Mommy & Daddy went on a ski trip with friends over the New Year's weekend and my fear of all fears came true. Getting hurt and being unable to care for you, which these days is my one, my only, and my most important job.
Luckily, you have the most amazing grandparents who have stepped up in so many ways to make sure that life marches on - and it absolutely has. You are enjoying all of the extra attention and you are days away from starting to crawl! You even seem somewhat amused by my current handicap state.
I know this is but a blip in the story of our lives and that you will never remember a thing about these very difficult days, but I still feel awful about it. All we can do is pray that the surgery tomorrow goes well and that I continue to heal as quickly as possible. It's just that being faced with serious things like surgery can make your mind wander to the darkest of places and the worst of scenarios. I do have faith though, that God will carry us through this and I'll be back at home with you by the end of the day.
Tonight, you so lovingly indulged me with the exact medicine that I needed - extra cuddle time, laying quietly and peacefully beside me, and even falling asleep in my arms. My sweet angel. In case there is ever a doubt in your mind, please know that you are my sun, my moon, and all of my stars. I love you so, dear girl and I promise to heal as fast as I can so that our lives can get back to normal.
Love you too, Mase - thanks for being my rock throughout it all. XOXOXO
