Tomorrow is the big day - 11:15 AM.  It's when Dave and I get to sit down and talk with my Surgeon about what's going to happen to me. I wish it were here right now.  It's hard waiting to find out how I should plan the rest of my days, weeks, months, etc.  

Even with all of the planned outdoor adventures on my online Calendars and my 9 Garden properties that we care for daily and are just now starting to harvest the crops, I can stop, change directions and do whatever is necessary to take care of this cancer in my body. I will submit to whatever my future holds and not fight it.  I will go with the flow and I will be happy.  I know I am loved and I know that I will end up in a much better place than I can imagine.  I do know that much. I know what it feels like to be stubborn and fight against things, things I know I should do, but that I don't want to do because it's hard.  It's not really a good feeling to be selfish.  It's not what I want for myself.

I know what happens when you are willing to do hard things - I'll tell you the story more in detail later, about how Trish wouldn't let me turn around on Mt. Timpanogos, JUST minutes before we arrived at this spot at Emerald Lake on Mt. Timpanogos.  It was definitely getting hard and I told her it was time for me to turn around and head back down the mountain, but she wouldn't let me do that.  Within just 20 or so more minutes we were in the most beautiful place and all the hard work and effort paid off a LOT more than I can describe!  I will always thank her for not taking NO for an answer and staying with me for the last section of the hike, which by the way was not that hard, once I let go of the doubts in my mind.  Fear and doubt really try to mess with you often but you just can't make friends with these 2 intruding menaces.
