It's Time

Tomorrow I'm going in for surgery.

In a way, I can't believe it's actually going to happen. I'm not nervous about the surgery - I'm ready for it. I received 2 blessings (one from my home teacher last night and one from my dad today) that were very comforting and brought me a lot of peace.I love priesthood blessings. It was especially sweet to get one from my dad.

As unpleasant as the last week has been (partaking of just SlimFast, water, and popsicles), it has proven my resolve and prepared me for the path ahead. I'm sure it's still going to be tough sometimes, but at this point I'm not having any second thoughts or doubts.

Thank heavens!

So, since I may not blog for awhile, I want to wish everyone...

MERRY CHRISTMAS!!

Oh, Yay! So glad you are feeling calm and assured. Priesthood blessings are just that - a real blessing. I'll be thinking about you all day tomorrow and wishing you all the best.

Merry Christmas, Julie.

I hope everything went well. I was thinking about you yesterday. Let me know when you can have real food again and I'll bring you some of Ryan's jerky.
