Thankfully blessed...

This my messy night stand. The picture is by far the opposite of quality photography, but I took it with my cell phone so... pretend it is a better view and highest quality. I just wanted yall to see my pretty tulips.

Last night I was lying in bed wishing I could just go to sleep all while savoring the last few sips of my Apple Orange Pineapple juice. I had to be NPO for surgery this morning.  I coughed the entire way to the hospital and up until the point where they put me to sleep... i continued to cough.

When I arrived at the hospital, Jason (my pastor) , Matt and Amanda were there. I was so happy to see them. I had no idea they were coming. They went out of their way and woke up way early. All to come and keep me company while waiting and to pray with me. They will never know how special I felt. Thanks guys! I am truly blessed to have such an awesome church family

Then it was off to surgery, then recovery, and then the home. Home is where I slept all day and where my Nannie and Grannet came to visit me. It is where my Momma waited on me hand and foot. Where RD came to visit and take over Momma's duties when she became too tired to talk.

Surgery went well. The doctors and nurses at St. Vincent's are so kind an friendly. They are by far the best hospital staff I have ever had to deal with. And I have dealt with some hospitals in my day! I was the kid always going to the ER from broken bones to kidney stones.  (Thanks Shelley for advising me to switch to there!)It did not take as long as they predicted. I will know by Monday afternoon what the lump was exactly and if it has a chance to return. The whole experience was not as bad as they had me thinking it would be. Yes, I am sore, swollen and give out, but I was taken care of. God knows what He is doing and today I had to let go and let God. It was all in is hands. 

Thank you to everyone who prayed and kept me in their thoughts. I am truly blessed to have such amazing family and friends.

I am so happy that it is over and I believe the report will be fine. Take it easy and let everyone take care of you (especially RD). See you soon!

I said a prayer for you last night, and this morning. Get some rest and know that you are LOVED. BTW - Shelley is right. St. V's is BY FAR the best hospital around! Wait till you have a baby there! (in a long time) :)

My little problem is so minor compared to yours and yet you still have the kindness to encourage others. You amaze me!
