Before I get started on my journey, I wanna take a minute to talk about Jim. Jim is one of my dearest, closest friends and one of the 287 crew. He lost his mother this past week to a long hard journey through brain cancer. Today is her funeral and I am so sorry I can’t be there buddy. He has spent the last year of his life caring for and spending time with his mother. I am so proud of you Jim, you have a heart of gold. Your mother was truly a diamond in the rough. So if everyone could stop for a second and send a prayer up for some strength for him to get through this day I would appreciate it. Send the good vibes his way. Love you Jim.
It’s 4:36 am and we are driving to the hospital. Today is the day, I have to be there at 6 am. Thankfully I am the first case! I’m waiting for the nerves to finally kick in. Maybe they will when I get to the hospital? God has my back (and my front). I feel good, I am ready to go.
You know what is making me nervous? My husbands driving. Poor E, I think he’s way more nervous than I am.
I wonder if I will be the person who wakes up from anesthesia and cries, or punches, or acts drunk, or says something stupid, or the one who tells you my deepest darkest secret. I bet I’m the one who wakes up and does something really embarrassing…oh goodness, I hope they don’t tell me if I do.
I’m ready for this part to be over. I can’t believe its finally here. How am I going to feel emotionally? I have no idea, hopefully I will feel relieved. Don’t worry, I am sure I will let you all know.
I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. Philippians 4:13
