Amazingly, this date is just one day shy of it being exacly one year since Rachel's first surgery, her initial lip repair!
We've waited for this date for so many months. First there was the waiting for the arrival of our new plastic surgeon. Then the waiting for his medical license from the state to come through so he could see patients. Waiting to see the ENT. And finally a surgery date.
It's really nice to have this date, however, upon just hearing the message on the answering machine, I was overcome with emotion because we are now at the next part of this journey. The journey has been an uneventful one for the last 10 months, and now in the coming weeks, I will be sending my baby off to surgery again, the third one in a year.
I know the Lord will get us through this journey, He's been faithful to do that and so much more over the last year.
