Happy Valentime's Day!! That's what my kids use to say.  I still say it that way.

Today is a day that stands for  LOVE.  I LOVE you all!

Proverbs 3:3 says, "Let LOVE and faithfulness never leave you; bind them around your neck, write them on the tablet of your HEART. "

LOVE is not just a word that means I like you very much.  LOVE is a verb, an action.  You have given me so much LOVE throughout my journey.  You have prayed, you have sent notes, emails, messages, meals, taken my kids, changed my bandages, picked me up.  You have done so many "things" for me.  That is LOVE!!!  Thank you!!

It's time for my next surgery.  I will be having an Oophorectomy (having my ovaries and tubes removed) on Wednesday, February 16th.  The procedure is considered major surgery, mostly because I will be under general anesthesia.  My Gynecological Oncologist, Dr. Lu is planning on going in laparoscopically to remove my ovaries and fallopian tubes.

I don't have a specific time for the surgery yet, I only know that it's taking place on Wednesday.  Tomorrow I have all my pre-op appointments and will find out late tomorrow afternoon the time of the surgery.  I do know that I will spend Wednesday night in the hospital.

Having an Oophorectomy will put me into immediate menopause.  We have all heard the symptoms of menopause and some of you have already experienced those moments.  Watch out for Moni!!! ;)

So once again I ask for your LOVE!  Please pray for Dr. Lu and her medical team that will be working on me.  Please pray for my kiddos - they are concerned about me having surgery.  Pray for Jim, he will be waiting  for me while I have surgery.  Pray for me.  Please pray that I can handle the menopause symptoms with grace.

Thank you for your LOVE!

Show someone who's not expecting it some LOVE.

LOVE and Blessings from the top of my HEART,
