a pic of me 24 hrs before my attacks with my fabulous hair & fabulous faux lashes
On the night after Thurgood's birthday party I was awoken by an intense pain that radiated through my chest. I thought it was indigestion or gas..a bubble if you will. It reminded me of an intense hunger pain but high up. I thought nothing of it till the next day when I had a second episode while I was home alone with Thurgood and it really scared me.
I saw my doctor the next day and was sent off for labs and an ultrasound. All labs came back great, but I was but I knew it was coming when the call the next day came. As my MD said, if you are going to have something..have something you can fix. I had a few rather large gallstones -- which meant surgery.
Surgery? But I have the mandatory Naplex review at school. But I have my final research presentation.
Surgery? But I am to graduate from pharmacy school on June 11th. But my family will be in Florida from June 4th to June 10th.
Surgery? But I have boards to study for. But I have a new job I plan to start.
I spoke with my doctor and confirmed my wishes..my goal: I wanted to walk at my graduation on Saturday, June 11th.
Am I scared? ABOLUTELY.
Will I get through it? MOST DEFINITELY
Who do I need to hold my hand? EACH AND EVERY ONE OF YOU
I will keep you posted...just promise you will be there.
