I’m back in New York City today to start pre-op testing for my upcoming surgery. Doctors at Memorial Sloan Kettering will be reviewing the procedures for Uterin and Bladder surgery with me, and I’ll be completing the necessary blood work testing, EKG, and overall health check the next two days.
The weather is a crisp 28dg tonight, quite a difference from the 65dg and sunshine in Chula Vista. Oddly enough, the “cold” brings about a warm and festive feeling around this time of the year. I’m looking forward to seeing family and friends as well.
My spiris are high, I’m feeling strong, and most importantly I’m feeling a sense of calmness as I am going into surgery. I am comfortable with Drs. recommendations and with the decisions I have made. grateful for all of the support I have received from family, friends, fellow athletes, colleagues, and even strangers. It reminds me of how important it is to be kind, loving, and compassionate every day.
