Carol! You're so sweet to be asking us how we're doing. You're such a good friend .
I met with the pre-op doctor last week. Everything is a go. I got the green light. I did have some blood work to do and did that a few days ago. I haven't received any phone calls, so I'm assuming I look like a healthy person with no issues! HA!! Right. I'm trying to get an appointment with my surgeon (who is also my gyno), before the surgery. Just to ask a few questions and give myself some extra encouragement. Not sure if I'll be able to get in with her though. Might be a last minute talk with her as I'm laying on the table with my feet in the stirrups!!
My lupus is very quiet right now, which is an absolute God send. What isn't quiet is my Fibro. What I need to emphasize most of all with the doctors is pain control. I'm going to be very sore.... Might have to go the narcotic route, which is something I really don't want to do, but I don't want to be losing my mind with the pain either.
I'm just so glad that you are getting the green light for your transplant surgery! You and I both have to eat lots of bran muffins!! I'll remind you, if you can remind me!! Hehe..
I can do anything through Jesus Christ who strengthens me. I have learned in whatever state I am in,to be content. Phillipians 4:11-13
