Kathryn's Chronicles
« Reply #180 on: May 12, 2020, 12:29:36 am »
Well there’s been one good thing that’s come out of this COVID-19 stuff.

I’ve been able to spend more time with my KC girlfriends than I would have been able to otherwise.

With our 3 hangouts closed, we moved our GNO on-line.  (Unfortunately that does force us into a BYOB situation.)  I haven’t missed one since. 

It’s one night a week where we laugh, cry, carry on, gossip a little, and most importantly - enjoy each other’s friendship and company.

What I love about this group is that we’re all older, professional women; 2 M.D.s, 3 Engineers, 2 IT Pros, and a Commercial Real Estate Owner.  We’re definitely not the stereotypical MTF community.

I’ll just sum it up as this:  I’ve never felt more understood and connected than I do with these ladies!

Well it’s getting real and I’m getting excited and nervous.

Surgery is Tuesday.

Cleared the last hurdle today, a Covid-19 test.  It came back Negative!!!!

Only thing left is my approximate $500.00 Copay (to be paid when I check in) and 2 unwanted parts are goners!!!!

Got this out of the blue yesterday. Its from my primary care doctor.  My surgery is being done by a colleague of theirs so its all part of the same health system.  Just the fact that they’ed take a moment to write this, I find so, so cool and sweet.


Thinking about you
Hi Kate,

Dear Kate:
Thank you so very much for sharing the note from your doctors.

All I can say is WOW... it is very unusual to get that kind of personal support and a personal message... and their words were very sweet and supportive.

Wishing you well on Tuesday.
HUGS and more HUGS,
Danielle

It’s 2:25 AM Monday morning as I write this.  I’m wide awake.

In 27 hours I’ll undergo the first of 3 surgeries to correct the birth defects in this body.

My mind is going a million different places every second.  “I’m crazy for wanting to do this.  Finally!  I can’t wait any longer!  I’m gonna hurt for a while. Anesthesia is a poison....  Is this worth turning the people who love me world upside down?”

I think the answer lies in the words of my oldest daughter.  “Kate, the anger you carried is gone.  I see it in your Facebook posts and how you relate to us [your family].  You’re finally living as yourself.”

Now if my mind will calm down enough to put this phone back on it’s charger and go to sleep.....

Patty’s driving and we’ve started home.

I’ve been in hospitals many times through the years for one thing or another and one of the first things I would do when discharged is rip off the ID bracelet(s) and throw them away.  I always found them irritating.

These 2 I want to keep and put them in my journal.  So they’re staying on until I get home where we have scissors.



OK Final verse:

I’ve been to Kansas CityKansas City I was there

I’ve been to Kansas CityKansas City I was there

They've got some pretty little women there, and now, I am one

“Warning, Warning, warning Will Robinson.”

(How many remember that TV show?)

“I’m not responsible for breaking screens on phones, tablets, or computers.  Scroll down at your own risk!”

Today was another milestone.  Today is the first time I wore a dress in public WHEN Patty WAS WITH ME.

(I wear dresses whenever I want to.)

Remember I had surgery this morning so there is no jewelry or make-up.  So this is not a ‘You look fabulous darlin” pic!

It is great to see your photo and that you are up and about after your surgery. 

Oh yes, I remember the Robot in Lost in Space...
     

Please rest and take it easy and heal up real good!!!
Thank you for sharing and posting.

Hi all

I’m taking today really easy.

Getting up and around but didn’t get dressed and thinking I won’t today.

Dealing with I mild allergic reaction to something.  I have an itch rash on my face.  Took some Benadryl.  It’s not getting any worse. It’s just nuisance.

My throat is actually sorer than the surgery site.  I woke while still intubated so I irritated my throat worse than most people probably do.

Now that this is done and covid is slowing down I’m going to get my consults scheduled with NYU Langone.
