1 week away from Surgery! :-)

August  28th 2016
     Ok y’all I have a lot to catch you guys up on. A lot’s been happen with me lately.For starters, surgery day is 1 week away from tomorrow. Tomorrow is another urology doctor’s visit. It’s my pre-op visit. During this visit, they will run a slew of tests. ust make doubly positive that as healthy as I can be before this surgery. I should be in the hospital for about 1 whole week (7 days). And while I’m there I will do my best to keep y’all updated & caught up on my progress as I recover. If and as I am able.
September 1st.
      My pre-op visit with my NP named  Paula went well. The visit with her was short and sweet the only real major thing she had to tell us is that I couldn’t have any sort of NSAID medication before surgery. And then can the marathon of running from place to place to get the test they needed done. I went from Blood In urinalysis lab to the Cardiology Clinic to have an EKG or heart test done. No worries there for anyone not even me. In fact the nurse that did the EKG for us was very surprised that new immediately that my EKG was normal. I laughed and told her “yes Grey’s Anatomy teaches you a lot.” 🙂  on the way home we stopped in Carmichael California to meet face-to-face with a friend of mine named Danielle. Danielle has already had the procedure done and has similar needs to mine as well as having CP herself. It was a joyous meeting and very informative to meet with her. She told me some of the ups and downs that could happen but that I was strong and would make it through whatever was going to happen to me and quite honestly I believe her. As we were leaving her place I remember just hugging her goodbye and crying in her lap. I was crying because of a lot of things but especially because she along with several others opened my eyes to this option to be the next chapter in my new found  independent life’s Journey.

After a wonderful meeting with Danielle, I found it very important to find my way back to my church classes and so tonight my new boyfriend Alan and I went to our church group. They were playing God’s Not Dead 2 which was an awesome movie! I recommend it to anyone who hasn’t seen it yet to watch it you won’t regret it. But anyway just before I left for the night our pastor Pastor Jim asked if he could pray over me after I made the announcement that I would not be back next week nor would I probably be back the following weeks because I was having surgery. That is about the time when he stopped and asked if he could pray over me. As he did there’s one word that stuck out in my head and still sticks out even now hours and hours later.He said “Lord my you give Sam some peace in these upcoming days leading to her surgery”. Let me tell you I am so grateful that Pastor Jim said those words because I have felt nothing but the feeling of the world is pressing down upon my shoulders for weeks now. Surgery fast approaching and my family and I have decided to move here soon. I am ecstatic for the move because it just means God has a chapter in our lives that we must write with the help of His hand through all of it. So my point is as Pastor Jim said those words: ” “Lord may you give her some in these upcoming days and weeks…” that meant the world to me because he didn’t have to know all that was going on with me, but in his prayer he prayed for peace for me in all of it. In just  hearing those words I was instantly relieved of those feelings that all of the world was on my shoulder. Who knew a prayer for your own peace in your body and mind in your soul could do that much? It can and has released all anxiety and worry that remained in me. All released in one moment as soon as he said those words. I’m grateful to Pastor Jim for praying those exact words when I needed those words and that very prayer the most. Thank you Pastor Jim and all the others who prayed over me tonight… I love you all!
