**Tomorrow is Amon’s big day. We head out bright and early…well technically it will still be pitch dark. His surgery starts at 8am. Will you please pray for our sweet, sweet boy? Thank you!
**I’m positive God allowed me to read in 2 Corinthians just a few days ago because He absolutely knew my heart needed it.
**I tend to not be very emotional, but ever since Mom died, well it’s been a lost cause keeping my emotions under wraps. Needless to say I’ve cried multiple times today already. It’s 10am.
**I need to pull out our “Waiting for you” sign for waiting room pictures tomorrow. We are pretty darn good at this waiting thing now. I think it’s called refinement.
**My nerves are officially off the charts too…verging on the puke phase. Puking in the waiting room is really not cool.
**I wonder how many craft projects I can complete in 8-10 hours with no children sitting in a waiting room.
**I wonder how many calories I can emotionally eat in 8-10 hours too.
**You can’t eat in the waiting room at the hospital…they have a separate area to eat in. That bummed me out for some reason. I love the memories of our family and friends waiting while Mom was having brain surgery eating an entire cookie basket some sweet friends sent us.
**Maybe I’ll be so nervous I won’t be able to eat. Who am I kidding?!? Wishful thinking. Snickerdoodles are already packed.
**Someone on the surgical team will call and update us every hour. I wonder who that person will be. I hope whoever they are, they are kind and compassionate and empathetic with a semi stressed mama. I should make them cookies too.
**I’m thankful God is in the business of restoration.
**I’m praying Amon comes out of surgery with the same little incredible personality he goes in with, but with a killer new heart.
**I would never be a surgeon or doctor or anyone involved with a person’s health. I would be terrible at it. I would cry all the time. My nerves could never handle it. I applaud all you medical professionals.
**Super glad God knows how our hearts feels.
**What time does Chick-fi-A open?
**I really hope we’re out of the hospital by Huddy’s birthday. If not, I hope the hospital will not object to a birthday celebration in Amon’s room…streamers and all. There is sure to be Green Lantern cookies or cupcakes too.
**Harper told me she only wants to see Amon once he’s awake and not hooked up to any machines. She seems nervous about all of this. Makes me sad to think she’s sad or worried about Amon.
**I wonder if Amon will feel different when he’s done with surgery. Right now when I put my ear to his chest I can hear that his heart sounds different than regular, healthy hearts. I wonder if it will still sound different when he’s all fixed up.
**I hope the wee Kelleys have fun while we are all tied up at the hospital.
**I think Sara in Australia is this crazy insanely wonderful lady whom I’ve never even met. She had a friend here in TN make us meals. Seriously Sara…you’re crazy kind. Thank you!
**I’m glad Vandy has wireless internet. They are Vandy though. They should.
**This is surely a 30th birthday Josh is never to forget. I thought for a second that I wished it would be different for him, but then I remembered this is exactly how God knew his 30th birthday would play out. One he will never forget.
**I hope we all get some sleep tonight.
**I think Amon is going to recover in record time and that he will not need any more surgeries. I still pray big, bold prayers.
**My house is so dirty right now. I cleaned our toilets yesterday…they were funk nasty. TMI? Today I may clean something else. Or make more cookies.
**I’m praying Josh has a really fantastic day today and that it’s way overly productive for him at work. Have I ever told you what he does? He’s an environmental scientist. Yep. He’s super smart. My brain doesn’t get it.
**Is it too early to eat pie?
**We have some really big faith in tomorrow and all that it will hold. Amon’s life will change tomorrow. It’s going to be a great day. God is too good.
