My surgery is on Tuesday morning. I am started to get nervous and worried that the recovery will be worse than I am planning on...But I will be deep in prayer over the next two days..I told my girlz today that I will be going to the hospital and that if they wanted to come they could, but they would have to miss ballet. They both opted out. Good. I let them know that I would be fine, but we would have to be careful with my tummy, just like we were with AugustRose's arm.
Last week my sister was rushed to the hospital where she spent the day being tested and poked. They sort of thought she was having a stroke based on some images from her MRI, but then eliminated that idea later. Turns out she probably had a very severe concussion from a minor car accident she had the day before. For a good part of the day, we were all terrified. For a good part of the day, my sister was in a state of partial Hysterical Blindness and completely unable to function or follow neurological tests. But all is better now. But wait, she is having surgery two weeks after me to remove her thyroid. Which has a tumor on it. Which may or may not be cancerous. Oh and then there is my mother's only sister who was medi-flighted to the major teaching hospital in Gainseville Florida. Diabetic Coma. She was out for several days, but woke up on Saturday.
Seems like our family has really been on the losing end of "Healthy Livin" lately, but it has really gotten me thinking about my plans for going to Russia.
As many of you know, I had a great set of emails with the principal in St.Peterburg Russia about a teaching job. I couldn't push for the job since it was a 5th grade position, and honestly, I couldn't teach that level..So I was honest and told the principal that he would here from me in the Spring of 2011 to talk again.
But all this medical stuff has me worried what I would do if I was in Russia and a bunch of things happened..Could I find good quick care? Could I jump in a cab/metro/train/car and get to the ER with little fuss? Is anything done in Russia with little fuss?
So I have been praying a lot about it.
I hope you all check in on me and say a prayer for a speedy recovery for me...I will post as soon as I am up to it..
