Surgery Tomorrow

Hello! I have been MIA again for quite awhile due to many things happening. I wanted to let everyone know that I will be having a basic reconstruction of my foot tomorrow and will be non mobile for several weeks and truly not back on my feet for several months. 

It will be a welcomed surgery, but I am very nervous as the hospital just called and due to the increase in Covid cases here, there are no visitors allowed in with me. I had been told that my husband could be with me the entire time except in surgery. Now, no one. I have to be at the hospital for an hour and a half before surgery and then I will be in surgery for about 2 hours and then recovery for about an hour. Makes me extremely scared that I will be alone before surgery. 

I will be posting some updates following surgery, but it may be a couple of weeks as I am going to my daughter's house to recuperate. I am going to stay with her for 2 weeks and then I will return home. I don't like that arrangement really, but feel that it may be the best solution as I can' t be here alone while my husband works. 

Enjoy your Thanksgiving season and I will talk to you all soon!


  1. I am so sorry! I hope all goes well and you recover very quickly! What is the problem with your foot? Glad you will be recovering somewhere with someone to look after you!

    1. Ginny, I have bunions that I have had corrected before, plus hammer toes and some plantar issues. Many things to be fixed.

  2. Wishing you well for your surgery and for a speedy recovery

  3. Will keep you in my prayers, Carol. God bless you and I pray you have a speedy recovery!

  4. Carol, Praying for you. That's what I do when I am alone waiting, I pray for people and myself too. LOL I hope your recovery is quick . It will be better for you to be with your girl than home alone trying to heal. Blessings, stay safe. xoxo, Susie

  5. I will be praying for you for your surgery and the recovery too.
    Prayers for your peace of mind and comfort that you are in the Lord's hands too.

  6. I understand your anxiety about not having your husband there but I am sure it will be all right. I suspect the staff is really aware of the anxieties their patients are having and I'm sure they're very capable. Your husband will be a short call away.

    Sending all good wishes for speedy recovery and good results in surgery.

  7. Praying that your surgery was successful and complete recovery is quick! I am sorry that you couldn't have anyone with you, I know so many who have the same issue with no visitors allowed. I am ready for the virus to move on. Sending HUGS and PRAYERS your way!


Feel free to comment and I will gladly read all of your comments and do my best to respond.

Surgery Update

 I hope everyone had a very nice Thanksgiving and was able to somehow connect with their loved ones. CO-VID has made it difficult to be with...
