Patience: The capacity to accept or tolerate delay, trouble, or suffering without getting angry or upset.
I’m not sure how many of you saw my posts from yesterday, but unfortunately Beckett’s surgery was postponed until further notice. Thankfully, as we were pulling in our driveway at home we received a call which rescheduled Beckett’s surgery for today (10/6/16) at noon. Understandably the only question I kept asking all morning was if they were certain it would still happen today. With as much certainty a hospital can provide we were assured we were still on track. However, at one moment this morning I happened to look up at our surgeon’s PA making a face :-\ at her phone. She slowly looked up and said, “I’m so sorry, but we need to delay again.” Obviously we were a bit shocked, but one of the emergencies from yesterday is still having troubles today. It’s natural to get discouraged, but we are actively trying to hold to the perspective that another family is hurting much worse then we are. Soo….again, this seems to be the pace of Beckett’s journey, so perhaps it would be more alarming if it’s been smooth sailing….but perspective is always the lifesaver that keeps us afloat.
Sooo….here we go again. We have been offered the option of being admitted or going home and coming back at 7:30am tomorrow morning (surgery is suppose to begin at 9:00am). We’ll keep you posted…if you all are still reading by then. 😏
