I love being prepared and having everything sorted and done way in advance.
I went into the hospital last week to do my pre-admissions and it feels like a weight lifted off my shoulders that all I have to do on Friday (surgery D-Day) is just smile and walk in. lol 😉
I asked the nurse and the admissions staff all 100 of my questions and they all put my mind at ease and made me feel so safe.
So… today marks 4 days until my prophylactic double mastectomy.
Today I am feeling the nerves and the fears surfacing but I am trying my best top keep myself in check. I have an amazing husband who reminds me constantly that everything is going to be ok and I am strong enough o get through this. I KNOW I am!!! But I think it is only normal to be scared and nervous anyways.
Being prepared is definitely helping my emotions and my anxiety. I know that all I need to sort out is myself, I have my bag mostly packed and all my documents sorted out.
If I could give, anyone going through this journey or any scary journey of their own, some advice… it is to take each day, each minute at a time! Breathe slowly and remember why you are doing this!!!
I CHOOSE LIFE!
I CHOOSE MY FAMILY!
I CHOOSE NOT TO KNOWINGLY ALLOW MYSELF TO GET BREAST CANCER!
This is my mantra today:
You can do this Megan. You have gone through so much in life already. You can do this!!!
