Well, I’ve had a wonderful few months living essentially symptom-free. Just today I got to do one of my favourite things: go on a road trip with my wonderful wife to watch my awesome son play hockey. Friday I got to celebrate my incredible daughter’s 19th birthday with my family and some friends. Tomorrow I will get rudely yanked back into a reality where I am fighting for my life against an uncaring unfeeling opponent that is doing its best to kill me. (How’s that for a little melodrama? J)
Thankfully I’m in the hands of The Great Physician, who is capable of healing me or of giving me a glorious eternity. Right now I’m kinda hoping He helps the physicians in the operating room. I don’t feel like my work here is done, but it’s His call.
I’m glad I don’t have to be awake or responsive during this procedure. After all, given that I have to be at the Foothills hospital by 5:30AM, my hunch is I’ll be sound asleep again before the anesthetic has a chance to do its job. J
Anyway, I’ll try to send an update out as soon as I can after the surgery. I’m hoping we’ll know a little better what the future holds after the surgeons operate.
See you on the other side (of my surgery, that is – sheesh, I’m not dying just yet!). Thanks for all your prayers, thoughts, and support!
