Out Patient Procedure Today

Dave late last night thought it would be a good idea to let the bloggers know about my day today. I told him I thought it wasn't necessary since it is not anything big. Well after thinking about it he is probably the more wise one in the household. Prayer is always a great thing.

Today at 11 am I am having an out patient procedure done at St Johns Hospital. It is very minor. I should be done with the actual procedure in less than 15 minutes. Not at all related to cancer. It was something that I was going to have done last fall prior to finding out about brain cancer and was put on hold due to the urgency of brain cancer. The great thing about it is that it is free! We have met our deductible and the maximum other 20% portion that is our responsiblity for the year. Just a doctors co pay is what this will cost. Dave and I are to arrive at 9 am for pre op. Pray that this is an easy non complicated procedure. I should be released sometime after 3 pm. I was going to have this procedure done at an out patient low key facility but due to being a high risk patient it was wise to have certain doctors on call and close expecially neurosurgeon, Dr. Forget. I will be tired for the weekend due to the anesthesia. The biggest kicker is that I couldn't have anything to eat or drink after midnight last night. I am going to be one hungry chick after the procedure. Dave might need to make a Bread Co. run off Ballas. Pray also for Dave he was asking details about the location and thoughts of the brain surgery came to mind. Reminders are sure to come.

Hi Kate and Dave,

Thinking of you right now, at 11:40 AM on Friday, and praying that you are experiencing the relief of knowing that Kate's procedure is over and went smoothly. Praying that you, Dave, are able to relax in the waiting area while Kate snoozes off the anesthesia!!
