So we made the call to the hospital and cancelled Jaden's surgery for Friday. It was so hard but we knew he just wasn't going to be rid of his cold. It is just hard as we are going through all of the emotions of actually doing the surgery but also all of the planning for kids, work, school, activities, dogs etc... The planning is hard on us and then it keeps changing. I have to remind myself that this gives us that many more days to load oils on Jaden and get him even stronger for the surgery.
Ms. Leslie from our school, SCCS, reminded me "In God's time it will happen." This is true and I know this. I just sometimes try to think I can make the plans because it is best for our schedule, for our lives. It was a nice reminder thought that God is in charge and we need to listen to Him.
So Sal and I will look at the dates the hospital gave us and try to decide which date would be best for all of us. Ethan and I prayed about it on the way to gymnastics tonight that God would help us make a wise decision on the best time to do the surgery. Then Ethan said, "mom you said a very nice prayer." It was so sweet and touching that he felt compelled enough to tell me that.
So I will let you all know what the next surgery date will be.
