. . . . . Emotions

There is nothing "wrong" today, and yet I cannot stop the tears. My body feels exhausted from a busy weekend and my mind is tired from trying to prepare for my upcoming surgery. I have spent the morning on the phone with the insurance company and with various family members and friends, trying to figure out how to make everything work.

I still have to book airline tickets, a rental car and make all the arrangements, but today, all I want to do is cuddle up in my bed, have a good cry and read a book.

The current plan is to fly to CA the first week in August, with the actual procedure taking place on Wednesday, and the post-ops on Thursday and Friday. So, I have 2 weeks to get ready, physically, emotionally and spiritually. Please, I know I have asked a million times before, but a few prayers would be great. Thanks. Love you all.

Hey, I say you go ahead and take that break you obviously need. There's nothing wrong with curling up in bed with a good book. It would probably be a great distraction. Your other responsibilities will still be there when you're more rested, and you'll probably be better able to deal with it all.

Good luck. Prayers and hugs.
