My Christmas Apron and a Surprise Surgery
Christmas is almost upon us. I am done with shopping, just need a wrap a few more presents. I am also looking forward to singing in our Christmas Eve service.
I am going to enjoy talking and singing as much as I can this week because next Wednesday I am going in for a tonsillectomy. I am sick of having sore throat after sore throat. I decided to bite the bullet and ask my family to help me while they are on Christmas vacation. They have lovingly and graciously agreed to care for me and the kids so that Steve will not have to take any days off of work. If I can do a bunyonectomy, then I can do a tonsillectomy. My insurance is at a 100% until the end of the year and my doc graciously agreed to squeeze me in at the last minute.
I ask for you to pray for two things:
1. I will not have excessive bleeding (I guess 1 in 25 people have to go back and get cauterized again)
2. I will heal quickly, so that I can start homeschooling within 10 days. I guess talking is NOT something you want to do.
Thank you so much. I value your prayers more than words can say!
Have a Merry Christmas and may the Lord bless you and yours abundantly!
