    I am just so nervous. There are only 3 ways this surgery can go. Good, bad, dead. Hans and I have talked about it and we know that this surgery is our only hope and we are so greedy for more time together. But if they open me up and then decide they cant do anything, we know that it is a death sentence. We had this conversation if it would be better for me to die on the table or wake up knowing that they couldnt do anything and have a longer, slower, more painful death. We agreed that although that isnt so exciting an offer, it was much better than dying on the table. When I said we are greedy for more time, I mean that. Any time together is good at this point.

    Anyway, it is still 3 weeks away. I havent been able to see my pyschologist because she has been very sick this past month. So we are planning for the worst, praying for the best and trying to live life to the fullest until then. It is all very tiring and I am getting the worst stress headaches that leave me feeling sick to my stomach and stuck in bed in the dark. Wah, wah wah I will stop whining now.

    Thanks again for all of your kind words and encouragement.

    Hi Kris,

    I am keeping my fingers crossed for you for Thursday.

    March 22 is a good day. That is my mums birthday and not only that, my little cousin is due to give birth to her first child on the 22nd so I hope that this will also be a great day for you.

    Tons and tons of positive thoughts coming over the north sea heading your way.

    Best wishes and lots of hugs,

    Gavin

    Oh Kris….the old waiting game. I don’t believe that another four weeks (from the original proposed date) will make too much of a difference in regards to the cancer. The emotional burden however, is something I much relate to. Kris, you have so many wellwishers loaded with positive energy coming your way, it could move a mountain.
    Namaste, as Peter would say.
    Hugs coming your way,
    Marion

    March 22 (or 23). Final decision will be on Thursday. I am REALLY annoyed that it has taken almost 2 months to get everyones schedule clear and the date set. It is such an emotional burden to know that this is a very high risk surgery, it gets riskier the longer they wait and there is nothing I can do about it. Sometimes I wonder how strong one has to be.
