Big words that scare me. Tonight I will get yet another injection in preparation of Wednesday’s procedure. Tuesday night my eating and drinking must stop at 10pm. Wednesday I will be in a clinic gown and hopefully I will be home by 1pm.

What scares me most of all the big words are those that could see me never waking up. Those words that they do to you when you are in a medical facility and you get wheeled out in a coffin. I have a real fear of being placed under anesthetics.

I am an optimistic realist – or so I like to think of myself. Just in case anything does go wrong on Wednesday my will is up to date – and I would like to eat a meal fit for a queen. I want chicken and chips with a Cinnabon.

If I make it through this – I deserve a Pandora bracelet this year.
