|my backyard, August|
...I couldn't think of anything witty for a post title tonight and blogger isn't letting me into my photo album, thus, this was still on the camera. Lucky me, lucky you. I don't like to post without a photo...it's just the way I roll.
I am humbled at the concern and generosity that you have shown me today. Your thoughts and prayers, your comments and e-mails, your well- wishes and support have proven to me that I am in the right place. Physically and Spiritually. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
You have given from your hearts and I have read each and every e-mail and comment. I have much information to process and many questions to ask my doctor. It sounds like there are some long-term issues to be concerned about but overall I think that I will be o.k. I am terrified of having surgery and at this point that thought is what is holding me down. Anesthesia and I are not BFF's!
If not for you I'm sure that the next few days, until the lymph node resection, would be too stressful for me. I not only have to take care of my heart but I have to take care of my "heart." The one that beats in my chest...as most of you know, I had a heart attack a few years ago and stress is my biggest enemy. I must do all I can to keep it at bay.
That brings me to my MIL. She is doing much better today. Had carotid ultrasounds and they were both clear. She is adjusting to a new dose of coumadin and blood pressure meds, which can be difficult to tolerate at the onset. She seemed to be in good spirits when the hubs was there and they were able to take a little walk down the hall unassisted. She plans on going home tomorrow but we are more hopeful for Saturday. Thank you for adding her to your thoughts and prayers.
If not for you, my friends, I would be lost, lonely and afraid. Thank you again from the bottom of my heart~~Blessings to you and yours~~
