Today is a big day in our journey with Lincoln. We decided to have a port surgically placed under his skin that will last for the few years to come. Because this is surgery there are risks and recovery, just another thing added onto our plate of things that seem to be overflowing right now.
It's not that we can't handle what we are being given, but we seem to be losing some important things we have to have in our normal living. Things at work, things with Emma and even things with each other. We don't want to give up these things but they seem to slip away sometimes and we have to pick up the pieces that sometimes break down. There are now hundreds of people behind us, praying, giving up their time, sending us money for the little comforts that help and the great things to come, and just saying the right thing at the right time. We need these desperately but even more importantly we don't want to lose the rest of our lives. I know this first month is intense and we all hope to resume to our summertime lives, I just wish I could hurry through this week and hear what the next few months are going to be like.
