You Know what I Don't Understand...

    Hi Mel, I know that you have had some ups and downs approaching this surgery. There are many unknowns and fears going into this. You know what surgery is all about, the recovery time and how that will impact what you provide for your family. But as we have discussed before, you have a supportive family that is behind you and with you. Thats a big piece of the battle. You are smart, you read, you want to find out whats involved. So, again, you are one step ahead of the game. You know what its store, no surprises. And then finally its the surgery date. Once that is done and you start on your recovery period, you will just begin a time that will help fix and improve your physical condition and the outcome will be one that is pain free. No, you wont be able to do all the things you did before, but you will be rid of that monster pain, that stabbing feeling that has been eating at you all along. So, as my subject line says, the Bright light and better days are up ahead.

    My best to you and to your family,

  • Thanks Ron,

    Actually, going into this rescheduled date I have felt more at peace for some reason, like things will fall into place. More like myself, like I felt during my other surgeries. I'm not sure what I was feeling the few days before the other date or if the feelings will come back again. Right now, I'm ok.

    My husband is wonderful, although he may not always understand what I am going through he is always there for me. That I can count on.

    I do agree that sometimes it is easy to lose focus especially when we are stressed. I'm trying to stay focused on myself and my family these next few days.

    Thank you for your words of support and encouragement!
