Brandon and I are in Arkansas, safely. Resting and visiting at his cousin’s house (the best man’s house). tomorrow morning we will check Brandon into the hotel called The Guest House that is literally right off the hospital campus. Then I will be admitted into the hospital through the ER and get all hooked up and start on steroids to prep for surgery.
I am so thankful that this surgery has been scheduled instead of like last time where it was all rushed and immediate – i didnt even get to shave my legs last time (gross!) this time, I was able to pack, I’ve showered and shaved my legs, and I have a little better understanding of what is going to happen.
Brandon won’t be having to go back and forth between work and the hospital this time so he can just stay with me the whole time – which will be a huge support and comfort to me.
All in all, while I’m still very scared and anxious, there are a lot of little pluses and blessings to be appreciated and thankful for. I feel more prepared which puts me a little more at ease.
Praise God for all he’s done for me through this whole experience- no pain, safe travels, a fantastic support group, family, and church family. I could go on and on.
