As time gets closer the more nervous we get…. BUT….
We can’t show how scared we are…. the little guy will notice.
We keep a smile on at all times….. for the little guy.
So as times gets closer to Christmas…. we get ready for the big day! No not the day everyone else is getting ready for, but the transplant day.
Everyone discusses Christmas ….. we can’t.
Everyone is worried about finding the right present…. we aren’t.
Everyone is excited…. we are but the excitement is filled with anxiety.
I don’t want to hear that you can’t find the right present for your children. The “perfect” toy is not available.
I don’t want to hear that you have amazing plans during your break….is anyone paying attention to us.
Sometimes it feels like we are in this alone. Just the 3 of us…..
Maybe if some would take time to think about others, it would help.
So we wait, and listen to everyone talk about their “perfect” holiday plans. We smile and wait….
And as we wait…. we learn that the surgeons are going to be on vacation in January…. the hospital is changing the surgery date —- it is in 2 weeks. W H A T !!!
New date: December 18th
Anxiety hits hard….. who cares about Christmas – His getting a kidney!
PKD you can’t ruin our Christmas…. Jackie will make sure of that!
Ready or not here is comes!
