I hope to get the changes finished tonight. However, if I don't. it will probably be like this for a few weeks.
I am asking for prayers please. Tomorrow (Tues Jan 17) at 8:30 am, I will be undergoing major surgery. The plan right now is for me to stay 3 days/ 2 nights but that is subject to change if the need arises. I KNOW everything will be just fine and I have no worries. I am actually looking forward to this. Even though I have no worries, I still am asking for prayers. Prayers never hurt anyone!
1. Pray for my daughter. She is away at school and she worries about me and my medical mess so much. I know she will be a basket case. If you know who she is, please send her a word of encouragement in a message on Facebook. Also, pray for her friends to surround her to try and keep her mind occupied with as much other things as possible.
2. Pray for my parents and my husband as they will be at the hospital with me tomorrow. And pray an additional prayer for my husband as I will take frustration (with nursing staff mostly) out of him. It is the medical knowledge in me! Also for my husband and dad who have a hard time sitting around in a hospital!
3. Pray for my doctors and the surgical team, their hands, and their minds during the procedure. My surgeon is a Christian and I am very blessed that even as a physician, he puts faith above science if you know what I mean.
4. Is finally for me. Not for the surgery itself, I will be asleep! LOL But for after. I need as easy a recovery as possible because it is going to be a long one. I quote, "You are going to have it rough and hard for the first 2 weeks, you will feel like crud for up to 6 weeks, and then it will get better at 8-10 weeks. That is a long time!
So if those of you that pray, will please say specific prayers for the above 4 requests, I would be most appreciative. I hope to be back blogging as soon as possible as I started back with a bang and then had to drop it without a word. However, I will do my best to at least keep up my obsession with Pinterest! ;-)
