Hello to everyone.We of course are back.
All went so very well.This hospital is awesome.
They go out of their way to make you feel safe ,
secure and informed.I had many more tests
encluding the 6 min walk.With Gods help
and the assistant I made it with NO
oxygen----------------.At 3 minutes
I was done in.The assistant told me
a different way to breath and counted down
out loud for me.He was a fabulous
cheerleader.Otherwise,i could've NEVER
have made it.
We were all ao tired.Both my girls
took me this time.They lugged me,the wheel chair,
the tank I was using and 8 other tanks around.
Every eat,drink,or potty break.They
took wonderful care of me and
kept me laughing so hard I was sore.
We had a great time out of an otherwise
scary situation.
I have to go back one more time.This timeI will be
put to sleep.They will put a camera in my hip artery
to see if there is any blockage.After 4 hrs.I can
leave for the night,we think.
The drs.will meet Monday and see all the test
results.If I don"t have an infection and
there is no blockage they will operate the day
after the 4 hr test.
Here is the hard question!Do I pray it's an infection .
It will make it longer to get the surgery!Or do I pray
for cancer so we can get it over?I think I'll just leave that
one alone.ha.Leave it all in Gods hands.
Now I want to share with you all some priceless moments.
There were 2 beds in the motel of course.My oldest daughter slept
in one bed.My baby daughter in the other with me.My
oxygen tank held 5 hrs.Of course I ran out before morning.
When I ran out,I said,Deb.She got up,just like a little robot,
traveled around the bed to my side.
Have you seen soldiers on tv put their guns together
with exact oersision with self assured hands?Thats what
her little hands looked like to me.She finished
changing the tank.Trotted right back to her side of the bed
and slid in like it was an everyday event.
And everytime I would move or grunt one
or the other would softly say,"are you ok?'I felt
so loved and so thankful for my precious girls.
I can see God working like our loves almost
as if I were watching on t.v.I can look back and
see exactly his steps leading me to this dr and to
this hospital.I feel so very safe and loved.Thank
you all for being such a part of this amazing feeling.I love each
and everyone of you...Ann

Oh Ann, I know how much your daughters love you. How could they not? You are such a beautiful person - you had to be a wonderful mother. Your greatfulness for their help has touched my heart, and I'm sure it's touched theirs as well (I just hope it hasn't brought them to tears as it has me!) It is all in God's hands, and we know that He is hearing the prayers of a lot of people who love you. Love ya, laurie

O'w Ann, I am glad you are on your road to feeling well again. Positive mind, positive works is a great motivator to getting well and only God can provide that when we are sick. Best of Luck and I prayerfully ask that all involved be guided by God's hands and that he give them wisdom and knowledge beyond their years.

Dear Ann, Your story of the night in the motel with your daughters reminds me of a really good movie -- one that makes us smile as we wipe away the tears. I hope the next step in your journey goes well. I'll be thinking of you.

Ann said...

Best wishes and you are lucky to have a wonderful family beside you during those times. I just whispered a little prayer for you:)

Connie said...

Ann, Please know I am thinking of you and will continue to do so. You are a very brave lady and have a wonderful support team with your family. You certainly have tons of support here with all your friends pulling for you.
I will keep you in my prayers and I just know you will be fine. Know that many people love you even those who live far away, like me.
