Message:  Her surgery is set for June 28th. (the day Ryan and I fly out, of course!) They still haven't told her what time yet.

I'll be a nervous wreck all that day, guaranteed. I just have to remember to excersise faith on this one, and trust in something stronger than my own two hands to keep her safe.

Leah has taken two weeks off to be with her. We'll be back in town on the fifth, and should be moved in next door to her shortly after that. I'll be around plenty!! *grin*

She can't drive for the entire summer, so I'm sure we'll be carting her around to appointments and away from the house for some open space...

Please do keep her in your prayers. She finds it a little twisted that she's SO excited about major surgery. However, she's been in more pain that she'll even admit, and it's time for her to have her life on her feet (and on a horse) back again. She's dealt with it loooooong enough.

When the surgeon saw her for the first time, he asked her (as they were looking at her x-rays) where her wheelchair was. He could not believe his ears when she told him she didn't use a wheelchair or walker. I think he's medically stunned still about how she's walking at this point.

I'm excited for her!!

P.S. I'm glad you didn't call me, LL. That last collect call cost me my paycheck! haha
