Surgery is tommorow

I think that I have cried enough to keep the fields wet for the entire summer. I am really nervous. I am having vein mapping done this afternoon and my surgery is scheduled for tommorow. I dont think that I have ever been so nervous in my life. I know that they have done these surgeries for years and that I am susposed to be grateful that they found this and I have a chance to fix it before it ruptures. But it is not helping me feel better. I have a raging stress headache and my mind just wont stop.. My kids are a mess and I trying so hard to be strong for them and I am just a plain old basket case and having a hard time keeping it together. I f

I am having a hard time finding the courage to go into this. I sit and say I feel fine, I dont have any issues and this giant timebomb in my head has casued me no issues other then some blury vission at time that I thought was due to having high blood sugar. Anyways I am just venting my frustraions out. Please pray that all goes well for me and that I can get past this hurdle in my life.

I am praying for peace to wash over you today as you prepare for your surgery and that you get a good nights sleep tonight. I am not sure which surgery you decided to go with, but, I also, pray for your surgeon to have a restful nights sleep and be well prepared for the the surgery tomorrow an that the surgeon's hands are steady and that there are no complications and that everything goes according to plan.

May God bless you and your family,


I am having bypass and occlusion thanks for the thought and prayers I need all I can get

Hi MB- I just had my surgery last Monday. I am now home resting. I held it together until the morning of surgery. That is when I broke down. I won’t lie, recovery has been rough. As a stay at home mom, it has been tough just resting and letting others do for me. Th pain is bearable and the swelling is going down. I am taking it hour by hour. You and your family will get through this. I wish you all the best for a successful surgery and quick recovery.

Thanks so much. I am sitting here and the doctor just left. Sitting here the day before the surgery is tough. I would be better suited at home with my children but I got a book and my cell phone so here it goes. Praying it won’t be as bad as I envison

Hi MB!

My prayers go out to you --I can imagine its really got to be hard for you having to wait it out at the hospital, I hope things go well for you and the procedure is very uneventful and your recovery a very swift one! Lots of healing vibes being sent your way ! Peace, Janet

Saying prayers for a successful surgery & a peaceful recovery. My thoughts are with you. I can’t imagine how hard it must be to have to wait. The only symptom I had prior to one of mine rupturing was a headache. Then I have 20 days after that that I have no recollection of. So glad you are able to take care of it before it ruptured.

Thanks so much. This site has been a blessing in disguise. I have to say that having somewhere to vent and knowing that someone is listening is what I newsworthiness so much for your kind words

Praying for you and your family!!! Lucy

Thanks so much.

Praying for you. I know exactly how you feel. I am having an unruptured one coiled June 7th and I am a nervous wreck. I have waited 5 months to have the surgery by choice. My prayers will be with you and your family. You can do this!! I keep telling myself, " I just have to close my eyes and I will wake up and it will be over!"

Praying now for you and yours~ You can do it! I am glad you wrote here so we can pray with you~ Also praying for the steady hand and keen eye of the surgical team and for quick recovery and coping for the future, let us know as soon as you are able please-or have someone else do it-don't be reluctant to ask others for help- it is a team effort!

Prayers and thoughts are headed your way today! You will be okay! xo
