Good Morning to everyone! I started a discussion a couple of weeks ago saying that I will be having surgery, well tomorrow is the day. I have to be at the hospital at 9:00 a.m. unless they call me in the morning and tell me to come earlier. My doctor has said I will be in the hospital overnight for sure and possibly two nights. I believe this is because of the procedure itself and also because I am a diabetic. I wanted to let all of you know so you will not wonder why when I'm not on here for a couple of days. I'm going to try to be on here today when I'm not at church and not typing my medical reports as much as possible. My daughter is also a member here on MyLot and she will be at home during the day. I will ask her to post an update tomorrow after I have had the procedure to let you know that it is over. Hope you all have a wonderful Sunday and a terrific week!! SheliaLee

My thoughts and Prayers are with you. Being Diabetic can be a Big issue when it comes to Surgery, but I am sure everything will be alright. Just keep positive, and remember God is in control.

SheliaLee, I pray that God will anoit the surgeons hands during your surgery and may there be devine order with the entire medical team taking care of you. May the Lord anoit your body for a speedy healing. Having been through several surgeries my self the last 2years, I know the power of prayer. God is a master healer. Take it easy and rest as much as you can, it's part of the healing process. May God shower many blessngs upon you. Please`let us know how you are doing when you feel up to it.

Wish you good luck and a speedy recovery. I do not know what surgery you are going to have. But I can feel completely the little nervousness you must be having if any. My father recently had a major surgery of heart. So I know good wishes and loving words help. Lots of good wishes to you and hope your surgery is a big success. Do let me know once you are back.

I wish you well with your surgery. I hope all goes smoothly and I'm sending you good thoughts. Here's hoping that you have a quick recovery and you can come back to Mylot in no time. Also, I hope you don't have to stay in the hospital more than one night. You will recuperate much faster at home. Good luck!

I'll pray that everything goes off without a hitch. I hate surgery. It's not even so much the surgery, but all the prep work. Blood tests, coming in hours before the operation even happens...What is Amanda's username? I didn't even know she was on mylot.

Hi Amber! I hated all the preop work too. I am having to wear a bracelet on my wrist showing they took the blood work. They told me to not take it off at all or they will have to restick me in the morning before my procedure. So I have had this little red bracelet on since Thursday morning that says "Shelia McCrary, Helen Keller Hospital". The lady who stuck me said "Yep, this is your hospital jewelry." LOL!! I'm sorry, I thought you knew Amanda is here on MyLot. Her username is ajmccrary1986. I told her that you all are wanting an update tomorrow and that she might have some friend requests so she is going to check and add any requests that she gets. She will be coming home tomorrow afternoon because she will have to pick Stuart up from school so she can bring him to see me so she will come home long enough to check her messages, etc. on MyLot and post the update then. I'll talk to you as soon as I can. Hugs! Shelia

Our prayers are with you for a speedy recovery. Surgery is always a serious thing especially if you are diabetic. Take care and rest easy. Don't try to rush your recovery.

Thanks hon!! My husband is taking off through Thursday to be at home with me so believe me he won't let me rush. He will fuss at me if I try LOL!! He has already asked me this morning if the hospital knows that I will be off for a while from typing LOL!! He knows I am bad to push myself when I don't need to so he will be making sure that I get plenty of rest. Amanda, my daughter, will also. She has already told me also that she will fuss at me too if I try to overdo it. :) I have a very precious family!!
