My Heart In A Nutshell

ETA:  Parker checks in for surgery at 6:00 a.m.  He’s scheduled to be in surgery at 7:30.  He’s first on the list!

I’m waiting for the phone call from Primary Children’s that will let us know when Parker’s surgery will be tomorrow.

My nerves are a bit frayed today.  But that’s pretty standard for the day before surgery.

I have so much to do, but so little desire to actually do it.

The Overwhelming is casting a very long shadow right now.

I’d much rather curl up into a ball and sleep through the next several days while dreaming of waking up to the news that all is well.

Instead I’ll gird up my courage and get on with it.

I know that with each step the momentum will build, and I’ll regain my stride.

Janice, my sweet friend from 5 Minutes for Mom, asked me to write an update on Parker.

It  reveals the desires of my heart.

In a nutshell.
