So this is it! Tomorrow my Beanie has her fourth birthday! Her first is her actual day of birth, her second is the day she should've been born via scheduled caesar, her third is her original due date, and her fifth will be when they close her palate... Anyone who says having a baby isn't expensive, has not met me!
Starting to get excited now about seeing my baby after her operation - thought this moment would never come. Have packed her suitcase, and by the looks of it, you would swear my child is permanently moving into hospital, not just (hopefully) going for the day... but rather safe than sorry!
The only apprehension left now is my concern about any pain or discomfort she is going to be in. But that will be short lived and she has her 'team' with her to help her through it. Someone better keep an eye on me, though, because it might be one tablet for her and two tablets for me each time she needs them!
Grant is being his wonderful supportive, pillar-of-strength self. I can't tell you how amazing it is to be able to lean on him when I feel like my world is becoming wobbly with fear. He anchors me and reminds me that we are all in this together.
So, on that note, I sign off for tonight, and thank everyone for the well wishes and the abundance of love that is being sent our way.
I promise to send updates as soon as we have them.
