Elizabeth was a rockstar today! We left the house at 4:40 am, and she was all smiles. Only 4 hours later, we were back home, and the little sleeping beauty has been sound asleep ever since. The procedure went perfectly, and minimal tears were shed. Thank you, Lord! Matt stayed at home with the other two (because there was nowayinheck we were going to wake them up at 4:15 as well), so I didn’t exactly love the anxiety-ridden moments alone in the waiting room of the hospital while Elizabeth was in the OR. Thankfully, I brought along my current reading material which has been excellent… and was clearly quite timely for my issues-ridden self.
The author is on staff at my parents’ church in Richmond, and I’m totally tracking with her. Matt read the blurb on the back cover and remarked, “Yep. That looks like a book that’s perfect for you.” Thaaaanks, babe.
I’m guessing I should go check on the slumbering little Elizabeth upstairs. Again. Because Mary Grace and Carson are at preschool today, I haven’t really known what to do with myself, so I find myself wandering in and out of Elizabeth’s room just staring at her sweet face. That and baking enough pumpkin muffins and honey wheat bread to feed a small army. Because, well, I guess I’ve got issues.
