Half Way There

Wow, this has been quite a day. Lindy has made it through phase one of the surgery and is now moving to the second part. Looks like another couple hours before it will be done.

Khaki it is.  The painting hasn’t started yet, but the color has been chosen.  From the comments and emails it was unanimous to go with khaki.  Thank you to everyone for your advice.

My surgery is tomorrow.  The day is almost here.  This is very surreal.  I feel numb again.  I don’t want to do this.  I know I have to, but I don’t want to.  The hospital just called to say that my surgery has been bumped back an hour so it starts at 2:30 and won’t take as long as originally planned.  Probably about four hours. 

Dusty will be updating the blog throughout the day tomorrow and for the next couple of days.  Please pray for the nurses, surgeons, techs and anyone else who will be in my path during my surgery and hospital stay.  Pray that the cancer is 100% removed and for a successful surgery.   Pray for Dusty as he stands by my side and holds my hand through this.  Pray for Max and Samantha while they stay at Kathy’s house.  Pray for Brooklyn while she stays with her Aunt Jana.  Pray for peace for my entire family and friends. 

Dusty and I can’t thank you enough for your prayers.  Thank you for all the cards and emails I’ve received.  I’m sorry that I haven’t been able to respond to all of you, but please know I got them and I thank you for them. 

Notice: My hosting company 1&1 recently upgraded the back-end engine that powers this blog. In doing so, they deleted all the existing images on the site. They are not assisting me with replacing the images they deleted, so I will be adding the images back as time allows. Thank you for your understanding.
