Well, it’s about two days until my surgery. I’ve reached the point of mild anxiety. I’ve never had surgery before, and while plenty of people have told me what to expect, I have no idea what to expect. Someone else’s experience doesn’t really prepare me for what my experience will be, or how I’ll feel after, what my pain level will be, or how the anesthesia will affect me. So I just want it to be Thursday already so I can get this done and over with.
In the meantime, I haven’t started editing Ravaged yet. I had a last minute house guest last week, a friend I hadn’t seen in a year, so spending time with her took precedence. Plus I’ve been cramming in any other things I need to do before surgery, such as organizing, laundry, and cleaning so I’ll have peace of mine from a tranquil home environment. But maybe the distance from the manuscript will prove useful and give a fresher eye for edits.
I hope to get a bit of editing done while I’m recovering. Or maybe I’ll start something entirely new while I’m on pain meds to see what kind of silliness comes out. I’m mostly joking about the last…I’m sure I’ll be sleeping more than anything.
I’ll post an update as soon as I’m able after surgery, but don’t worry of you don’t hear from me for a few weeks. I do look forward to getting lots of sleep!
