Thanks for all the support and prayers, everyone. The surgery went very well and I’m recovering smoothly. That was the craziest thing I’ve ever been through, physically and emotionally, getting surgery just 10 days before our wedding. But with each day that passes, I feel significantly better! And I’m just so grateful we caught the problem when we did and got it taken care of. It feels great to be able to move forward into our wedding without having to worry about my spleen rupturing anymore! This has definitely been a huge blessing.
This is going to seem totally out of the blue to most of you, but I’m going into surgery tomorrow to have my spleen removed. I found out about four months ago that I have a cyst on my spleen and unfortunately it has continued to grow over time. It wasn’t causing me any problems before, but about a week ago it started causing me pretty consistent pain, so my doctor decided it needs to come out now. (Which is probably good, since it’s roughly the width of A TENNIS BALL now.) Luckily, it’s a relatively simple laparoscopic procedure, and the expected recovery time is no more than a week. (So don’t worry, the wedding is still on!) But I sure would appreciate any extra prayers anyone would like to throw my way in the meantime. Thanks guys!
