Well I finally turned the page on our new calendar; it now shows the month of January. As I turned it, it hit me just how close March sixth is. There are only two months left, and I know that they will go by fast. Josh and I just looked at each other and sighed. He pointed out that (hopefully) the next ten months will go by just as fast. Honestly, I can't believe these past eight months have gone by as quickly as they have (since we scheduled Amaya's surgery back in June).
Time is so strange, especaily when you have children. They can make a day feel like a month and a month feel like a day. Time spent waiting for a surgery, especially your child's is really hard to explain. The time spent waiting for a surgery is long, yet passes quickly. It is nice to have time to prepare, yet there are just some things that you can't prepare for. It allows for time to go through the cycles of emotions (fear, anxiety, acceptance, pain, denial, anger, hope, numbness,etc.). All the while you have no control over it. It keeps on passing, wether you want it to or not. So we've decided to control the one thing we can; how we deal with it. And enjoy the time we have until March sixth rolls around.
