the alarm screamed at me this lovely morning at 3 am
but, i hadn't really slept much last night...
we had to be in seattle by 5:40 am and it is over a 2 hour drive!
i am in a waiting room in seattle, wa
waiting for my husband to come out of surgery
he is having hip surgery this morning
the last few times i have been to a hospital awaiting surgery
it was for me...i am not sure if i like being the one waiting or
being the one operated on...sitting here alone in a cold waiting room
drinking awful coffee, waiting...yes, here i wait.
it is rainy and cold here today
in a city known for their starbucks
i should be able to find a decent cup of coffee
but i do not want to leave until he is in his recovery room
i packed my bags, i will be staying here with him
the hospital has private rooms with cots
so i packed...fruit, chips, pretzels, books, laptop
but how can i read right now...
my mind keeps stopping mid-sentence so i can pray
for my husbands safety, a successful surgery and that God would
guide the surgeon's hands.
will you join me? praying for my hubbie?
as i await the dr. to call my name and tell me all went great...
i ask for and covet your prayers.
i have faith
i know God has a plan
and i know that all things work for good.
i can do all things through christ who strengthens me
