Don’t get me wrong, sharing my plight is some sort of catharsis for me. It makes the pain easier to bear. Now, I believe that you will really know your true friends when you are at your lowest. Some may turn their backs on you, some may empathize but the people who truly care won’t hesitate to say a few words of comfort and assure you of their prayers that you badly need. And as I’ve always said, I rather have a few friends who are sincerely praying for my health than have a hundred who would just tolerate what is happening in my life. It hurts sometimes that those you expect most to understand would not even say a word.
Finally, I am scheduled to undergo that much needed surgery come Tuesday morning. After almost a month of going back several times to my doctors and being cleared of all the pre-op requirements, after all the anguish of knowing that I am not hundred percent fit, I really hope I could overcome it all. Only God is the greatest healer and the greatest doctor but I am also praying for my oncologist, my cardiologist and all the people who would take charge of my surgery. Lord, guide them all.
