Just so you know: October 5th

(from CaringBridge 2018)

A few folks have not seen or didn't notice the pop-up notification when you first log on so I though I better make sure everyone has seen this:

Surgery has been set for Friday October 5th (with a curiously specific arrival time: 9:20 am.)

I will post more about the timeline as I learn more - but then again, so much is conjecture. When I'm released from Intensive Care to a room, when I get out of the hospital, if I need to go to skilled nursing or home...it all depends on how it goes.

Also -- the surgery date COULD BE MODIFIED depending on how the cardiology appointment(s) go. At minimum I must have a full cardiac stress test (not doing the treadmill one, nope) and perhaps have an "cardiac intervention review" or some such appointment.

Please keep sending me song suggestions (per Sept 22 post). It is so uplifting and comforting to hear a song you feel will be healing for me.

I decided - because of feedback from y'all - that I will use the "mellow" music during my day(s) in recovery (probably not in surgery). But as I started reviewing my personal collection, and some of your suggestions, I find there are awesome favorite "perky" songs I can listen to that will cheer me up. I'm making two song-lists for my hospital time, then, depending on if I am needing to chill during pain med induced sleep (etc.) or when I want to wake up and face the music (literally).

SO, if you have a song (ok, with English words!) that really communicates your heart, or you think would cheer me up --> please send it. I would love to have the love-song from you with me!!

Tonight's visualization is about getting many things done, stress free. The prayer is a song I found today which had me bawling, one that reaches out from my heart to YOU.

BTW, I am ecumenical believer in prayer. One caring person asked if that was ok even as an agnostic or atheist. Sure! Everyone can pray - prayer is really just an intimate way to express Love -- in and to your own heart. Whoever needs to hear it -- will
