Even a happy life cannot be without a measure of darkness, and the word happy would lose its meaning if it were not balanced by sadness. It is far better to take things as they come along with patience and equanimity.
Thanks so much to all of you for your support, emails, and help concerning my medical condition. I could finally see some light at the end of the tunnel. My surgery was less than two weeks away. The pain medication could keep me holding on until then.
So I thought.
A couple of days ago I got a call that the surgery had been postponed. Not for a day, not for a week, but for 3 weeks from the original date. I was devastated. I'm sure my doctor can't believe I am actually geared up and ready to have surgery..... I also don't think he can believe the severity of pain I'm in and how each day just drags on.
I was so upset the day I got the call that Matt called and pleaded with the doctor to please move it up some for me. We still haven't heard if that will happen but just the fact that my husband was so sweet and attentive to my needs makes me feel better.
So, until I hear anything else I'm gonna pray for patience and that the pain will subside enough to let me get through the next month without being miserable. But even though I'm trying to stay positive, I just want to shout out, "Sometimes, life isn't fair!"
