Surgery, Anyone?

  I am down to one sleep and a wake-up before surgery, and doing okay. I was actually more anxious yesterday and the day before; now I just want it to be over. We have spent the weekend being sociable. We went to RI to see Rene's brother Kevin and his wife, Betsy. I went out to breakfast with Peggy, my best friend from childhood, and we've had manyl friends drop by, or call to say good luck. It's all been a bit of a shock after two weeks of solitude, but quite heart warming. I am grateful for my friends.  

I have to be at Yale-New Haven Hospital at 7:30 AM, and surgery is scheduled at 8:30 AM. If you read this before then, send energy, a thought, a prayer, whatever works for you. I am going in surrounding myself, the doctor, anesthesiologist, and the whole room with light. If you read this later, you can still send get-well thoughts, etc. 

 Am I scared? Yes, I am, but I know that I can be afraid and still act- and be- courageous. Warrior Woman for Her Health lives! This will be my mantra to get me into surgery, then I don't have control so I won't have to worry. Afterwards I'll have the strength to cope with whatever. I know this from all my previously surgeries!  

I have asked Rene to post a note here to let you all know how I'm doing. I will probably be in the hospital till Thursday or Friday, and then it'll take me a while to catch up a bit and post, but I'll be back eventually. Have a great week, everyone, and thanks so much for your encouragement and friendship. I value both.  

Blessings, Margo
