Steve and I had locked on a timeshare condo for December a couple of months ago. I also found out back then that I needed surgery (endarterectomy) to clear a partially blocked carotid artery. I had the surgery on the opposite side 23 years ago so I know what to expect. Even though it's not absolutely necessary now, I've decided it's best to continue to have it Dec 15th. There is an RN who will take me to the hospital and pick me up when I'm released a day or two later - and since she lives across the street from my unit - will periodically check on me.

I decided to post to let you know because I'm still receiving your condolence cards. Just today I got a pm that a package is on it's way to me. My mail will be on hold for 30 days starting Dec 8th. I so much appreciate everyone's continued support ... Bless you all.

Continuing to pray for you, dear one. Trusting all will go well, and so grateful that your RN friend will be around to look after you!

Yes me too, I am glad you have a trusted and medically knowledgeable friend to keep tabs on you for your surgery. Good luck with everything. We will all still be here when your life calms down a bit and please know you are in all our thoughts. If life gets too rough remember we are here for you to scream to, to get it out of your system.
