Tomorrows The Day

Tomorrow is the day we have all been dreading. We have to be at the hospital at ten thirty. It's kind of hard to believe this is going to happen. It's eerie how things are continuing on as normal. I know, what else can we do, but you would expect things to be a little different. Instead, we are all just carrying on as normal. Like something this big wasn't even going to happen!

I also know that after the surgery happens things will be normal too, but it feels as though it should be this major, life changing event. I'm a little scared to see what she will look like after the surgery. It's all just so surreal and hard to believe. I want the surgeon to come out and say he doesn't have to do it and that the wound is healing fine now, but that won't happen. Instead, he will cut off what he has to, she will heal and life will just keep on going as we knew it before. Life is such a trip sometimes.

I remember when a close relative crushed his hand putting in his well. He lost the end of his finger, though the doctor did a good job in saving the rest of it. However, like most animals, we humans are incredibly adaptive. We learn how to compensate and move on. Well, at least if we don't stop altogether, focus on what was or what we want it to be rather than what is , and forget to keep moving. Just like my relative ended up reopening the skin graft on his hand a couple months later - playing basketball with his, at the time, younger relatives. (ahem)

Hope all goes well and she recovers very quickly.

Oh. Keep in mind and in your heart, the promise of God that he will save us if we do believe Him and pray.

I know, it's amazing how well we can learn to live with things. I know two people who have lost a finger and they don't seem bothered by it. One is a 92 year old lady. She was my Grandma's friend. My Grandma said she thinks she was using a sewing machine and the needle went through her finger. Though, I don't know why that would cause her to lose it.

I have a friend whose brother-in-law had a toe amputated, then he had to have a second toe amputated, the half his foot. He seems to be doing fine now, but is undergoing therapy to learn how to walk in his current state. It is diabetes, and it started with him whacking his toenail.

Wow! Poor guy. Diabetes is such a nightmare! I hope they can cure it some day.
