I can’t help but think of that favorite saying of my sweet hubby – “It is what it is.”
We got a call yesterday from UW Madison that Tate’s spinal cord is indeed tethered and he needs surgery.
He is scheduled for surgery in Madison next Friday, October 9th, and will be hospitalized for four days if all goes as planned.
I feel a little sick as I think about carrying Tate into that operating room and holding him until he is asleep – which is what I did with Eliza for her surgery last year.
It is definitely the most overwhelming thing I have ever done.
I am thankful that Blake saw the need for it to be me to have that honor.
And I know he will see the need for it to be me again – for those many same reasons that were there last year.
Here’s the thing about life with Jesus though.
He will meet us there.
In that operating room.
Right when we need Him – not before.
And I am going to rest in that as we prepare for next Friday.
