Next Wednesday, June 8, is a huge day for our family. Not only is it Asher's surgery, but it is Rio's kindergarten orientation. Jordan and I will divide and conquer - one with Asher and one with Rio (thankfully gramma is coming from out of town to be with Nolan).
Jordan is the better choice to be with Asher. He is not only a nurse, but he is super dad, and over all much more calm than me. He is more than capable of dealing with the surgery and everything surrounding it. I will be able to stay at the hospital until just before surgery, but by the time I am able to return Asher should be in recovery and waiting to go home. Jordan will be the one to go into the OR while he is put under, and waiting for him when he wakes up.
Likewise, I am the better choice to be with Rio. I am as excited and nervous for her to start kindergarten as she is, and don't want to miss out on this big step for her. As sentimental as Jordan is towards his kids, I think I am slightly more excited about this event than he is, as am I more emotional over all about our baby starting school.
Unfortunately, both of us wish we could do both. I guess since my body can't be in two places at one time, I need to settle for my heart being with both of them, regardless of where I am.
What an emotional day it's going to be.
