‘Twas the Night Before Surgery

Here I sit the night before surgery, parents have arrived safely, I completed my pre-admission to the hospital and now I sit and wait.  There’s not a lot I can do at this point but wait, maybe sleep soon. 

Today was one of the best days, 22 of my collegues shaved their heads to show their love and support for me.  I was touched and found myself not willing to let them do it without getting in on the action.  As many know my hair was falling out rapidly.  I had not had the courage to let any one see me without my wig or cap on but today that all changed as I took off my wig and jumped in line to get my head shaved.  It was so awesome to share that with all of them.  I could never express in words how full my heart is. 

My parents arrived this evening after a long drive from Florida.  I know it can’t be easy for them to have to watch from a distance.  The Lord has provided them opportunities to come often in the next couple months and we celebrate these opportunities.

“I am still confident of this; I will see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living.  Wait for the Lord; be strong and take heart and wait for the Lord.”  –Psalm 27:13-14
