Upcoming surgery

Wed Nov 03, 2021 1:28 pm
This is a great community. Consider joining.

Hi friends,

I'm going into Boston tomorrow for a right lower lobectomy on my lung in hopes of removing cancer that has metastasized in hopes of getting off the chemo I have been on for so long.

If any of you pray, I will hope you say one for me! Although I am terrified ( as I've been through the trauma of several surgeries), I am positive and hopeful for success and a quick recovery.

It is always so nice to hear from you all. Don't have too much fun while I'm gone and I will check in as soon as I'm able.

Oh one more thing.... I have wagers on the Premier league- Manchester City ( my team) vs Manchester United for the derby on Saturday. Please say a prayer for MC to win!! Bottles of patron are on the line and I'd rather be drinking margaritas than serving them! Lol!!!! 
God bless you all! Life is good!

😇

These are the top 5 issues ostomates face:

1. Dating and relationships
2. Concealing the pouch
3. Foods to eat and avoid
4. Losing or gaining weight
5. Pouch ballooning

Best of luck to you!  I had my ostomy operations in a Boston hospital so I know you are in good hands.  I will say an extra prayer for you and your quick recovery.  God Bless you.

Earth angel,

If you seek God's healing, say a prayer of faith and KNOW that the Lord will raise you. 

Jeremiah 17:14 KJV

Heal me, O Lord, and I shall be healed; save me, and I shall be saved; for thou art my praise.

Be not afraid!

Isaiah 41:10 KJV

Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee;  yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness.

And remember that by His sacrifice we are healed.

Isiah 53:10 KJV

But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon Him;  and with His stripes we are healed.

I hope these scriptures give you peace, and know that I'm praying with you for a successful outcome.

E& I

E&I,

Those are beautiful scriptures and I will be reading and re reading them over again for comfort. Thank you so much for taking the time to send!

 I pray your surgery goes well and you have a speedy recovery 3 John 1:2. “Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth.”

Oh Heavenly Father Our Precious Lord Jesus.  Our understanding is such that we do not understand all the things we go thru but Lord we know You are always with us and can calm our fears.  Touch Earth Angel in a mighty way. Send the Holy Spirit to surround her with Your presence to comfort her. In Jesus name. Amen

 Isaiah 41:13-14 “’For I am the Lord, your God, who takes hold of your right hand and says to you, Do not fear; I will help you.  Do not be afraid, for I myself will help you,’ declares the Lord, your Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel.”

I love to find a scripture that I can visualize in my head and love that He will take hold of our hand and comfort us and help us.

 

God bless

Manchester City are odds-on favourites everywhere, Earth Angel, which by the way is a lovely name to go by. Christiano Ronaldo, the Portuguese man-o-war with United is the one to fear, you know what he is capable of. They paid 20million US to have him released from his previous club. I have a strategy for it: Play a draw initially and keep your fingers crossed, if it is 0-0 at half-time you get to win on all three results! Let us see how it works tomorrow. Works only when teams are fairly evenly matched.

Thank you bowsprit for your interesting strategy. No matter what MC is my team so I'm sticking with them and will keep the faith til the very end! I'm secretly hoping CR twists an ankle lol! Hopefully the boys will start playing better!

Earth Angel,

I hope your surgery went well.  I have Mets to my lungs too, eh maybe one day they'll be under control or better yet will magically disappear!  Wouldn't that be grand!

In the meantime drink those margaritas!!  Sending you prayers and magic pixie dust for a successful recovery.

Charleston sunny,

Thank you so very much for your kind words! I am sorry your in the Mets club too. I hope your spots disappear!!! I am recovering now, surgery went well. I'll be happy when they remove the chest tube! 
If I were Tinkerbell I'd sprinkle some pixie dust on us both! Take care!

Congratulations, City did it. Fortunately, my strategy didn't get a chance today, had to go to a wedding reception and missed the match, it was at an old British-era stately club, no mobiles allowed. Will inform next time it goes into action. Best wishes.

Sat Nov 06, 2021 5:46 pm

Hi bowsprit,

yay! I knew they could pull it off! They did awesome! MU played horribly! They were so stagnant. I'm sorry you missed the match! Hope your wedding was fun anyway!

Thanks for the well wishes! I appreciate it so very much!
