UPDATE: Everything went well. He is now out of surgery. Thank you, everyone, for your kind words and prayers! ❤❤❤
In about 3 hours from now, my son is having surgery to remove a large kidney stone. He sent me a text this morning that said: ‘I should be ok, but just in case I love you so much. I am glad you’re my mom.’
I replied: ‘You WILL be okay! I love you MORE and I am super glad that you are my son!! We just prayed for you.’
As a former nurse, having assisted and observed several surgeries in the Lancaster, Pennsylvania hospital where he will have his surgery, I can close my eyes and almost feel like I am there. But I am in New Mexico, more than one thousand miles away. Praying. Praying. Praying.
For privacy, I don’t use real names on my blog, so I will just tell you that his first name begins with an ‘S’.
