Well folks, here I am the day of surgery. It is now 7 a.m. here in SW IA and I have told the family the car leaves at 9:30 to be there at 11. Surgery said to be at 1 p.m.
Yesterday as you all know was quite a day. My biggest woes were that I did not have much food in the system so there was not much for trips to the bathroom, guess that was a good point. And I had a whopper of a headache because I could not have that coffee. I usually put away at least 6 cups a day during the week and more on the weekend.
So here I sit ready to head off to Omaha. Seems like beginning of October when I was diagnosed was just yesterday. At that time I thought Dec 13 was so far off. So those that are waiting, it will come sooner than you expect.
I know there are a lot of prayer warriors at my work, church, family, and friends I have made over the years, AND you all. With that many speaking to GOD I know that success will be ours.
I unfortunately cannot remember but one of our members has in his signature something that has helped me these months.
'Cancer is what we have, cancer survivor is what we will be.'
Take care my friends and see you all on the 'OTHER SIDE'.
