We gave the children some buddies to help them not be afraid for their surgeries. The Dude named his "wizard" (lizard) Swirly.
My friend came to be with us the whole time. I am so grateful for her emotional support and helping to calm down my little boy.
My mind was reeling with "what ifs" and my not seeing my son again. I was on the edge of panic until they told me he was out of surgery. The nurse apologized to me for not telling me what she was doing. It's easy to forgive when you are sure your child is o.k.
I wonder about those instances when something goes wrong. Is it impossible to forgive... how do people get over that hurdle? I truly couldn't imagine how hard that would be.
I am so grateful that there wasn't any hitches and my family is here at home. Thank heavens for pains meds. I keep saying that, but oh my! When they start to wear off it turns into a horror movie. Lots of whining and yelling and crying.
Only 5 more days to go...
That's what they say!
I'm sticking with that. School on Monday for both kids. I am going to need that time to recoup.
I want to give a big shout out to Mr. Finn right now. Even though he is in a lot of pain, he tries to help out. A Lot! I appreciate all the help he gives me. I know it can't be easy.
