I woke up this morning, knowing this would be a fateful day. The full moon. Mars conjunct Saturn, square Uranus. Jupiter and Pluto in Capricorn, conjunct my ascendant. SPINE SURGERY. I just didn’t know what to expect.
A few weeks ago, I was telling people I felt like the patients on 600-pound life. They all say they need to be “approved for surgery” or they’re going to die. It’s become an imperative. I’d be going down due to the pain or the pain treatment or both! Unless they fix me?
I woke up this morning, feeling scared but exhilarated, ahead of an appointment with my surgeon who would have all test result and hopefully, a plan. I felt it would go well but tried to check myself. I know someone with an “inoperable” back and I have already been turned away by one neurosurgeon (back) and one orthopedic surgeon (neck). But I really felt this was the man. If not him, then no one. And I felt good!
I felt good enough to post in the forum to say I felt good and I have to tell you, the news is not just good, it’s good beyond my wildest dreams.
I will be having back surgery in June, penciled in, contingent on Covid-19. But here’s the thing: he’s going to go in through my SIDE. This as opposed to cutting me in front and having to move organs aside. Tell me you would not be leaping for joy.
Yes, the surgery will be minimally invasive. There will be more than one, but it will be done in stages, over time. It’s like a four-day hospital stay. I will have to travel to have the surgery. But there will be no poles sticking out and whatnot. Can’t drive for a month which is infinitely better than three or four or six months, I thought might be the case.
I think this is a story of hope and perseverance. Sometimes it’s better to be denied and delayed. You find out, eventually, that the universe (God) was conspiring in your best interest. I have the BEST surgeon and sometimes it just takes time for two people to line up,
This goes for all relationships and not just mine but yours as well.
