Journal entry by Abigail Johnston —
Hysterectomy is at 10 am today and we have to be at the hospital by 7. Bloodwork on Friday showed low white blood cells, so I had a shot on Friday and Saturday to boost those. They’ll check again this morning to make sure that the surgery can go forward. The weekend was pretty miserable from the bone pain associated with the the shots (stimulating my marrow to create more white blood cells is painful!!) and the bowel prep (more than a weeks worth of laxatives).
Thank you to everyone who has checked in on me and who will be praying this morning!!
