Today I was supposed to have surgery. If all went as I had originally planned, I probably would have either been out of recovery a very short time at this moment, or coming out of recovery soon. It’s always hard to know a timeline exactly without having to go through the experience. But, the surgery was meant to last five and a half hours and I assumed recovery would have been at least another 3-4 hours.
I haven’t had a surgery of this length or seriousness in a very long time! I think the last time I had a procedure that is this in-depth was 1993. 24 years, that’s a long time! Trust me, it is, but it goes by in a blink!
So, I was not up to health recommendations for the surgery today, but my doctor feels confident with rest and plenty of fluids I should be good to go in 2 weeks, so, December 21st is when it is currently rescheduled- Again. Yes, that’s right. This is not the first time we rescheduled this beast! God sees what we don’t, so I am taking a leap of faith in believing that God has prevented some pretty tragic results with these set backs.
I have not written much this past week or two. My mind has been completely in line with getting this surgery done. I am hoping to jump back into the swing of this blog today and in the coming days. I want to bridge the gorge that has appeared in my views.
