(Waiting on the ambulance)
The title will probably be longer than this post today. Friday afternoon Jake broke his arm and John took him to the doctor…After x-raying it…the determination was made he was going to need surgery.
John rode with Jake in the ambulance downtown to MUSC thinking the surgery would be that evening…but that didn’t work…he was admitted with the hope that one of the surgeons could do it at seven Saturday morning.
Mandy called and asked if I could be ready to come on early Saturday morning to stay with Eva Cate while she got the car to pick up John and Jake hopefully if he was released soon after surgery.
A lot of “If’s” in all of this…so I am writing this blog Friday night…for Sunday, November 1 All Saints Day since I will probably be heading out early.
In life we all have to learn to “two step” don’t we…learning to fall back and then quickly move forward to whatever new is happening.
Sunday when I return home I will catch you up on how everything turned out. Life is never dull is it?
The informal definition of a saint…is a kind, patient person. At six these attributes are present in Jake…but subject to change like any little six year old. But our love for him makes him a saint to us…a gift from heaven…that transforms us all with God’s magic…more powerful than any other kind…even witches’ spells on Halloween. 🙂
So until tomorrow…Please keep our little Jake in your prayers…not the Halloween for this pirate that he wanted…still..we are just so blessed to have him (hopefully) home.
