Surgery is today. 01/10/11
We know we are second on the surgery list but the nurses tell us this really doesn't mean much except Mason will have his surgery sometime today. It could be 7 in the morning or it could be 7 at night. I will update or my friend Tiff will update everyone the second we have an actual time.
So pray. Or send good wishes, good thoughts, JuJu. Throw a penny in a wishing well if you happen to pass one. We would appreciate it more than we can say.
George and I are so grateful for all the love and support you have all given us. We honestly never realized how much just a few words could come to mean so much to us. We feel like we are on this journey with you and it's so much better with company.
George and I are asking everyone to please do not text or call us.
Please understand that we love and appreciate everyone's support more than we can express but for the next few days we need this time to concentrate on caring for Mason. We are asking this of both our family and friends. We will be calling our mother's to update them and Aunt Tiff is on duty to update the blog. Again please understand we are asking this only because we need this to allow us to concentrate Mason and his recovery and for no other reason.
While we are at the bed side we cannot have our phones on so we can't see text messages or answer phone calls anyway
We need to have our phones on 24/7 so the Dr's can contact us anytime in case Mason is in crisis and the phone calls and text messages are draining our batteries.
Sleep, for the next two days, will be almost non-existent for George and I we both will be catching catnaps whenever and if we can. Since we can't turn off our phones we might be woken up and getting even less sleep than we otherwise would have.
We would love love love it if you would leave a message here on the blog for Mason. Or if you would rather send an email. When I put together Mason's memory book I am going to be including all the messages of love and support. I want him to really know how so many people were there for him and for us.
I am at Mason's bedside now and don't plan on leaving till he goes to surgery so I will have hours to update the blog. I have so many details to share about our boy and the last few days.
Again, you are all such a blessing to us. I honestly don't know how we got so lucky to have so much love and support sent our way. Thank you
