Could use some positive thoughts prayer and info [View all]

Tomorrow I will head across our mountain passes to have hip surgery on Tuesday.
I chose a doctor on the other side of the mountains because he was much more approachable than the local surgeon I met with.
So the fact that I am not a good traveler (sometimes have to take xanex just for the trip as the passenger of course I can't even drive on the coast at all. It stresses me out . tells you how much the decision to go that way means. I am fairly young for the surgery (55)
I have done research and know that hip surgery ( I am having anterior) generally goes well. But still I am nervous. Such as what if I have some unknown health thing that would effect the anesthesia?
So much has gone wrong lately I feel like I'm under a black cloud. Such as my youngest son had a stroke, then after not catching multiple colds etc this year even when family and co workers where dropping like fly's. Just when I had to go in three weeks ago and start the tests to ok me for surgery I caught a cold just getting over that and the stomach bug that came in the middle and a few other things that have gone on. It feels like something is saying "Don't do it"
So I could use some positive thoughts, prayers, and for those who have either had the surgery or had loved ones that have is this normal anxiety ( mostly I know people that have had the hip surgery say they wish they had not waited so long) I haven't talked to them about the pre-worry thing.
