Why I Stressed About Valentine’s Day

Remember when I mentioned that my boyfriend deserved to be pampered on Valentine’s Day because of what he did on Saturday?

Well, here’s the story behind that…

On Saturday, January 30th, I had a uterine polyp removed. It was the first surgery I’ve had as an adult, and I was happy that I could have one person stay with me prior to the procedure. A few days before I told my boyfriend that I wasn’t going to sleep over Friday because I had to be at the hospital at 6:30 A.M. Saturday.

He said that he’d take me…and wait with me!!

He waited with me until my surgery time, 8:30 A.M.

He even let me take one of his Eeyore plushies to keep me company during surgery (which, unfortunately, had to be left outside of the OR so he wouldn’t be accidentally thrown out when my bed sheets were collected and taken to laundry). If Eeyore had gone missing my boyfriend wouldn’t been sad.

Even though I was nervous, having him (my boyfriend, and to an extent, Eeyore) with me made me feel a little better. It would’ve been terrible having to wait in the surgery center alone.

But that’s why I was fretting about Valentine’s Day (which went well!!) He’s just a nice guy.

And in case you were wondering, the polyp was benign. However, I’m still having some pelvic pain three weeks later…going to get that checked next week.
