Just woke up late, without an alarm, and panic seized the moment. As if I just drank a whole cup of coffee and I went from zero to 100 mph all in a few seconds. My mind raced to our daughter, and then Mike called on the phone.
Neurosurgeon called him to tell us our appointment is changed from 11:00 am to 12 Noon. Saves an hour of waiting, so that was nice.
Little one didn't want to leave me. She was crying, as if she knew my mind was thinking of all the things I have to do to prepare for possible surgery. "I don't want to leave you!" Crocodile tears and no insanity. Just plain love. I said a little prayer, "Thank you, God. She loves me again." But this is what I told her: "I'll always be a part of you, and so I'm never going to leave you." With that, her heart seemed to be filled with reassurance, and....off she went to school!
:-). Made my day.
