Today is the day

Gosh, I can't believe it's here.

We are sitting in the waiting room of day surgery (next to a woman wearing way too much perfume) waiting for Kate to go in to surgery and have her central line placed. We'll go straight from recovery to the BMT unit for admission.

As expected I'm filled with so many emotions. Add in exhaustion (I've been up since 4am) and I am only functioning because of prayers be said for my family (and coffee but the prayers are doing way more).

Hopefully I can update later tonight. I am naively assuming Kate will go to bed like normal tonight and I'll have time to blog. I'm sure the joke will be on me when I realize this won't be the case.

We ask for any and all thoughts and prayers you have today as we start the next phase of this journey.

Herms, I am praying for you all today. I can't believe the day is finally here. I know that we are riding the coaster of emotions from afar, but that it is NOTHING compared to what you, Alex and sweet Kate are experiencing.
Know that we love you all so very much and wish so badly that we could be right there with you.
143. Your strength and faith continue to amaze me. I know that God's hand is in this and he has mighty plans for all of you.
Love you more than words can say.

Just wanted you to know my daughter Lucy included in her prayers one for "Baby Kate" last night. She asked Babay Jesus to take care of Baby Kate and to fix her boo boo so they can maybe someday be friends!
I wish you bravery, strength, hope and faith
