The Big Day is Tomorrow

Wednesday, June 05, 2013

I am a complete ball of nerves today. I got my blood drawn and typed at the hospital this morning in case I have to have a blood transfusion and I was so nervous being there where I'll be tomorrow.

I'm on a liquid diet only, I'm doing my surgery prep (not fun, LOL), and now I'm just counting down until tomorrow morning.

To say I'm afraid is not even close to what I am feeling right now. I realize life will change tomorrow whether for the good or the bad or both. Life will just be different.

My kids are with their friends today so I'm glad that they are having fun and being taken care of. My best friend told me that several women in our homeschool group are going to deliver dinner for a few days so my husband doesn't have to cook, and I have organized and cleaned as much as I humanly can.

I am going to focus on relaxing and packing my bag for the hospital stay.

    You're facing a tough time. Speaking from experience I can say--

    Keep the faith.
    Keep praying, and believing in all those praying for you.
    Expect the best possible outcome.
    Quit worrying about the things you have no control over.
    Know, deep in your heart, that you are strong enough to deal with whatever you must.
    Be thankful for all the support others are offering, and trust them to help in any way they can. People are amazing.

    I'm sending a special prayer out to the universe to help you through this.

    All the best,

We will be praying for your successful out come and knowing that you are a strong person, it will not be long before all of this is part of your past! You shall overcome and you are a winner!

    emoticon Hey Sweetheart, I know I haven't been logging into SP much lately due to my work schedule then home life demands so I've been lax in keeping my tabls on my "fav" SP buddies.

    I just read through the blogs to understand what's happening. Listen, you've done all you can to prepare you family for the surgery and days to follow. Sounds like you've got a great support group in the homeschool women to lend a hand with meals and the kids have friends to help alleviate their stress and concern while you are in surgery and recovery.

    I am so ever thankful you found a GREAT cariing doctor who listened and is helping you with making the proper decisions. You are right, you are a wife and mom but you are also an AMAZINGLY KIND & WONDERFUL person who deserves to enjoy more of life without pain and exhaustion.

    Don't stress about the house, etc... it time to just pray, believe all the good you've done is now going to come back around and reward you (Karma) and to focus on being healthy, happy, and back to the person you want and know you are. I am going to keep you in my positive thoughts and since tomorrow is my birthday- guess what :
    I am wishing you the best results to come with this surgery and the following biopsy results because you have so much more GOOD to do in this world and to continue to spread your unique and beautiful spark. Keep fighting and believing- I believe in you.

    Lots of Love- Suzy emoticon emoticon emoticon
