Where do you go?

The whole anesthesia idea is so strange to me. When you are asleep you sort of know you are sleeping - you have dreams and are aware of loud noises etc. You are aware you are in your body. When you go under anesthesia you go to sleep and then 2 seconds later you wake up. That time in between is just gone. So I wonder - where do you go? Where are you hanging out while your body is undergoing such trauma? Such a mystery - but I am glad that we have it. I am glad I don't have to be aware of those long hours of meticulous slicing and dicing and mending. I am glad I get to wake up with the band-aid already on.

Say a prayer for my sweet husband on Monday as he has to wait and wait and wait..... Pray that he has peace in knowing that we are all in God's hands. That He is guiding my fabulous doctor's hands. Pray that the time will pass quickly and without much anxiety. Pray for peace.

I'll be praying for all of you. John definitely has the tough job on Monday. Waiting is torture. I'll be praying it passes quickly and you wake up comfortable and relieved.
