So here it is... Friday... I last updated on Monday... so logically, by now I should have that medical release from Vanderbilt that they told me would be mailed out on Monday afternoon. Do I have that release? Hmmm... Nope! I called them today and the lady had NO idea who I was, had NO record of me calling SO the release never even got mailed. *sigh* Supposedly they faxed it to Fort Campbell today and I will pick it up tomorrow while I'm there and fill it out and they'll fax it back to Vandy for me. Let's see how that works out.
So I'm guessing that by the time Vandy gets the fax on Monday, then goes through ALL of Kennedy's records to find the studies that Shriners wants, and then mails it up to PA (which I'm sure they'll do snail mail), they MAY get it by next Friday. This means the anesthesiologist won't see it until a week from Monday... and I'm guessing he'll decide he doesn't want to go through all 200 pages they'll have to send him, so either he'll fake it... or who knows, maybe he really WILL read it all, and either way we're looking at the beginning of May before they even TALK about a surgery date. In the meantime, Kennedy is being a trooper in her neck brace!
It has occured to me several times over the past week that maybe God is delaying this surgery for a reason. The obstacles that keep arising are so... strange, and in my mind, unnecessary. So I'm praying that His will is done and if there IS a reason for putting this surgery off, that He will reveal that to me so I don't continue to sit here and wonder what the heck is going on in people's heads!
Anyway, all is mostly well here. Kennedy's been very whiney this week, and running random fevers. We're guessing it's just a virus, I just wish she would show SOME other kind of symptom, it would make mom feel better! The other kids are doing great. They are happy it's Friday and are looking forward to soccer tomorrow and church on Sunday. I am having just a wonderful week with my allergies. My eyes are running, my head is pounding, and I feel like I could sleep for a week! HA!
I have SO many new pictures to get off my camera... some of them are absolutely adorable, as I'm sure you can imagine! :). I'll try to get to that this weekend!
Thank you for continuing to check in on us and continuing to pray. Right now, just pray that all these little details work themselves out... one way or another.
I am thankful for perspective and that Kennedy does so well in her neck brace.
