Please say a prayer...

Tomorrow is a BIG day for our family.

My father-in-law starts chemo.

I have surgery scheduled for 1:00 p.m. (a little nervous about that!)

And my kiddos will be enduring their second day of school. (6th and 8th grade, what a hard age.)

UGH! Please pray that our family doesn't go crazy with the timing of it all. As I told my hubby last night, through a few tears, "there is too much going on, I can't focus on ANYTHING!"

Overall, I am doing well. I have stuck with the doctor diet the last few weeks. I have done my best to prepare for this day. I have even kept busy so as not to dwell on it all (I have told you all before about my fear of doctors, needles and hospitals, right?!). Anyway, today is filled with a little bill paying (doctors want their money upfront these days, it seems...), laundry washing (last time I visited the hospital hotel we were caught off guard and Kev had to go shopping for underwear and a change of clothes) and stocking the refrigerator with the basics (so of course dad doesn't have to do last minute shopping to feed the tribe upon our return).

I am not sure when I will return, but I am sure to have plenty recovery time to play catch up here in blogland. Thanks for all the support and prayers.

GOD IS GOOD ALL THE TIME.
