Friends are Awesome and Thinking About the Outpatient Surgery

Well, yesterday was a great day for a Monday.  I was feeling a little down.  Was trying.  But sometimes you cannot just deny your feelings.  You try to rise above it.  So my joy meter was about a 5 - could go either way on the fence - some joy and some discontent, or a 4- Feeling like a robot, not seeing much joy in the day.  My goal is to be at least a 7 - Finding some joy and focusing on happy things, and sharing.  So it was a fluctuation I guess.  I also am not taking the vitamins, and not getting to do my cleanse day - b/c of this surgery thing.  I know that this system helps my happy meter so when I'm not able to do it all - getting all the components of nutrition in - that will make me go backwards some.  But the good thing is that friends/coworkers were around and had some good advice for a few things I was dealing with.  And that really makes you feel good when you realize people really care.  It almost surprises me sometimes.  I think I'm so used to adversity and selfishness from the world.  I have a few friends that I can see Christ in.  Oh to be like that.  I have so far to go.  But I felt as if Christ himself had touched me yesterday through a friend.  That was special.  The thing is that I had prayed for some answers, some direction, and I got it - out of the blue unsolicited through a friend.  So how special is that.  Thank you God for that! 

So my mind is shifting toward this surgery thing.  Oh gosh I dread it.  But it is what it is.  I go for the Pre Op thing tomorrow morning and the outpatient surgery is Thursday.  So pray that all goes well.  I have to have staples in my head after the removal of the cysts and will be put under.  Ugh.

I got a letter from the insurance saying "It's approved as we found it IS medically necessary but this does not necessarily mean that it will be paid for".  What???  So now I've got to call about that this morning.  I think it mainly means I have to make sure my provider is in network - did that already and you'd think the insurance would have checked that out to before getting me all riled up with the letter.  They better pay for what they are supposed to or it will not be pretty. I also know the back office people!  I have a "go to" team.

I hope I get more done at work the next two days.  If not the work stack will be sitting and rotting until I get back along with a line up of folks waiting on things and the wait will continue long after the next week.  When I'm out now it just builds and builds.  But what can you do.  It'll be there when I got back.

And I better get ready and go.  The days they are still hard to get up in the mornings.  It's been hard to go to bed on time with the time change too.  Eventually I guess it'll get better.  I'm wanting to see some spring.  We had milder temps yesterday - and it's a high of 67 today.  So maybe I can get a walk in. 

Well, hopping along to the day!  Hope you have a good one.


  1. Friends can be a blessing for sure and you are blessed to have such a good one. We are coming out of the deep freeze here with temps in the 40's today and the sun is shining. What a difference that makes. You will be seeing Spring long before we do. Hope you have a Terrific Tuesday!

    Love and hugs,

  2. being anxious about surgery is normal. youll get through this fine. just breathe.
