Right now I am a few hours away from a fairly routine surgery but it has been 30 years since I let a surgeon stab me with a scalpel. I am not nervous per se other than the normal human reaction that one might have when someone is about to place you in a position where you have no control over the outcome. I have to trust a God and those that are in the medical profession today and I figure that God has this, as I preached yesterday.
I will be Ok.
That said when I do wake up afterwards today the hardest thing will recovery for me. Four weeks is a long time not to lift weights over 15 lbs. For me 15 lbs. is equivalent to a couple lbs. for others. I mean my one granddaughter is 15 lbs. and right now I carry her around with one arm like it is nothing. That said, I am going to try to be patient about this because that is what is needed. You can’t rush hernia recovery without risk and so I don’t want to have a do over on this. I want to be back to normal lifting by the end of the year and that means taking the recovery time seriously.
I guess I am writing about this today for a few reasons and the first one is that so I get a sense of what it is going to be like to recover and take it seriously. The second is this is like a form of down centering to use a meditation term so that I am calm and ready. Finally it is to inform you dear readers that this may be my only post for a couple of days. I am going to be pretty out of it due to the anesthesia so I may not be up to writing for a while. Of course, I have been accused of drinking my own theology before writing before, so maybe people would not notice the difference. 😉
I appreciate your prayers and your continued support.
Blessings and Cheers!!!
