My surgery is scheduled for Wednesday at 8 in the morning. Please pray for me tomorrow as I do my last minute errands and prepare for the surgery. I'll pick my mother up at the airport around lunch time and she will stay with us for 10 days.
I was ok, and not nervous or anything until I went to the doctor's office this morning. Actually, I don't know if there is much of a difference between anxious and nervous, but I think anxious would describe what I'm feeling. I'm just ready to get it behind me. This morning they had me sign a paper that describes every possible thing that could go wrong and if that didn't scare me enough the doctor was kind enough to walk me thru every detail! :) Actually, I went thru all this just 13 months ago down to arriving at the hospital the morning of the surgery. I guess some of those emotions are resurfacing, too. BUT don't feel sorry for me, I'm really fine. Before I ramble on too much, let me say what I started this post to say....
I would appreciate your prayers. Here's how you pray...
- for efficiency tomorrow as I finalize everything and prepare for the surgery itself.
- my mother's safe travels to us
- calm nerves
- that I keep my focus and trust in my heavenly Father
- the surgery itself ( the doctors and all involved)
- my swift recovery so that I can come home quickly from the hospital
That's all I can think of for now.
I'll probably pop in again tomorrow and then Jillana will be in touch on Wednesday.I thank God every day for blessing me with friends and family. He's been especially generous to me with all the friendships I've made thru this blog. I just pray that I honor Him with everything that I do.
Signing off for now... and of course, I'm choosing joy!! Jacki
