So we made an appointment with the surgeon and set a date for November 13th, 2017. I informed my boss and everyone else.
During the next couple weeks there was a lot going through my head.
Whether I was making the correct decision, or was it going to be a mistake. What would happen if something went wrong and I couldn’t walk again, was on crutches or wheelchair for the rest of my life? Or ultimately, what if I didn’t make it out of surgery?
I kept these feelings to myself, as I didn’t want anyone to worry. So I did what I always do in those times, prayed.
I prayed a lot, for not only just the surgery itself, but everyone else. It helped calm me and I realized I would be fine. I knew I was supposed to have surgery or God would have healed it completely before. I tried for a year to get things to quit hurting so I wouldn’t have to. But I learned to trust God as his plans are greater than mine!
The week before the surgery my family and I deep cleaned the whole house, did all the laundry, went shopping for food, and spent some time together.
Which I recommend anyone who has this surgery, if you can, to deep clean your house and go shopping prior.
I will go over a shopping list recommended next time.
