Thanks for the well wishes, happy thoughts and prayers :) I am very happy to report my surgery went great last Friday and I'm recovering quite well...just in time in time for my NEXT surgery this Thursday! Believe it or not, the most sore area is where the doctor removed my med port. It's right near my collarbone and it's very uncomfortable. Other than that, I'm not feeling too badly. I'm up and around - just moving a little more slowly. I don't feel nervous about Thursday, not really. I think some of that is because I don't have too much time to dwell on the details, as everything is happening so rapidly. I'll keep everyone posted on how the next surgery goes :)


  1. can't believe i have not come over and checked on you. wow, hate it when i get so caught up in myself that i forget about others!

    your attitude sounds so positive, how great to hear. glad that you aren't nervous for thursday. what a long journey you have been on! better pray for you right now!!

  2. I'm so happy to see you update your blog! I've been checking every day, just to see if you're better.

    I am still praying. Thank you, too, for your prayers. We will chat when you're feeling better my friend.

    Love to you.


  3. Lots of love and my prayers are going out to you.
    I am so proud of you and how you have handled everything:-) you truly are awesome.
    I have had several wrong diagnoses’s lately. From Whooping cough to Pneumonia.. My chest ex ray yesterday, showed I have a cyst on my right lung and a nodule on one of my right ribs. I am going in for contrast C~Scan on Thursday. I have had a nasty cough I can’t seem to get rid of. I had a long talk with my doctor today and I am trying not to worry. Thanks for being a wonderful example to so many us, especially me.:) I will be thinking about you Thursday. God bless Michelle and good luck!

    Hugs, Beth
