My mortality

8/29/2011



These last few weeks have been tough for me, I have lived a pretty healthy life. I have only had to go to the doctors once, for stitches when I was about 5. I have been very lucky. It has finally caught up with me and it is my turn to carry the burden of health issues. I am having my gall bladder removed this Friday, since having a serious attack about two and a half weeks ago I have lost over 15 lbs. I got bloodwork back yesterday and my liver is also having some issues more than what would be normal while having gall stones so there is some worry there as well.
While I know this surgery is very routine none the less the fact that I will be put under worries me, what if I don't wake up? With three very young kids I want to make sure if the unimaginable happens they have photos with me and each their own letter for them to read whenever they want. as a mother it breaks my heart to know that the boys will probably have no memories of me if something does happen and photos and videos will be all they have.

I know everything will happen as it should and because of that I want to make sure I do what I can. It will be quiet around here until after the surgery, family time in full force as well as a sweet little girl starting kindergarten this week.

I know a lot is going on in the world and prayer lists are long but if you can I would love if you could squeeze my family in there it would mean so much to us.

Love you all!

Good luck on a quick and uneventful surgery. Hope you are in and out and ready to go forward with family and art very soon.
