Update from Rochester

Courtyard of Gonda Building at Mayo Clinic, Rochester MN

We slipped and slid into Rochester on icy roads last night.
Temperatures are frigid!
We are now very good at winding our way through subways and skywalks, without ever setting foot outside.
Piles of snow are everywhere.  The photograph above, taken in a fairly well protected area, does not begin to depict the abundance of  frozen white stuff!

I flew through my pre-op labs and tests.
Surgery is scheduled for 10 am tomorrow.  The operation will take three to four hours.  Four muscles on each eye will be surgically repositioned, in hopes of lessening my current double vision.  Additional adjustments to the muscles will be made over the next few days, to obtain optimum success with this surgery.

I have great faith in my surgeon and his team, but realize this is truly in the hands of someone even greater.
In the meantime, I am in a winter wonderland during the season of  magic, hope and joy!

Your prayers and messages have touched my heart.
I am truly blessed, and thank each of you.
I will see you here again, soon!

I keep trying to think of a new way to say we will be praying. Not smart enough. I will just have to say it straightforward again. You are loved and count me among the legions who will be storming heaven tomorrow. Sleep well so you can get well sooner.

Jan,
Prayers for positive results today! Just know that every time this gal with arthritic aches and pains even thinks about complaining, I think..."Stop complaining, think of Jan!" and there goes another prayer...lots and lots!

Like Martha, I cannot think of other words than I am praying for you. Jeannie does say it well though. Hugs to you and Tom as I am sure he needs them.

Lois said...

So glad to hear that you arrived safely. I have been thinking about you. You and your doctors will definitely be in my prayers! May God hold you safely in the palm of his hand!

Kathy B. said...

You don't know me, but I have been following your updates & keeping you and your husband in my prayers also. Please know that there are many others just like me who are also holding you up in prayer, as I hope you feel them. Your strength & grace during this uncertain time are such a testimony to your own faith, & I wish you God's peace and (hopefully!) full healing as you go the rest of the way. If that is not to be, I can't wait to see what great talent God will bless you with next!
