October 28th

October 28th is my surgery date!

To be honest, I'm really not that frustrated; yes, it is 6 weeks out, but considering there are only 7 days in that time where the surgeon performs this particular surgery (on Fridays), I will have to say it could be MUCH worse. On October 26 I will undergo a lot of pre-op appointments to prepare for the surgery and learning everything I need to know for my hospital stay and probably some afterward. 

In the mean time, I'm chilling out. I got a cortisone shot last week to help with the pain. It has been touch and go, but overall I am having more significant pain relief. I also got a pathology report yesterday saying that my current meds are safe for any pre-op or post-op medications to help alleviate the pain.

I apologize I did not post sooner. I've just been aggravated about the surgery and really don't want to think about it. I'm so scared and want it to go smoothly. I've been praying for patience and calm, cause I know panic will be relatively useless. Also have been crazy busy with school! TWO CLASSES LEFT!! I'm waiting to hear if I can my appeal approved to start my last class early, so I don't have to deal with it in the middle of surgery. I really don't want to do a capstone in the middle of surgery/pain/hospitalization. I'm sure my writings would sound DRUGGED!!!!!

I'll try to update with something more fun tomorrow :).... like about getting my first information packet from a graduate program and a letter from my Compassion child!


  1. I hope your surgery goes well and that the pain subsides!

    (P.S. Yea for getting a letter from your compassion child. I have never sponsored a child, but hope to one day. I'm sure it is a great joy to get a letter/hear from them-What an awesome opportunity! Thanks for serving in that way.)

  2. Hey thanks! I just finished writing a Christmas card to my child and sent her some Christmas money; figured it was the least I could do :). I'll have to upload that. I tried explaining a snowman for her... but it may not make sense until I can make a real picture of that later in winter. Compassion is so wonderful and my child is so dedicated and devoted to learning about Christ. The power of a child... pretty amazing, right?

    I saw you're doing a SW degree... wish you luck :)
