i have to be at the hospital at 6:00am tomorrow for my procedure. it's called a catheter ablation and you can read about it here or here. I will be sedated (thankfully) and i should be home tomorrow night. however, i have no idea when the doc will let me begin running again. i am praying the longest he will say is 10 days, but that it will be less than that. i really wanted to get one last run in today, but i have been feeling like i might be coming down with something, so dr. kyle (aka, my husband) told me i needed to take it easy and try to rest. so, i listened...reluctantly, because it was just so nice outside today! i haven't run outside in 2 weeks, and i really miss it!
so, i will be resting for the next few days in the hopes of a quick recovery. i really want to get back out there as quickly as possible.
a friend asked me if i was nervous. at first, i thought...no, what's there to be nervous about? but as it gets closer, i am beginning to feel the butterflies fluttering. i know it will be fine, but i guess it's natural to have some nerves before something like this. after all, they are going to be messing with my heart!. it's kind of an important part of me. :)
if you are the praying type, please pray for the following:
~ that i am not sick...i really do not want to have to reschedule this procedure again.
~ that the procedure goes well and they are able to fix the problem.
~ that my recovery is quick.
~ that my substitute does not have any problems while i am gone.
~ that my youngest gets over this sickness she has had all weekend (101+ fever and major congestion).
thanks all and God bless!
