Well, guess the fun isn't quite over yet. I'm going to have exploratory surgery on Monday to get this pain figured out once and for all! It's becoming more frequent and more painful and I went to another doctor for a second opinion and she thought the best thing to do was to go in and check it out. Thankfully they can do it laparoscopically, so I won't have a big gash across my abdomen or anything, and full recovery is only 2 weeks! I'm really praying that they'll be able to figure it out and that it won't be anything too bad.

I went in to have my pre-surgery labs done and had a missionary experience there. There was one lady drawing my blood and one lady putting my information into the computer. She asked me if I had a religious preference and I said that I was LDS, and she was like " A Mormon???". So then both the ladies were suddenly sitting down in their chairs asking me questions about what we believe and what makes us different from all the other religions. And the usual Polygamy thing (which they were very happy that I cleared up for them!) So, I pretty much gave the first discussion while they were taking my blood....it was a good distraction from that needle, though! I hope I was able to tell them what they needed to know and maybe even planted the seed. Anyway, it was a nice experience.

And I thought only Grandpa would be able to give the 1st discussion to the people taking his blood at the hospital! -LOL
We'll be praying for you & your doctors. There is nothing worse than uncertainty.
