I’m Having Surgery+Life Update

This photo is old but I promise to take some new ones

If there was an award for best blogger I wouldn’t even be nominated. But I’m trying to get back into the swing of things. I’m pretty impressed with the interest you all showed in my last post.

You all definitely deserve a life update. As most of you already know, I suffer from bladder leakage and it’s not getting better. I’ve tried so many different ways to control it. But now I have to have a small operation early in May. It’s actually really cool because Botox will be injected into the wall of my bladder. Right now my bladder is constantly moving and can’t hold any liquid. So the Botox will make it chill out.

It’s normally a 30 minute procedure done in the doctors office but since I have to have my urethra stretched to get the scope and catheter to fit I have to be sedated.

As much as I’m excited (because this basically life changing) I’m also nervous. As a baby I’ve had lots of surgeries but I don’t remember them. So in a way this is all new to me. I’m nervous about a lot of things. The anesthesia, the procedure, the recovery. I’m so excited but my nerves are getting the best of me.

What tips do you all have? I’ll definitely keep you all updated!
