Step 1. Done.

Surgery is complete and so far I’m doing pretty good.

It has been a long draining day. Saying goodbye to loved ones before surgery is so emotional.  I was pretty sad initially, with a steady flow of tears running down my cheeks. The  nurse tried valiantly to keep my chin up while also needing me to move into a change room to get my beautiful backless gown on. 

Wiping away tears I asked “Do I just leave my undies on?”

“No we have underpants in the change room for you”, the nurse replied.

What I had not anticipated was how special the underwear would be.. added bonus one size fits all.

Paper undie selfie 😜
My tears dried up as I pulled these beauties on! Lol. 

I felt like a cabbage patch doll in a pair of pilchers! I burst out laughing at myself.

As I sat there with ten other nervous (and starving) souls waiting for the theatre nurses to call our name I couldn’t help but imagine each of them in their cabbage patch knickers too!

Gotta get your kicks where you can.
