Getting Nervous

A week from Wednesday Riley will be going in to All Children's Hospital for his surgery. He is starting to ask a lot of questions. I think this is a good thing, but I am concerned that he is starting to stress over this. I know I am getting nervous, very nervous. He is just such a good boy who has faced countless struggles in his short life. I hate the idea of him facing challenges more than the "normal" kid. I, personally, think he has already fought so hard that it doesn't seem fair.

I know he will be in great hands with his surgeon. I know he will do great in the surgery. I know this is necessary. I just hate the thought of my baby hurting. I wish I could just run away with him and protect him from every hurt. I know that isn't possible... I just wish.

So, if you are a prayerful person, please keep Riley in your prayers. If you are not one to pray, then just send him good thoughts. It is so appreciated by one very nervous mother.
