Hey, my friends. Hope your Friday is off to a beautiful start. I’m writing to you from a hospital bed this morning. Wednesday night the gallstones I’ve known I had for years decided to make themselves known in a cranky way.
After a week of having hit and miss stomach challenges, but trying to work through it, I experienced several hours of sone of the worst pain in my life. Then the vomiting began and we were off to the emergency room.
After some analysis, they have determined that the stones are blocking bile ducts and causing the pain. This in turn puts the liver and pancreas under stress. The plan of action is to remove those stones and then the gallbladder in a pair of procedures over the next few days. So, I’ll be here a while.
For me, it’s moments like this when I can really put my positive thinking to work. It’s easy to think positively when things are going well, but it’s when we’re faced with difficulty is when it matters.
I have a few affirmations for you that I’ve been using in recent days. I hope they resonate with you and help you through some challenging moments.
wherever you are on your journey today, know that you are awesome!
