tomorrow's the day

I'm as ready as I ever will be.

Today was a really crazy day, but we got through it. We got lots of loose ends tied together.

People called all day with good wishes and prayers for a successful surgery.

Getting so many calls... I was just so frazzled with everything; I left too many things to the last minute. I wanted more calm time with my kids, and it didn't really happen; until the blessed time I got to lie next to Azriel as he drifted off to sleep. Shifra was in the top bunk in Azriel's room, and after Wazi fell asleep, she & I were whispering together. It was yummy.

Yesterday, on Shabbat, I thought of something that I needed to ask the surgeon about. I had to try pretty hard to reach him, but we finally did connect this afternoon, and thankfully he put my mind at ease. It has been such a roller coaster.

Roller coaster. Three years of a roller coaster. In Hebrew it translates to "mountain train"... I really do want to get off the train. I wouldn't mind being in the mountains, though!

Our new his & her children's helpers were over today for the afternoon & evening experience here, and I think everyone got a little more used to each other. They are such good, warm people, thank Gd.

I am just a jitter of nerves tonight at 11:04pm. I have been all day.

Going to take that sleeping pill now...
Robert will update as soon as he can.

All your prayers are amazing. Thank you with all my heart.


  1. Sarah dear, probably you won't see this until after. Just know that our thoughts and prayers are with you, now and until robert gives the all-clear.
    May this be the last health test, and may you enjoy good health ad 120 with your beautiful family. Lots of love, Barbara

  2. I'm praying for wisdom for the surgeon and health care workers and for you and your family to have peace through the surgery.

  3. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family!
    Allen, MIchelle & the boys
