Hospital And Prayers

As I sit here at 4:30 in the morning, I am waiting to go to the hospital to get my defibrillator implanted. It is something that I am not looking forward to. I am a worry wart by nature, but this has been the worst that I have ever been. Hubby and I had a nice weekend getaway at Niagara Falls courtesy of our two children. It is our 25th anniversary tomorrow. It was so nice and relaxing, just what I needed before having to get this procedure done. I have done some thinking and have realized that some people that I thought were my friends, have not even said one word to me about this. Not a “thinking of you” or “will you need anything?” or even a “call me if you need anything”. I am not sure if they can’t handle something of this nature, or if true colors have come out. Having been told that I need to have this done has made me realize who and what is important in my life. This has definitely been a time to reflect. A time for prayer. A time to stop and smell the roses again. I did all of this after my heart attack almost a year and a half ago. I sometimes wonder if God makes some of us stop and smell those roses several times in our lives for reasons. I have always believed that there are reasons for everything. I just sometimes wonder what the reason is.

I will be on again sometime this week, so until then, keep me in your thoughts and prayers.

  1. I’ve been thinking about you and praying for you.
    My husbands supervisor had this surgery about 3-4 years ago for a birth defect he just found out about when he was 55. He is doing great after his surgery, just has to avoid microwaves and green leafy veggies. I hope you recover quickly and do as well as he has.

    • Thank you Rhonda. I am doing well considering what I went through. I will spare the details, but I feel ok. I just can’t wait to get the staples out then I will feel a lot better.
