The Time Has Come....

Well, we hoped that we could hold off on this surgery until May but the time has come to do it now. I will stay in the hospital and have the surgery on Monday afternoon and then be here an additional week to ten days.
I am confident in my surgeon. I told him today that many people are praying for me and they're praying for him, too. He appreciated that.
I will not be posting for a while but Mimi will give updates on her blog, Dandelion Wishes. (You need to go there and see the cute stuff she makes!)
I can't begin to tell you how much your comments, best wishes and prayers have meant to me. I am in the loving hands of God and I know he'll see me through this.
Nancy-I love your new Happy Homemaker tag for April!! I will catch up, I promise!
Suz-You and Jud are in my prayers daily.
PJ-My heart is hurting for you...I will be in touch as soon as I am able. Just know that you have been in my prayers
Marie-Slow and steady wins the race...you're getting there even though it seems endless.Prayers are said for you daily.
Thank you all for your outpouring of love and care!

Hello Joyce,

I popped over to your blog and even though I have only come here a couple of times had to stop when I read you were getting ready for surgery. I had diverticulitis and it resulted in a colon re-section. It has been 2 years, it did take a lot longer than I thought to not be tired, but nothing feels better than feeling like a human being again and oh food tastes so good! If you ever have questions or want to say UGH! this stinks! Please email me. I wish you the best and will pray for you. Rest and take care. I will peek at your friends blog to see how you are doing. HUGS! Amy :)

Charlotte said...

I came here from Nan E's blog. She was soliciting prayers for you and your surgery. By now you've already had the surgery. I pray it went well and you will have a speedy recovery.
Blessings,
Charlotte

Mimi Sue said...

Hope you are doing well and getting better and stronger everyday. Our prayers have been coming your way! Won't it be great when you're feeling 100% again?! Rest and recuperate. Mimi

Katsui Jewelry said...

Oh, thank you, dear Joy. I am so sorry about this but you are in good hands...both God's and the surgeons!

Big hugs,

Nan said...

Joyce was just thinking of you and how things are going for you?

Suz said...

Joyce,
I am so glad to hear from you and hope things are going well.I was just thinking of you yesterday and hoping things were progressing. I hoe the surgery accomplished what you hoped it would and this is on the other side.

Thank you so much for the very sweet note from you on Jud's birthday. He felt good that day, which was lovely! He has chemo one week, then is off the next. Sometimes the second week is a vacation and sometimes if if not!

We are off to lunch for Mother's Day, treasuring each day...except when we are crabby!!!

XO,
Suz
