I have waited for this day for over ten years. Surgery day. Thursday, July 11th. Check in at 6 am. Surgery at 8 am. I will be so happy when this is done, and I can come home.

Spending a week in Phoenix. Over 110 degrees the next four days. But Awww, I will be stuck indoors. LOL. 🙂 Hoping to only be in the hospital for two or three days, and then home to recuperate. If all is well at my Post-Op appointment I will head up the hill to my bed and my favorite paintings from friends, on Tuesday.

My last meal was scrambled eggs and fruit this morning. Had broth later, and as much water as I want. I am big on water. Very happy I am allowed to have some up until two hours before the surgery. Very happy indeed. The hardest part for me will not be going without food. I dread not being able to have water. But I will be asleep soon enough, so no worries.

So thankful, for your prayers and well wishes, I dearly appreciate them. 🙂
I am blessed to know you!

Dear Lord, grant me joyful acceptance of the surgery which awaits me,
and let this be the relief and cure which I seek.
Make skilled the work of the surgeon and that of his team
for it is unto their knowledge and skill that I give myself for healing.
I pray to you Lord, that this procedure will be without complication,
and that my recovery will be speedy and complete.
Amen.
