Well… I heard from my doctor on Wednesday and I am headed to Stanford tomorrow. She’s calling it an exam under anesthesia.
What on earth does that even mean?
I’ll tell you what it means:
- There’s a home prep involved.
- 2 hour early arrival
- a weigh-in
- Attempted removal of my wedding ring
- An IV
- An operating room
- High probability she will cut something out
- Pain in the recovery room
- A queasy ride home with Ed speeding over highway 17
- And soreness for DAYS!
How’s that for an optimistic outlook?
AND… let us not forget…
IT’S FRIDAY THE 13TH!
Yes, I’m feeling sorry for myself. I cried when I hung up the phone and even accused Ed of not having enough sympathy for me. I’m being a baby and I know it.
But… here is the Voskamp quote of the day that I am clinging to:
“Be a prayer warrior not a panicked worrier.”
And that’s where you come in.
Would you pray for me? Would you pray that this exploratory appointment goes smoothly and nothing scary shows up? If I cross your mind tomorrow, I’d love prayer for my emotional well-being too.
Psalm 112:7. “He (ok, SHE) will have no fear of bad news; his (HER) heart is steadfast, trusting in the Lord.”
I really do trust Him!
