Teagen's surgery is this Tuesday but we leave tomorrow for pre-surgery testing and other preparations. Last night I totally lost it being so worried about what's going to happen. I tried to sleep but kept waking up every 45 minutes or so and I'd immediately start thinking about the surgery.
I've never felt so out of control of my thoughts before. I've read everything there is to know about what they're going to do during the surgery and the risks and recovery involved. Even though I know it's unlikely that anything bad will happen, I still can't help fearing the worst.
I've gotten so much information and strength from this site since April so I figured I'd better come back one more time before surgery and ask - how did you make it through? How did you not go crazy with worry before, during and after the surgery?
Thanks for any advice you have.
