Surgery Update #4

The surgery will take place on Tuesday, November 1st, tomorrow as you read this. I've been busy and it's helped me to feel calm but now on Sunday morning, sitting in my bed writing this, I'm beginning to feel a bit jittery. 

Jittery, what a great word to describe this feeling. As you know, English is my second language and sometimes I'm kind of amazed at how these words pop up in my brain. Jittery! How I love this language. 

Jeanne will take me and wait until the surgery is over. This is both hospital protocol and of course something both she and I want. 

Jeanne has become family now. 

Jasmine is coming up to spend the night with Faith and look after her. 

Jeanne will pick me up the next day and how glad I will be to get home again. 

And how happy Faith will be to see me and I her. I must keep thinking good thoughts like that.

I've had major surgeries before and I know that once I'm inside the hospital, I will just relax and let the doctors and nurses take care of me. 

I will not be able to blog for a while afterwards. My Chromebook, which I got online, is designed for children to take to school, so it's very sturdy. I somehow missed that when I ordered it, but I've come to like it. 

I tell you, I tend to miss a lot when I order stuff online. 

I thank you in advance, my good friends, for your thoughts and prayers. 

I will let you know how I'm doing as soon as I can. 

An already written post about Joy will post on November 2nd. 

Sometime ago, I decided that Joy is important. I guess we all know that, but sometimes the worries and problems of life get in the way.

To remind myself and you of the joy of each month, as I see it, I hope to post something about Joy for the coming month as the first post of each month. 

Just to stay focused. On Joy. 

Happy Halloween!!!


  1. The day is finally here and I will be praying for your surgery and for you and for all the people who are helping you and for the surgeons who are doing the surgery. I would be feeling jittery too and it is a fun word. We all love you and will be waiting to hear from you when you can pick up your sturdy laptop haha

  2. I am glad to hear Faith has a babysitter. I was wondering about that. Take care, Inger. Be well, be blessed. I am praying for you.

  3. My prayers are with you for a successful surgery and a speedy recovery. Faith will be glad to see you when you return home.

  10. I have just said a prayer for you AND your surgeon. For God to guide his hands. For a quick recovery, and that they get all the cancer. I know you will be fine; the waiting is the hardest part.

  11. Will be praying for you in earnest and the doctor as well to give him the skill he needs. Blessing that you have good friends to help you.

  12. If I should choose a favorite word, I think it would be Joy. I will think of this word and pray that the surgery goes well and that you make a fast recovery.

  13. Joy. You picked a great word and a great emotion. I will be praying for you that the surgery gives you all the results you are hoping for. Faith and you will have a happy reunion, your pup has a lovely name, doesn't she?
