Surgery Tomorrow

Unfortunately, I don't have a lot of time to explain the details right now, but for those of you that haven't heard I am having surgery tomorrow morning.  The Gyn-Onc on the OU Cancer Institute and the Gyn-Onc here believe it would be prudent to put a scope in tomorrow and physically look at my ovaries and uterus to ensure that there is no sign of endometriosis implants (cancer).  They believe that this cancer began with endometriosis implants in my old episiotomy scar tissue. If this endometriosis acting this way, then they aren't certain that other endo has acted this way.  There are other details I'll share soon. 

Tomorrow I will arrive at the hospital at 5:30 am and should be back home around 11:00.  They will put me fully under anesthesia and will make the incision directly under my belly button. 

Billy is taking me in the morning and then my sister, Amy, will come take over at 8:00 am so he can go take his last final of this semester.  My brother, Josh, is staying the night at our house tonight so he can get the kids up int he morning and get them to school.  I'm so blessed to have family that loves me and helps me so much.

We'll try to update tomorrow.....

  4. As Brian said, we are praying. Rest in the fact that God already has the answers and His ways are perfect even when we don't understand.
    Psalm 34:8 "Taste and see that the LORD is good. Oh, the joys of those who take refuge in him!"
    I know that He will carry you tomorrow as you take refuge in Him.
