Change of Plans Again

We're feeling sad today.  Darryl's surgery has been officially bumped until after Christmas/New Years.   Right now he's scheduled for surgery on Jan. 7.   Jan. 7 is my last chemo day, so we're considering asking to have it bumped back a few weeks (my treatments end mid-January).  We had everything in place for next week, and now it feels like everything is unravelling and out of control again.   It's so hard to have our plans changed when we've had to work so hard to accept them.

My day was a lot harder than yesterday.  I was extremely tired:  came off steroids, emotionally draining,  and just overall not feeling great.  I spent a lot of hours in bed today.

So we are glad that it's time to go to bed.  We look forward to waking up to a new day tomorrow!  "Because of the Lord's great love we are not consumed, for his compassions never fails.  They are new every morning."  Lamentations 3:22-23


  1. My husband's surgery was booked in 10 days. Remembering how relieved we felt. Then I thought and prayed for the person we bumped. God's timing is perfect. Psalm 27:14 Wait patiently for The Lord. Be brave and courageous. We know exactly how you feel and are praying.

  2. Hi Mel. I'm thinking of you and praying...
    Hugs to all of you. Trust the Lord with all your heart. Love U

  3. Thinking of you Mel as you embark on this unplanned life journey. Your strength will overcome all obstacles.

  4. Be still and know that I am God... may you continue to claim His faithfulness through every moment. Praying for your family.

  5. Mel...we were with Steve & Susan the other night and they shared your journey with us. Wow. You, Darryl and the girls are in our thoughts. AND, this is the verse that I claim DAILY, "from the end of the earth I will cry unto thee when my heart is overwhelmed; lead me to the Rock that is higher than I" Psalm 61:2
