Today is surgery day. We drove out to Rochester on Tuesday, which was a great decision as Tiah’s family had to fight the weather driving here on Wednesday. We also wanted to be able to relax a bit before a couple pre-surgery appointments. They told us to call in between 8:15 and midnight to find when to be at the hospital.
It’s a bit of a cruel joke. Sure I’ll be put under and essentially be sleeping half the day, but I still didn’t want to be awake right now (4am). I didn’t sleep well though, so I suppose it’s a moot point. We’ve become familiar with the Mayo Clinic Campus, but the surgery will be at the St Marys hospital, so we’re making sure to be up in plenty of time to figure out where we’re parking and get where we need to be. Hopefully the weather in ND yesterday hasn’t made it over here during the night.
So that leaves us with how you can pray in the coming days.
- That the surgery goes smoothly and without complications.
- That the following days of recovery are amazing and I spend as little time here as possible.
- That Tiah will leave the hospital on occasion. Anyone might feel guilty for doing something else when a loved one has been admitted for surgery, but it’s not healthy to spend all of your time there with them.
