Surprisingly, I heard today about Asher's first surgery - June 8. Not only was I shocked at how quickly I heard, but more shocked at how soon the surgery is.
I am relieved and thankful it is only a few weeks away and therefore my thoughts can only torment me for a short time.
I am saddened by the date - it is the same day as Rio's kindergarten orientation. Of course, unless there is some sort of hospital drama, one of us will stay with Asher and the other will go with Rio. It breaks my heart a little bit that whoever takes her (probably me as I am the most excited) will not have their thoughts fully present with her on this special day, and instead have them with Asher in surgery.
The fear has set in. Now that there is a date, this is real.
Tomorrow is my surgical consult. I hope we hear back from them with a date just as quickly (as if, considering it took 7 weeks just to get my consult!).
