This week I’ve been a bit of an anxious grump. Sorry hubby! Tomorrow I go in for my surgery to remove the mass in my breast.
Part of me is grumpy because this should have been done last month, but my surgery was canceled and rescheduled. Then on Monday of this week I was supposed to be able to call in and get my surgery time. Nope! I got told they didn’t have it and I’d have to call back today, Wednesday, in the afternoon. That doesn’t help the nerves, waiting to the last minute to get your surgery time.
I’m so thankful for friends and family who have all offered to help in whatever way needed. From watching Evie, to bringing lunch to Jason. All of them totally understanding about having to wait til this afternoon for us to figure out what we need help with and when.
My surgery is supposed to be in and out day surgery. The surgery itself is supposed to only be 30 to 45 minutes long. If it’s anything like my nose surgery, there is going to be a lot of waiting before and after. Jason will be prepared with the Kindle this time.
Ultimately I just want it done, and over with. I also want finalized answers and a solid “It’s not cancer.” No more of this “We don’t think it is, but we want to remove it and confirm to be sure.” I’ve been told if it is cancer they will have to go back in, and possibly some other stuff happen. Yup, I know what the other stuff likely is, but I’m trusting God that it’s not!
For now I’m staying positive. Praying for patience, less anxiety about it all, and for the doctor and staff tomorrow. I’d really appreciate your prayers during this time too.
