Post Update-Surgery Tomorrow (10th)

Hi everyone!

I am so sorry I have been MIA for so long. It's not because I had better things to do or didn't want to be here, it's because things have gotten so much worse since my last visit. Both of my legs are now involved and the pain has gotten so bad. My surgery wasn't even approved until just last week.

Anyway, I will be going in tomorrow morning (April 10th). My show time is 9am with my surgery starting around 10:30ish. I'd appreciate any and all prayers you can offer. The older I get the bigger of a baby I get And obviously, this is the biggest one yet and I am scared. I know it will be fine...it's just details that get on my mind so much.

I will have my husband, Jared, try to jump on and keep you up to date.

I hope everyone here is doing as well as can be. You're always in my thoughts and prayers! Bless you all!

Love,
Tina

Well wishes for your surgery & I wish that your surgeon has a nice restful sleep after getting to bed earlier than his … patient

For some reason I never get nervous before a procedure or surgery, in spirit I am sending you some calm and assurance.

Best wishes Tina,

Pike

Tina,

I am praying everything went well during your surgery. You are well on your way to recovery!! I did not like the PT's coming in so soon telling me to do exercises when all I wanted to do was sleep. The sooner you do get up the better you will do. I was walking the halls the day after surgery (the first surgery) and felt pretty good with the exception of the incision pain.

I am keeping you in my thoughts and prayers,
Kathy
