    Not what I needed to hear my doctor say this week. I had surgery may 2014, and again january 2015. So, this is my third abdominal surgery in 18 months. I go in January 28 and my husband will be with me, I think my daughter will spend the night and then my sister in law will take over. I am not in a good place with my dementia right now for a lot of different things, but mainly for not taking care of myself, over doing it and not doing what I needed to do to remain stable. I was in the midst of trying to get back on track when this happened ....

    I don't deal,with the pain that good anymore and don't come out of the Anesthesia effects fast. I need this surgery so I am asking for prayers. I will do my part... I have to let go of the things that are eating at me, pray for strength from God, do my daily quiet meditation and come here to be with those that understand ...

    As always, thank you for being here for me

    Sometimes events seem so dreadfully unfair. You've got a good family rooting for you and lots of friends here too. Best wishes.
