We'll be thinking of u.

When I am going through something painful or I'm scared it will be painful, I always think abt Tuck and Justie and how brave both have always been. I visualize them and that always makes me feel better. 

A few years ago when I was having an MRI it was excruciating. I had herniated a couple disks and being on my back was so painful. So during the MRI I had this mantra of "Tuck, Tuck, Tuck" that I said out loud to remind me to be strong like Tuck.  It occurred to me after I left that the person doing the MRI probably thought I was saying ummm something that started with an "f". LOL.

Think abt Reecey... he will be there with u.

hugs!

Cindy isn't an update I got a call last minute from UAMS they had a surgeon who feels he can do it all in one procedure no drain. So naturally I was so thankful not to have to go that route. If he cannot I'll have to. But this surgeon contacted me so I have high hopes! I go Thursday for consult!

 I wanted to thank everyone for your prayers and give you all an update! I shared last Thursday I had an appointment and the scheduled surgery for me later in the month. We left the clinic and headed back home. I had been several days no water or food so we tried something lite in Conway. We were about to get in the car to head on back when my phone rang. It was the surgeons office. My labs were critical and they said I needed to be admitted into the hospital.

Well I truly debated even going back, mom insisted. So here we were mom Jason and I headed to check in we had no idea where they would be able to stay and frankly I was more concerned about that than anything. We finally figured out where to park and where to go and I got all checked in. Much to my surprise there was a super large and very clean room with a recliner and fold out couch and they even accommodated mom with her oxygen. God met that need. We were able to meet with some of the surgeons team they explained why I needed to be there. I had jaundiced, stone induced pancreatitis and my liver and white cell count were both very high. I knew I had been sick and in a lot of pain. After a few more scans they toggled back and forth between putting a drain in my liver to decompress or surgery. Apparently my ducts were so small the radiology team didn't want to do the drain I must admit I was glad of that. Finally on Friday night they came in and said we are going to do surgery. He explained the procedure and the exploration of my bile duct. He said there is a 1/4 chance I cannot get that out. I headed out for surgery that morning, have been so blessed by those praying for me! I came out and when I woke up they had placed the drain tube and removed my gallbladder and done the exploration of my bile duct. He retrieved part of a stone but said there was more he could t get because of all the inflammation. They said we will keep you till Tuesday go back in and try again. Oh I was so disappointed! This nightmare has been going on so long! So Sunday morning this smiling ear to ear surgeon comes in and says your prayers have been answered. He said I blew you these images from your surgery about 2 am but wanted to let you sleep. He pulls up these on the computer and says what I thought was a stone left wasn't. He said you are stone free and you can go home! I hugged him twice! I just kept saying thank you thank you. He said it wasn't me! He and I both knew who did this miracle! Dr Sexton at UAMS in my book is the best of general surgeon you will ever find! I'm most thankful though for the Master Surgeon who is still in the miracle working business!  I know God had a plan and worked it out for my good. The plan included the best of care from the folks at UAMS. And I made some new and special friends the past few days! I had the best of the best care!  I am so happy to be at home recouping! Feeling so thankful and so very blessed!

I am so glad it's all over. It's a shame in the beginning they dragged their feet and u ended up having jaundice, but at least finally everything is ok.

Been praying every day for u. I am glad everything worked out with the room and ur mom's oxygen-it was meant to happen.

Rest and take good care of urself.

sending love and hugs!
