I Don't Like Pain

I'm heading to the doctor's office in about an hour for minor surgery.

I'd appreciate your prayers. I don't know why I feel so nervous about this. I asked my MD father-in-law if the procedure would hurt and he looked at me like I was crazy.

"You've given birth four times and you're worried about THIS?"

I just don't do well with annoying pain. You know, pain that throbs or stings and you never know when it's going to go away.

In childbirth I got something nice at the end. A baby.

With this procedure, all I'll get is a scar.

Yep, prayers appreciated.


  1. I sort of freak out over dental appointments. People think I'm nuts when they find out that I've had three home births, but the mere thought of a filling reduces me to a basket case. I'm praying for you!

  2. Try not to worry, Amy. You're in my thoughts and prayers.

  3. Prayers on the way fro you, I feel exactly the same about pain when you don't know how long it's for.
    And i got epidurals after 5contractions on each of my 3 kids, couldn't hack "natural" at all!
    Good luck.

  4. Best of luck and lots of prayers!

    And congratulations on winning the pitch contest over at Sharon's blog! I was so excited for you. :D

  5. Amy, thoughts and prayers are with you. The procedure is probably over by now, and I'm sure it went well. Good luck with the recovery.

    And I just say Janet's comment! Congratulations! That's wonderful! (Although I'm not at all surprised... :) )

  6. Thanks, everyone! I'm home now. It was painless (thanks to the anesthetic), but I was still a little shaky afterwards. I'm worried about the pain after the anasthetic wears off, so keep praying for me if you think of it. :) And I need to get used to not turning my head for the next few days. Driving home was interesting. lol!

    Thanks again!

  7. take it easy...let yourself heal (easier said than done for a mom with little ones, I know). glad the procedure went well.

  8. I'll definitely pray! I've had a couple major surgeries...and the best thing to remember is that the pain really only lasts a little while--the healing is always faster than you think.
    Take care of yourself! And let someone make you cookies when you come home. :)

  9. I hope everything went well today and that you are pain free and resting. Praying for a speedy recovery, quick healing, and that the surgery was successful.


  10. I'm glad you made it through the procedure okay. I'm a big chicken when it comes to pain. Doctors preferr me sedated.

  11. I'm a big chicken when it comes to doctors. I'm glad it went well.

  12. Thinking of you, Amy! Praying for NO pain. : )
