So I’m sitting at Wesley with a million and one things to do and that’s what I love about my job. However I’m just sitting here eating peanut m&m’s and am thinking how wonderful all of you are to be praying for me. I kind of don’t want to let any of the surgeons or medical people know about all this because feel the pressure! =0) It’s completely surreal that this is happening and that there are facebook groups being created to pray for me. This can’t be my life.
But it is, and in the midst of everything I feel y’all’s love and support hugely! It’s been great to catch up with friends from high school and college and grad school and my work at Emory and all of my wonderful Winthrop folks. One of my favorite messages is from my friend Jan who I met while working in Religious Life at Emory. Jan is Jewish and wonderful! She said she’s sending up some Jewish prayers! Hey if God’s chosen people are praying – tee hee…. The thing that is wonderful is that I love all of you. Each of you has touched my life in intricate ways and this tapestry of love that is being created around me is powerful. Again, no pressure doctors.
Just want to give each of you a hug. One more hour of work before time to go give a copy of the MRI/CT Scan CD to the neurosurgeon. Oh yes – there are pictures of my brain and the tumor on the CD. If I could figure out how to post them I would, but I don’t have those mad kind of computer skills. For some people it helps to see it and wrap the mind around it (it made me feel better like I wasn’t crazy for having a seizure and falling out of a bed randomly) but then padre didn’t feel better after seeing it – totally understandable. So back to work and then off to deliver some pictures and find out what I need to do for pre-op!
Love this video. And her story. And that she’s from South Carolina. Check it out http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e00JWpre67U.
