Addendum to Yesterday's Post

So, by now y'all know that I am going under the knife on Monday morning. Every place I turn, people are blogging about someones death, epitaph or impending doom. I
am reading a book titled "Under the Knife" by Diane Fanning. The main character's name is Dean in the book and there just happens to be a Hurricane Dean wending it's circuitous route through the Gulf of Mexico. I admit it gave me pause to think of the ramifications of all these coincidences. My husband has assured me that he has prayed about it and that I am going to be just fine, but he keeps giving me these loving glances that say, "I am memorizing your face, just in case you don't make it out of the O.R." Which leads me to say sweet things like, " Would you like me to teach you how to sort laundry just in case I die?" "I'll type up a paper for you that tells you how to work the computer --- could you just let my blogger friends know if I don't make it back home?" "We should really hit that great little restaurant after church tomorrow--- just in case, you know!" I have only had a couple of days to accomplish an abundance of things that are important to nobody except me. He has been dusting and vacuuming without a peep. He also played thirty-six holes yesterday and 24 holes today. You just cannot go into the valley of the shadow of death without your ironing done, taking your Bernina into the store for it's annual check-up or without a French manicure and filing the mountain of papers on the desk is a must for perfectionist type folks. Anyway, I am milking this for all it's worth. Dear Lord, please don't let the joke be on me!

Good Luck, Kacey... comin' from Running On Empty, to just let you know my thoughts and prayers are with you.

Matty said...

Don't be'll do fine. And you'll come back better than you went. My thoughts and prayers are with you as always. You have many wonderful years ahead of you. Please let us know how things go on Monday. We'll be anxiously waiting to hear how you are! You can't miss a night of Trivia...I'll be watching for you.
Love from Canada.

Kacey, he needs to know how to get on to your computer Monday so he can tell us you are OK and planning your next blog post. After 60 holes in two days, typing a short post should be easy for him by comparison.

My thoughts are with you, but I agree with Matty, you'll do fine.

Thoughts and Prayers go out to you.

I'm just intrigued that you snowbird from OH to FL every year. We live in OH and dh wants to snowbird when we "grow up." But all I would do is worry about my OH home while I'm in FL and my FL home while I'm in OH. ;)

I'm so sorry for just finding this out and being so behind in my blogging. It's now Tuesday night, so it's too late for me to pray that your surgery goes well, but I'll pray that God watches over you for a speedy recovery! I know everything is going to be fine. And I know you have a lot of faith...keep it strong.

I'm sending lots of hugs your way.

Mom wanted you all to know that she came through the surgery and is doing very well. She has a bad headache she can't seem to control, but the surgery went very well, and she has a beautiful incision that should heal and disappear. Thank you for all your warm thoughts and prayers. God is good! DD=Lesley

YEAH!!!! We love you SC #1 --- get well soon!


PD Warrior said...

A fellow blogger wanted as many people as possible to wish you well. I see I am too late to pray for the surgery, but I will certainly pray for God's speed with recovery.

Lisa said...

Kacey, WaHOO!!! I'm so happy that your surgery went well, and you are on your way to a speedy recovery!!

God bless you...we miss you. xoxo

Matty said...

How are you feeling? I hope you are getting spoiled a little. I'm glad you got through the surgery okay. Maybe when you're up to can write a post about it and let us know what we may be in for in the years ahead!!
I am working on a blog for my grandson....of course he wants me to write it....12 yr old boys are not crazy about writing anything. He gave me permission as long as he gets to read it first. I will let you know.
