Well, here we are. It’s about midnight as I’m typing, which means today is the big day!
Today, I was definitely not myself. I wasn’t in a bad mood or anything like that, but I just felt a little off. I got out in the afternoon to run some errands and it all just hit me. For months now, this has been a distant reality, but today it finally set in. I cried a little bit while I was driving and just talked with the Lord about my emotions. It was therapeutic and I would imagine is just the beginning of my emotions surfacing.
As routine as this surgery is for our extremely qualified surgeon, I just couldn’t help but wonder whether today would be my final day with my little man. I know that sounds really morbid, but I am well aware that tragic things can happen during routine surgeries. I’m not as naive as I used to be, and sometimes that really stinks. While the odds are certainly in our favor due to amazing medical advances (thank you, LORD!), I just can’t deny that there is a chance something could go terribly wrong.
As far as logistics go, we will be at the hospital at 6am in the morning and anticipating the surgery to begin at 7:30am. We would certainly appreciate your prayers if you think of it! Please feel free to leave a comment to let us know you are praying, but more so so that I can pray for you in return! I plan to pray through any comments that are left on this blog and/or on Facebook (and anyone else the Lord brings to mind) during Brady’s surgery. Feel free to give specific prayer requests if you wish!
I’ll post an update as soon as possible! If not during the day, I should have time at night when I’m spending the night with Brady!!
