after pre-op, a relaxing evening stroll, enjoying the Texas sunset
We've been informed of every possible scenario and outcome, perhaps, and signed more consent forms than I could have imagined possible. We're praying for less pain and more leg stability and functioning. If that's the eventual outcome, then the surgery will be a success.
While waiting for Monday. . . .
We're staying with one of my sweet, gracious sisters while waiting for THE SURGERY. Brendan is watching lots of football, resting his leg. I got to visit one of my old thrift store haunts. . . .
this is where it all began.
HEAVEN. We don't have thrift stores like this out in west Texas. Not. even. close. Of course we found a few monstrosities, like this catty gem. . . .
BRRRREEOOW MEOW. so ugly, it makes me smile.
But this. . . .
. . . this makes the digging SO worth it. Three yards of new, pristine Amy Butler Lotus Morning Glory print, plus a couple of yards of new fleece (not shown,) bundled together for a paltry FOUR BUCKS. Super-score!
And then there's this. . . .
many thanks to my other amazing sister,
for sending me updates and reminders like this!
This jumble of noise and confusion and smiles and squeals melts my heart, and makes this separation more bearable.
Not easy, but bearable. And hopefully, worth it.
Talk to you soon.
