearing jeans for any length of time is extremely uncomfortable because of all the stupid pain I’m in. I guess I’m just gonna do it, why the hell not? If anyone comments about my casual attire I’ll just tell them to talk to my ovary. Besides, with the percocet I won’t really care anyway.
A friend of mine from work mentioned that I should talk to my husband and let him know what was okay and not okay for the doctor to do on Friday. In case something other than we discussed needs to be done. I had this holy crap moment as it dawned on me that I could wake up as a man because my husband wouldn’t know what could or couldn’t be done. I mentioned this to him last night.
Me: When I have the surgery next week something might come up that the doctor needs to ask you about.
Him: What? She’s not going to need to talk to me.
Me: She might, you never know. If some kind of a decision needs to be made.
Him: She can make it. She’s the doctor.
Me: Ya, but she won’t.
Him: Well you better make up a list of possible questions and your answers so I have a cheat sheet.
A cheat sheet?? Is this some kind of test?
Elle’s Cheat Sheet
1. One ovary removal….okay. Both ovary removal…not okay
2. Full hysterectomy (where they take out all my girl parts) not okay.
3. gender reassignment (where they make me a man) Really not okay
4. breast augmentation…No, you’re not getting away with that one buddy!
Hope this helps.
