Still hanging in. Having lots of moments of okay and then tears.
I wanted to share something my youngest granddaughter, Fynn said to me last evening.
We were walking to my car to get some left over sparklers to light before I went back home, and out of the blue, she asks me if I am scared to have surgery. This is the first she has mentioned anything and she is only 8. So, stunned as I was, I said to her, "well maybe a little" I didn't want her to be frightened. She replied, "Nana, you like flowers don't you. So don't be scared we will bring lots of flowers and balloons to your hospital room. That will make you feel better and not be so scared."
For me, this was a wow moment. The love and sweetness from a young child. And the wise maturity that I never expected, all at the same time.
It's amazing the strength I am finding, in the most unexpected places...
Just wanted to share that with you all. I hope everyone is having a great Monday and feeling as well as can be.
I am keeping you all close in my heart
