I decided to not tell everyone I know about my surgery.
I know people mean well, but I know negative comments will bother me and I need to stay positive.
I told my closest friend, she was supportive and very happy for me, her input is one I respect so it was a good feeling to be able to talk about my decision.
My family has been great, but my MIL is wanting me to re-schedule surgery because a big family affair is going to be 2 days later.
I do understand, she said she will be worried about me and doesn't want to have that looming over her head...but I'm going forward.
After talking with my boss, who was also very sweet and supportive, we both decided that my original date works best for both of us, so I have to tell my MI and she will not be happy but it will be fine.
June 20th...that is just three weeks from yesterday...insert happy dance here
