We went in to UVa this morning for Owee’s pre-op appointment. Everything looks great for surgery tomorrow. It was a long day and we are tired!
We decided to come back and spend some extra time with the other 4 kids for a bit this evening and then we are heading back into Charlottesville tonight to spend the night at a hotel just down the street from the hospital. It will be so much easier to get our morning going away from home. I know it will be very hard to leave the comfort and safety of my home tomorrow morning, so leaving tonight seems like the best way. We also get to spend some time alone with Owee tonight and only have a 1 minute drive to get to UVa in the morning.
We also had to come back because I avoided packing until the last minute.
I know this has to be done. I know it is the right thing to do. I wish I didn’t have to. We have known this was coming for years, and had the date set for months. I just can’t believe it is finally here.
I have a million things running through my mind right now. When it comes down to it, you don’t really want to be in my mind, and I wouldn’t put anyone through that. So the only thing left to do now is to ask for prayers.
Please keep Owee in your thoughts and prayers tomorrow morning. We were originally asked to bring him in at 6am, his surgeon had a meeting come up at the last minute so we will be walking through the doors tomorrow morning at 8am with surgery scheduled to start around 10-10:30. If you can send him some prayers around then, we would be so grateful. Thanks so much!
