Here I Go Again

Just for the record those are my husbands toes and my legs aren't that hairy!

Over the past several years it feels as though my body has been conspiring against me and that no sooner do I get one issue sorted out than another appears.  Tomorrow I will be going in for my fifth surgery in the last four years . . .  this time to remove a lose bone fragment and bone spur from my foot.
I've mentioned it before but hospitals freak me out as do needles in veins (IV's are a particularly stressful experience).  I don't know if this fear has always been there, whether it was the result of a particular experience or simply got worse as I got older.  I have to remind myself to get out of my head, to breathe, to take each minute at a time and to stop over thinking things but it's hard.

I'm going to be laid up for a while but I've got plenty of books, movies and of course my laptop at the ready.


  1. Will be thinking of you! Keep taking those deep breaths.

  2. Good luck.
    Wishing you a speedy recovery, Kathryn.

  3. Breathe deeply and slowly and think happy things ... it will be over soonly :-)
