Finally... An End In Sight!

(Source)

I'm so thrilled!  
I talked with the surgeon and received great news!  There’s finally an end in sight!!!  The pipida scan results indicated I have a malfunctioning gallbladder.  This is in addition to what's causing the pain I've felt for the last 11 weeks and the surgeon feels it may be an occult inguinal hernia.  During surgery she'll be looking for/removing/fixing:
occult inguinal hernia
surgical adhesions
endometriosis 
gallbladder 
possible appendix issues
and some other medical terms I can't remember.
 
The official date of surgery is next Monday, June 10 at 10:45 with a recovery time of 4 to 6 weeks.  YAY!
 
I'm SO thrilled we finally have some kind of resolution!  It feels like there will actually be an end to this constant pain.  Don't get me wrong, I'm not stoked for the actual surgery and the pain that follows, but knowing it will mean I'm another step closer to my dreams ignites my soul and spirit!  
 
This is a moment I clearly see God's timing at work.  It's a moment I feel so blessed to have held on and not given up.  I hold onto hope believing God will continue to take care of my needs.  I have no doubts He will get me through this next challenging time.

  2. PRAISE GOD!!!! I am so thrilled that you have an answer and recovery is around the corner. The thought of you being in surgery hurts, but not as much as seeing you experience so much pain for all this time. I pray that all those things that need fixing or removal will be taken care of and that God will heal you like brand new! Speedy recovery dear one!!!

  3. Will be thinking of you today in your surgery and wishing you a speedy recovery. I had my gallbladder out last Monday and I am still recovering. I was told by people that I would feel like running a marathon in 4 days...they were wrong lol. I felt great on Saturday and over did it now I am paying for it. So a word to the wise...take it easy and recover. Do not over due too quickly as I have. Best wishes!

    1. Thanks so much! Today makes seven days and I certainly don't feel anywhere close to marathon status! I've been doing my best to stay still and rest, but as I start feeling better, I want to do more and then I regret it. But I suppose I had to learn the hard way! I thought I learned that during last year's surgery!!! Thanks again for the kind words!
