Twas the Night Before

It's here!!! The night before my surgery, and it's strange - although I feel like my nerves should be making me sick, I have an overwhelming sense of calm.  I am exhausted - mentally, emotionally, physically, but I am so ready to get this show on the road.  I had an Upper GI this morning - yuck! - a pre-op class this afternoon, and some blood work drawn.  I am home safe with my parents, and have to be back in Nashville around 5:30am.

Dear Lord: Please protect me from harm.  Please guide my surgeon, Dr. Olsen's, hands tomorrow during this surgery.  I pray there is no unexpected complications, though I know if there is - it is Your will.  Please be with my family and friends during this time, and grant them peace.  I pray that this recovery is speedy and You will supply me the strength I need to get up and get on with life.  I thank you for all you have given me, and for all that you are going to give me.  Forgive me as I continue to fall short.  Amen. 


  1. My prayers are with you and your family also. Hope everything goes well tomorrow.

  2. I love your prayer Erin! It is full of strength! Hope you get some rest tonight. It's all soon to be over!!! YAY!!!!

  3. Praying for you Erin! Thida

  4. Erin,
    I don't know you very well but I work next door in Cashiers. You are a beautiful girl. Thank you for sharing your story. So many of us can relate to the things in your life. I wish you all the best and a speedy recovery. Can't wait to see your smiling face again the PB window. LOL
