I'm also scheduled for sinus surgery next Friday. I'm definitely not looking forward to the surgery. I'm used to anesthesia, but that is still probably by least favorite part of surgery. I don't like the feeling of losing control when the anesthesia gets into my body. To be honest, I tend to fight the sleepy feeling as long as possible until I just give up, close my eyes, and "go to sleep". I don't like waking up from anesthesia, either. I wake up disoriented, unsure of what happened during surgery or what the next step is in my recovery. And I despise not thinking clearly, which happens when I'm waking up from surgery. I could continue about all the reasons I don't like surgery, but instead, I'll say I'm extremely thankful for doctors who know what they're doing and who want to do what's best for me. I'm thankful for technology that allows for surgery to be performed relatively safely. I'm thankful that the surgery even exists so that I can keep fighting back against the damage CF does to my body.
It's time to fight infection with all my strength and help from medical technology. CF ain't got nothin' on me! If you think about it, please be praying for my recovery process over the next few weeks. I am SO appreciative of all of your prayers, love, and words of encouragement.
God is good!
