Update #6: August 27, 2016 (Ready, Set…Surgery!)
After a long week of juggling pre-Op appointments, blood-draws, paper-work and finishing the last week of clients at the salon, I’m home resting and preparing for the big day, Monday, August 29th. Surgery starts at 11:00am and is expected to go 3.5 hours. I’ve been told I will most likely be in the hospital 3-5 days, if all goes well.
I’m not sure how I’ll feel immediately after the surgery, so I’ll probably ask my husband, Aaron to log in and give everyone a quick update on Monday evening. I know that many of you are praying and I can’t even tell you how much that means to me. It brings me a lot of comfort and peace knowing that your prayers are being lifted up to the mighty Physician in Heaven on my behalf. I am hopeful and fully confident that God is with me. He has been faithful to hold me close and fill me with a peace, that surpasses all understanding and a joy unspeakable, in such a time as this. I have no words to describe His presence, nor do I have words to appropriately express my gratitude for the love and support that surrounds me, in all of you. Thank you!
Note to my clients: Again, thank you for your loving support during this time. Most of you already know that my good friend and hairdresser, Rebeca (at Akua), will be available to handle your appointments for the next 6-8 weeks. I’ve provided her with access to all my products, color, formulas and notes. She has graciously offered to give back a percentage of her earnings, from you, towards my salon rent while I’m out. I wanted you all to know her sweet and generous heart and how much she wants to help. She is a gift. I hope you all feel comfortable with her over the next couple months. She can be reached at 760-805-5910. I will miss you, but I will be back soon!
This is my prayer…May the God of ALL hope be glorified in me and may you come to know HIM personally.
Hugs and gratitude,
