Last night I dreamed that I had to get my kidney removed. We were about to go in for the surgery, and I started to panic, so they gave me this big shot that was supposed to sedate me, and it did - only I could still hear everything around me. And I could hear the doctors talking about how big the incision was going to be. (In order to remove the left kidney, they have to cut from your belly button all the way around your side to your spine.) It was so scary, and I remember thinking that I wish I could just see my mom. I hope that they let me be with her right until she goes back for surgery when it happens.
