The Day has Arrived

It’s around 9:30 in the morning and I’m sitting in a hospital side room waiting to be called. I’ve seen the anaesthetist, the consultant and various nurses. I have on one of those delightfully attractive hospital gowns, mine is particularly special as it has no tapes half way down the back so my bum is hanging out! I also have some support stockings to top off the look!

There was some confusion as to whether I will be kept in tonight but it now appears that I will be.

I’m very afraid. Not of the outcome but of the process itself.

I had a bit of a shock earlier when I was asked if I would consider a local anaesthetic instead of a general. I think I was as forceful in my shock and horror of this suggestion as I could be without resorting to profanities!

So, this is it. I’ll write more after the surgery.

About Mel Griffiths

I live and work in Nottingham, England and am blind. This blog is often centred around things that happen to me because of being blind. This is my space to write and sometimes people will disagree with what I write, but its the one place I have in which to be frank and honest. I also like to reflect on the funnier side of life from time to time.
