I will have surgery Friday, February 3rd.
« on: January 31, 2012, 05:17:33 PM »
I am having surgery Friday, February 3rd - scheduled for 7:30AM.  I will have surgery by robotics since it is far less risky.  As far as I know, barring any complications, I will be able to return home the next day due to the type of surgery.  Then there will be a 4 to 6 week recovery period at home.

Please pray for the Lord's mercy that all goes well. 

Thank you!
In His Mercy,
BethAnna

I've had general anaesthetic at least 6 times in my years as well as sleeping gas at a dentist, and I'm still in one piece.

Pray all goes well.

Excellence of character, then, is a state concerned with choice, lying in a mean relative to us, this being determined by reason and in the way in which the man of practical wisdom would determine it. Now it is a mean between two vices, that which depends on excess and that which depends on defect.

Biro, there are now two different kinds of ice cream in the freezer. . .where there was none before.  :D

Thanks everyone - I'm home, now.  I'm still sleeping a lot, and poor Jessie (my GSD) won't let me out of her sight - and sits by the bed nudging my hand now and then to make sure I'll 'move'.  **chuckles** I'm pretty dopey right now - so I'm gong to go get back into the bed.

I'm so relieved this is over.  :)
