I've been a nervous wreck, but somehow, I've gotten to this day,
the day before his surgery.
We all feel the same way,
We love him the way he is, the way God gave him to us, the way God made him.
In our eyes.
The kiddos all keep saying at different times how worried they are about him,
it's been a stressful week on all of us to say the least.
I tell them of the hundreds of people praying,
blog people, friends, family, neighbors, people from church,
prayer groups here and prayer groups of friends.
He is probably the most blessed little boy in the world and all will be fine.
They, and I have a sense of peace
with this thought.
Our priest came by yesterday and blessed Simeon
We called the Poor Clare Nuns and they are praying
His surgery is at 7:30 am Friday
We need to be there at 6 am,
he needs to have his last bottle by 3:30 am
The surgery is between 3-4 hours long.
He will be in overnight for sure, and
will come home when he can eat (by bottle)
They don't allow cell phones in the hospital
I won't have time to post til I get home
So you will be in the dark til then.
We are packing (Rosie is going to stay overnight with me in the hospital)
We are taking lots and lots of pictures of Simeon
We are taking lots of videos of him the way he is now
We are already missing his sweet little face, that we all love so much.
We are kissing his sweet little lips as they are now.
It's a sadness I can't describe,
loving him the way he is now and not knowing what
he'll look like tomorrow.
And at the same time, we all know everything will be fine and he'll be beautiful.
Thank you for all your prayers and novenas and rosaries and Masses,
phone calls, letters, gifts and whatever I'm forgetting!
Our Lady of Lourdes, Pray for us.
