I will never forget this date.
Etched in my mind
The darkness that was one year ago today.
The fear of the unknown.
Of so much to lose.
Sickness. Questions. More Questions. Testing. Waiting. Cancer? No God no please not her! More testing. Praying. Waiting. Heart condition? Relief? Confusion. Testing. Waiting. Testing. Diagnosis:
The baby’s heart is too large. Because one part is too small. It is wearing out quickly. It’s a miracle she lasted this long.
Surgery imminent. Go now!
Questions – Why? How did this happen? Why didn’t we know better?
Tears of fear. Hope. Guilt. What parent doesn’t know their child is dying?
Children’s hospital – chaos, questions, waiting. Please let me in to see my daughter!
Stabilized. Peace. Just hold on little one. Be strong as long as it takes till the operation. We are here. We love you. Don’t give up!
