Grant me patience Lord.................but hurry

Just a little old statement people have been saying for decades but right now it holds a special meaning........... that's my prayer. The surgery went very well but post op they discovered I had a hairline fx in my femur're going to love this........because my bones are small and the retracters were too much for them so they went crack!!!!!! So because of that I have
no weight bearing on the leg for 6 weeks up to 3 months,, depending on how it heals... My vote is for 2 weeks but nobody ask me!!!!!!!!!!!! You can't imagine how often you use the leg and the little things you don't think of until you go to do them and can' I have helpers with me most of the time,, my nurse and her family have been there since the start with whatever I need and TQ has been an angel of mercy ,, so has her family, I don't know what I'd do without them, but I still would rather do it myself!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! there's that control thing God is making sure gets broken............because I have no control now!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! We're down one week ???? to go ,, my prayer and my prayer request is that God gives me the patience to endure this (I know He will)
and the self control to be sweet to those around me --- for their sakes!!!!!!!!!!!! :-)
I appreciate all the prayers, cards, notes, phone calls and visits -- it's a diversion and a ray of sunshine in my day so thank you very much!!!! Pastor thanks for taking the time to shop down here so often lately ---I know I originally said don't bother but I'm very glad you have and I loved the visit with the all the babies,,big and small that was a great day!!!!!!!!!!!!!

So God is teaching me patience and letting go- so please pray I get through this (and all the people around me) and still have friends after it's over.... :-) !!!!

Well we're in the home stretch............4 days and counting ---till surgery. I am so thankful I had a day off this week to get things organized.........between getting things in the house ready and getting everything at work caught up or almost caught up it's been alittle frantic to say the least. I still have a list of things to get and errands to do before Tuesday but the lists are getting smaller........thank goodness,, for awhile for every one I crossed off I was adding 3 or 4 more!!!!
It will get there -- today's project is cleaning (that's why I'm on the computer :-) ) Trying to get as many of the dust dinosaurs ( they're way to big to be bunnies !!!!) as I can and make sure the
living room is set up efficiently,,,still strange to see the twin bed in there -- oh well it's just for
a few weeks. Tomorrow after church will be laundry,, it will be the last time for awhile I'll be able to do that. And then there's Monday and all the things to do there and things to tell Wanda so she won't have a harder time than she will. All the little things you don't think of while you're doing them but have to think about when you have to write them down for someone,,
oh well Wanda trained me so I think she'll remember as she get's going. Monday night will be
evening service and bible study,, A nice way to calm down before Tuesday -- of course Tuesday
for the most part I'll be asleep -- so that's not so bad is it!!!!!!!!!! :-)
It will all come together as it's suppose to and then my fun will really start when I have to be
good and follow directions and have to have people help me!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Prayers Prayers Prayers -- for the people that help me --- I'm not a good patient!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Not yet anyway.
