The time is NOW!

So the time has come! We leave out in the morning for Envoy's surgery center in The Woodlands. I have surgery early Friday morning. Not gonna lie, I'm nervous. I think anyone would be. I'm not nervous about the surgery itself, I'm just nervous about being under. I want everything to go well, and I want no complications. Praying for a steady hand for the doc as well. I've got a good support system made up of family and friends, and I'm blessed that they are all able to help with the girls while I'm 'out of commission'. The next time I blog, I will no longer have hearing aids!!!! Yay. It will be a long 8 weeks waiting for my 'activation date', but at least I have one good ear to work with during this time :)

On another note, this weekend will be the 2 year anniversary of my Father in Law Ross's death. He left us suddenly January 14th, 2010. One of the greatest men I've ever had the blessing to meet. He taught me so much about life and about God using so little words :) I miss him dearly still every day. We all do. (Our family) Last time I had surgery, I woke up telling everyone that Ross and Jesus were by my bedside the entire time I was under. I experienced a complete and utter peace. Even though it didn't seem like 9 hours, it seemed more like an hour. Jesus sat in a chair at my bedside, and Ross stood the whole time. Had his little fingers tucked into his pants pockets the way he did when he was just standing around talking or listening to someone. It was a complete sense of comfort............I have to be honest and say I hope I get to experience this again.

Thank you for all the prayers, words of encouragement, and thoughts. It means a lot.
