Good morning peeps :-) Today's the day. They said I could eat a light breakfast this morning, but I've got absolutely no appetite this morning. I keep talking myself up to it. Even one of the nurses at my PCPs office said to me yesterday, "Amanda, you are brave as nails for doing this." I said, "Holly, I've just got to roll with the punches already. Keep my head on straight and tight, and just go with it." She said, I would never have enough gumption to do this kind of procedure without sedation. Hell, if I can get the back of my leg opened without any sedation, I can surely do this. No biggie.
And the adrenaline has finally stopped. If there ever is a next time, I'll wait for a time that I have a driver available and will go with sedation. That was awful! It didn't help matters that someone had left the spinal needles within my view. That freaked me out totally!
