going in for my surgery - April 25th 2009, 12:21 PM

I thought i'd post this today as i probably won't have time tomorrow because it's going to be a bit hectic.

sooo.. the time has FINALLY come to get the tumour cut out of me, along with my thigh bone and part of my hip.

i'm gunna be all bionic with metal in me

i'm going in on monday and the op is on tuesday. i'm going to be in intensive care for 3 days or so afterwards, and shouldn't be in hospital for any more than two weeks in all.

i doubt i'll be on here at all while i'm in there because a) hospitals always have dodgy internet and b) i won't be in much of a state to be chatting.

anywayys. just thought i'd let you all know where i am for the next few weeks. please keep your fingers crossed for me that it all goes well. i'm pretty scared, even though this is what i've been waiting for, for the past six months it's still a bit of a difficult time for me cos it's actually happening now and it's not gunna be in me anymore. i'm getting pretty emotional about it for some weird reason.

after i come out from that two weeks theres a pretty high chance i'm going straight back in for more chemo and radiotherapy, so if i'm gone for longer then that's why.

please send some positive vibes my way, it'd be much appreciated as i need a bit of courage to get through this. arrgh.

See you all soon, when i shall have no cancer in me!!

I'll stop rambling now.

Elle...x


..and our dreams will break the boundaries of our fears..

Hey, don't worry Elle, I'm sure it'll go flawlessly.
I'm trying to think of something I can say, but I really can't think of any, just to remember that our thoughts are with you. It must be scary something like that, but just be brave and hold onto hope and know that you can do this.
Hell, we still have to hang out at the TH meet, look forward to that =)
I'll talk to you when you get back.
Wishing you the best Elle.

Good luck Elle, I'm sure you'll be fine.
Can we call you bionic Elle now? That would be awesome
We're all thinking about you, and here for you, so keep strong.

Elle,

I know you can make it through this. You will still be you, only slightly different. They aren't going to remove any of that spirit I love so much and replace it with a titanium one so you've got nothing to worry about. Even if you're in a bad mood you can always talk/rant to me. As soon as you can please let us all know you're okay. I miss miss miss you being my crime fighting partner. I wish a million times over that you get better soon. Take care and don't stop fighting.

Lots and lots of love <3 Mimi

Good luck Elle!

Keep your chin up, you'll pull through. But I can understand why you're nervous. I'm sure your friends/family will be there to hold your hand.. and tell you not to worry. So I won't do that.

Looking forward to hearing how it went. Wishing you a speedy recovery in advance.
