Quick Update

Alea iacta est, or words to that effect … Preliminaries and assessments are all done, and the surgery date is confirmed for April 11, and I will be admitted to Charing Cross Hospital the day before. Apprehensive as I am about my first ever trip to an operating theatre, prolonged stay on a hospital ward, after care, enema (time off work notwithstanding, you couldn’t easily sell this as a package holiday concept), the fact that everything has gone bizarrely well this year gives me faith. My transition is even running slightly ahead of what seemed a very optimistic Tarot reading that my friend did for me last year, which suggested I’d be “seen to” in the second half of 2018. Not to complain, if the Goddess sees fit to clear the schedule a bit early …

Tickets all booked, now just counting down the days. There will be some hard weeks ahead, but the future beyond is looking brighter than ever.

  1. A positive attitude is definitely the biggest asset. I can’t imagine the stress, excitement, anticipation–not just for the physical but the mental myriad of emotions about to happen. You are in my thoughts, and I’m so excited to follow your journey. Dawn

    • Thank you so much. 🙂 I’m the type of person who can’t help but imagine all the things that might go wrong, and I’m so used to reading stories of people’s miseries with appointments and surgeries being cancelled or delayed, but all the omens seem extremely good right now. I thought I would be apprehensive come the time, having never had surgery of any kind before, but as it approaches all my fears are of what might conspire to prevent it (though right now, none are looking likely). xxx

  2. I can imagine there is a lot of anxiety related to the date. It’s normal to be apprehensive before surgery! It’s also normal, after waiting so long for something to be a bit jittery when things finally fall into place! So many emotions! But you’re right to stay positive and focus on the good. I’ve heard time and time again that our attitude counts a lot towards our recovery after surgery.
    Just remember to focus on your breath when the jitters rise up. ❤
    Sending love and hugs your way!

    • Thank you. 🙂 Anxiety aside, I am really looking forward to it … and even more anxious that something will get in the way and delay it, though that is looking mercifully less likely with each day that passes. This has been a fast-paced but hugely positive year so far. 🙂 xxx
