Unhappy mohs surgery

I am having mohs surgery on Dec 17 for basical cell carcomina. I am feeling quite scared is this normal? We caught the cancer early which is great news, but still I am trying really hard to relax not an easy task by any means. The cancer is on the right side of the nose next to the cheek. I am wondering how others dealt with this? I am trying not to be a baby about this, but I can't help feeling a bit freaked out I hope this is normal. Any advice on how to be ready for the surgery will be helpful.
