The hospital called today to confirm that a walker will be there for me post surgery. Not a big deal, I knew about this and it’s part of what I expect. Then the nurse says “Great! We’ll see you next week!”. I hung up the phone and felt like a had a stone in the pit of my stomach. NEXT WEEK. This is suddenly feeling like things are moving REALLY fast. Too fast almost. I suddenly feel like i’m not ready for this. I mean I just had a deep clean done on the house to help reduce the risk of infection, I’ve been getting my co-workers up to speed on what they will have to cover for me. I have this feeling that things at work will slip back to where they were when i came into my position (we have made massive strides forward). I feel like I need to postpone this just a few more weeks until I have everything all where it should be. Is this a normal feeling? I’m honestly quite bothered by this right now.
