Well… here we go again! Surgery Day! This is getting all too common lately. I guess it could be worse as this is only Patty’s fourth cancer related surgery. We should feel fortunate as there’s women out there who have had many more surgeries throughout their journey with breast cancer.
Patty’s surgery is scheduled for 1:30 this afternoon. There’s always going to be some anxiety associated with surgery and this surgery is no different. It’s pushing 11:00 a.m. right now and Patty’s trying to keep as busy as possible to pass the time. Waiting is always the hardest part pre-surgery. Her surgery last month was scheduled for 7:00 a.m. which was good. The wait was still draining, but at least it was early in the morning. This time you can literally hear the clock ticking away, second by second… tick, tick, tick! I’m finding those “ticks” get louder as the waiting continues.
This surgery is scheduled to last between an hour and an hour and a half. I’ve already prayed that things go as well or better than anticipated and that Patty’s recovery is quick with little or no pain! Hey… it doesn’t hurt to ask!
I’ll keep you posted on how things turn out.
