My eyes are FULL of tears, my hearts is FULL of love, and my cup runneth over... if that makes any sense at all. Never in my life have I seen, felt, or witnessed such an outpouring of love and concern. You (my friends all over) have been so kind to me. I treasure your cards, letters, flowers, and comments on this blog. I know I go into this surgery with a huge support system and your strength magnifies my own. Your faith brings me so much comfort...and your kindness helps me to know that the fight is all worth it. I feel so humbled, weak, and unworthy of the kind things you have shared with me and about me...but I am so grateful as well. Thank you for being in my life and for the unique roles each of you play in my life. Some of you are friends of old, some I haven't seen in years, some are from one of my many moves, from school, from church, some are my family, and some of you are newer treasured friends that have entered my life through various means. To all of you I am grateful and I feel as though the Lord blesses me through each of you. You have acted as instruments in his hands...and have answered many of my prayers over this last year. Thank you!
My surgery is scheduled to start around 12:30 pm on Friday. Depending on what the Dr. finds, it could be a very long afternoon. It is just the only place he could fit me in his schedule to get me in quickly. Larry or my mom will blog and post the updates as I come out . They are very concerned that the cancer has spread, but I am not going to go there unless it happens. We will see...and you will know as soon as we do. I am worried about many things entering this, but feel so much comfort at the same time. I am at peace with this part of the process...and I hope that this will be a means to healing and health. I am trying so hard not to focus on the physical pain that I will soon endure...I can do it! I will do it! Here I go!!!
