Surgery Tomorrow

Wednesday, October 10, 2012

Well it's almost here. Tomorrow I will get my
hernia repaired around lunch time.
I'm a wimp, and the thought of a 2 inch incision makes
me cringe. But it could have been worse, and it wasn't.
I have insurance, and I will have extra help for my
2 special-needs kids. For that I am VERY thankful.

I don't have time to thank everyone individually for all the Spark's Goodies,
good wishes, prayers and support I have received. But if you are reading this
then THANK YOU! Thank you for cheering me up and for rooting me on as I
continue to and stay binge free. Thank you for all the cheering when I get a
fitness trophy. Those have been harder to come by the past 2-3 weeks.
Thank you for all the positive comments you leave on my blog and my Spark page.
And thank you to all my SP friends and team members who have been
encouraging me to keep moving forward. You really make a difference.
Sometimes I'm close to tears when I read all my messages and replies you all
leave for me.

I'm not sure how much I will be sparking after I get home tomorrow, but
I plan on spinning the wheel so I don't break my streak. :)
I will try to at least update my status when I get home.

Thanks again to everyone who has been there for me!

    My daughter at five had an inguinal hernia repaire that she was born with. Got her home and she decided to go for her BIG WHEEL to ride. We caught her. I don't think you will feel like a child does, that doesn't know they hurt, but I'm hoping you have it go a lot better than you expected and less pain.

    All the best Joy! That two inch zipper will heal in no time and you won't even notice it! You will be in my thoughts..Surgery is always a frightening experience, going into the unknown, its nothing to be ashamed of to admit being scared. As many of them as I have had, I still get nervous before having one..

    You'll continue to be in my prayers with lots of healing energy being sent your way. I'm so glad you will have the help at home you will need after the surgery. You'll be feeling so much better quickly and once you heal up, there will be no stopping you! For now, rest, rest!

Hugs to you, Sweetie Pie. Rest in the knowledge that God has it ALL under control.
