Surgery tomorrow.

Yep. The dreaded words. This one will be #12.

Dr. F is going to go back in and try to flush and clean out the blood clot. If he is successful, he'll put in an internal shunt and I'll be out on Wednesday. If he's not, he'll put in another external shunt and I'm stuck here for God knows how long. (And really, only He does.)

It's not hard to figure out which one I want, huh?

I want to get out of this place. Plain and simple.

I've been overheated and nauseous a lot today. Which sucks.

My hair is disgusting like you wouldn't believe. Which also sucks.

Please pray for:
- my comfort before and after the surgery.
- success for Dr. F in removing the blood clot so I can get an internal shunt
- peace for my mom and I as we deal with whatever the outcome is.

My mom will have to go back to work on Friday, and I'm terrified about being in the hospital alone, so I really need peace about that if I don't get out of here on Wednesday.

Thanks and love to all of you for supporting me.


  1. Hi I've been lurking at your blog for awhile but I wanted to tell you I am praying for you. And I wanted to tell you that my name is Mallory too! There aren't a lot of us ;) I pray you will be able to get out of the hospital, and soon!! From the other Mallory :D

  2. Praying for the best outcome all around!!!

  3. I'm sure it's all over by now - can't wait to hear what happened!

  4. This is the first chance I have had to read any blogs. I am so sorry you are having to go through this. Please keep us updated.
