    Oh no, I'm so very sorry to hear you have that much more on your plate right now! I'll be thinking of you, especially as we head to the hospital Monday, too. I hope your surgery and recovery go well!!

    Oh Fifa! This is horrible news! I will add your parents to my prayer list. I find strength in your decision to continue on as planned. That is the right decision because you would be of no help in pain. Right now you have to put you first which I'm sure is easier said than done.

    We will be watching and waiting for updates. Sending positive thoughts and soft hugs.

    Fifa, I am so sorry about about your dad....

    Your right about never having a good time or right time to have surgery....trust that everything goes ok and it will happen.

    Deep breaths for now....post when you can

    Fifa,
    I'm so sorry about your dad. I tried to post a reply last evening, but it seems to be lost. In it, I encouraged you to give your worries about your dad to God. I saw that you've already done that and felt peace - amazing isn't it!
    Now, remember God loves you and no matter the outcome, HE will see you through it. You are going to be a champ and come through the surgery just fine. You may not believe that, at first.
    You are a strong, brave woman. You've done lots of research and you've reached out to others for encouragement & information. You've been so encouraging to me!
    You're ready!
    Praying that Jesus has His arms wrapped around you and your dad for comfort & healing.
    Sincerely, Peg

    Love what Peggy said, and I don't think that I can say it any better. See you on the other side... Keeping you and your family in my thoughts and prayers.

    so very sorry to read about what happened to your father...
    i hope the doctors/surgeons can help him to feel better and
    to get better....however slowly the healing happens...just so it
    happens...

    was just going to mention, based on a previous post, that
    getting a "Mia Farrow" (pixie) hair cut is so very freeing...i used
    to do it in summer when i was younger...always said women
    should try it at least once in their lifetime...(and hair does grow
    back)...it would be one less thing to have
    to deal with while recuperating from fusion surgery.

    wishing you a smooth operation and uneventful recovery....
    please take care of you....then u will be able to help your dad.

    jess...& Sparky

    Grateful for all of you!

    Hi, everyone. We're at the Parkway hotel. I'm trying to eat some last-minute jello. We arrived about 10:30 pm tonight...so late. I had to clean up loose ends at work today, pack, laundry, plus see my folks. So, we got away really late. Peggy, I'm sorry I didnt get a chance to stop by. You are welcome to come see me if you are able. Don't know when I'll be able to post again. Typing on this tablet is so slow!

    I feel relief tonight. Suddenly, all the planning, preparing, and worrying is over. Now, it is all about the healing.

    I'm having a little broth before midnight so will close for now. THANK YOU ALL for your support and prayers. I hope you all know how much you have helped me. This time tomorrow, I'll be on the other side. Please pray for me, my incredible husband, and my folks. It sure was hard to leave them tonight.

    Hopefully hubby will post an update in a day or two.

    Love, hugs, and prayers to you. Namaste!

    Fifa...who will be bionic tomorrow!!!!

    Forgot to say that I couldn't find the time this weekend to get a haircut. Really wanted a pixie at least. Oh, well. LOL

    My thoughts & prayers are with you, Fifa. You'll probably walk a little bit and sit. Hope you find a comfortable position for sleeping!
