The body is an interesting thing. Here I am, two weeks (minus one day) before my surgery date and I feel almost normal. Very minimal pain upon wakening and only a twinge here and there in the right leg while walking the dogs. I must admit, its days like this that I wonder if I’m doing the right thing with surgery. Then I remember just yesterday when I was so sore and lethargic that all I wanted to do was lie in bed. Some folks believe in the power of prayer, some believe in positive thinking and meditation and others don’t believe in any of it and that things will just be what they are. I believe in all of it. I believe there is a God who has the power to heal and I believe in prayer, meditating, positive thinking and that the universe gives you exactly what you need at exactly the right time. During the past few months, I’ve been super focused on if surgery was the right path to take. So many things have fallen into place to make me believe that yes, surgery is what I need and I’m grateful for that peace of mind. So, while I wait for February 28th to get here, I plan to continue in prayer, meditation and positive thinking that I’m doing the right thing and that I’m in good hands. I’ll take the days like today with no pain and relish in them and know that on the days when I hurt, relief is on the horizon!
