“Peace I leave with you; My peace I give to you; not as the world gives, do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, nor let it be fearful.”Jesus the Carpenter
It has been slow. The last major event that occurred was the Cath Lab, and the doctors told us that they got what they were looking to get. John Lee has since recovered. It is fun to see him covered. He gets mad when he is uncomfortable, mainly due to the breathing tube. He has a fight in him.
As we know, he is going to have surgery next week. I cannot bare to think of it. I have such a weak stomach. I talk about it but it is hardly on my mind. I look at his tiny body and it is hard to imagine.
Time and time again we hear the saying ‘things have to get worse before they get better.’ The one thing I keep hearing is that babies get very sick after surgery. This is coming. This week is it. I am glad that we are not alone in this. We have people alongside us, lending their shoulders and more along the way. Thank you! Amy will tackle the details about the surgery in a few days. She spoke with attending doctor today and go clarity about what is going to happen.
Since it is slow it has been good to have Loren and Sue around. They keep us sane. We are going to miss having them around when they leave on Monday. After they leave we are going to have other friends visit with us next. We will talk more about them when they are here. We are very excited.
Henry has also been a treat. His favorite word currently is ‘NO.’ Sometimes he says it before you finish telling him what is happening. Like, “Henry do you…,” “No!” “…want some Ice cream?” “Ummm…yeah!” Bad habits die hard. #thatparentinglife.
We drove south to Monterrey Bay yesterday. They bay area is stunning. It was a good break.
Today Henry got to ride on a train for the first time with the two favorite men in his life. We started in Palo Alto. I thought we were going all the way until Loren asked, “how far are we going?” At which I replied, “Burlingame.” It was both our first times in Burlingame on the side of the country. Vastly different from the one Loren knows.
