I am a little bit stressed tonight as my surgery was postponed until TUESDAY morning.
I spent the day at the hospital, getting shaved in my "private" area, blood drawn, chest x-ray, an EKG, an IV started....the whole works. At about 2, the nurse took me to the holding area beside the surgery room. Just as they were bringing me into surgery, two people were brought in that needed immediate heart surgery and a third came in later. Since my operation is not a life or death type thing, (I have PAD and need another bypass in my left leg) of course, I was taken back to my room. My sweet doctor had been there, doing surgeries, since 7:00 this morning. These 3 that came in would mean he would still be there at midnight. His nurse suggested me going home and starting fresh in the morning. Of course, I said "that sounds good to me!" Now, I have to tell you that my surgery was originally scheduled for LAST Wed. and, after going thru all the "stuff" before surgery, it was postponed that day as well. So, for a week now, I've been on a roller coaster ride of emotions.
The way I have it figured, tho, is that, for today's surgery at least, my doctor was needed for these 3 very ill people and I was meant to go home and wait. I am asking you once again for continued prayers and this time, please add the 3 people that need all the prayers they can get.
I will go to the hospital at 6 in the morning, surgery should be around 9, if it be HIS will.
Thank you , many blessings and love to all......
