Today I’m having a small Crohn’s-related surgery at 1:00. Please keep me and Josh in your prayers the next few days as I recover! The daily blog project will keep running becayse I have posts scheduled for the next few days (I know I could’ve taken a break but I didn’t really want to).. I’ll probably share any health updates on my twitter if/when I feel up to it.
nervous about surgery. I know that it’s a simple procedure and I trust my surgeon, but still. It’s kinda scary.
the next few days of recovery. I have been through this before (four years ago) and it was awful. But I think that since I have a better idea of what to expect this time, it won’t be as bad.
(that it won’t be as bad, haha) also hoping that this surgery will be the first step toward healing and proper disease treatment. I’m hoping that 2017 is the year I stop experiencing daily pain and as a result I will miss out on fewer adventures.
Josh! He has been such a calming presence for me in the weeks leading up to today. I don’t know what I’d do without him. I really don’t. These next several weeks aren’t going to be easy for him as he takes care of me, but I have complete confidence that I’m in good hands.
• peace that passes understanding in the face of fear and uncertainty • a kind surgeon and doctor whom I trust • cash discounts • getting to celebrate a little bit of Christmas early • real live Christmas trees • praying friends • kombucha • kiwi fruit • thoughtful gifts from friends • family • hope • my sweet husband •
