Surgery Friday

Yeah, so Friday morning, May 7 I get this thing under my arm taken out. I attempted to measure it last night and it was about 1 1/4" inches across in most directions. It's kind of interesting that, like before my initial major surgery, the last week has been the most irritating. I had to prop up my arm last night with a blanket so it wouldn't rest on the piece of junk and make it hurt-which reminded me of having to sleep with a pillow under my side to support my huge abdomen before my initial surgery.

Too much information I'm sure, but it is what it is.

The other thing I find interesting is that I was second guessing whether I should have the surgery when I made the appointment a month ago, but in the last month the thing has grown and become really annoying, so this is another example of God guiding each step and timing everything more than perfectly. I don't care to imagine how big it would be in another month, or three, or five.

Please pray for the medical processes and practitioners and me on Friday... and for wisdom for my interactions.... Fast healing and minimal pain would be great too...

Many thanks....

  5. I was just thinking about you and your surgery tomorrow... I know everything will be just fine; there's a divine plan and this is part of it. You're going to feel so much better by tomorrow afternoon. I also continue to pray that those mutant/freaky/hopping spider crickets will just leave well enough alone. I guess I'll pray a littler harder, with a little more focus. xoxo
