Waiting Day

with 2 comments

This will be my waiting day. It’s the day when all the action happens, but all I can do is wait for it to be completed. My mind has been contemplating the possible ways our plan could be thwarted, and then either planning ways to avoid pitfalls or summoning thoughts of all the ways it will proceed flawlessly.

I will feed the horses, dog, and cat, and then put Delilah in her outdoor kennel for the day. We head out in rush-hour traffic for the hospital in the Twin Cities, and then I find ways to kill most of the day waiting for news from the doctor that Cyndie’s hip replacement surgery was a complete success.

Once that has happened, I leave Cyndie at the hospital with her family for support, and dash back to Wintervale to feed the horses and let Delilah out.

In a few days, I will bring her home and we’ll focus on recovery and rehabilitation. The next thing you know, she’ll be ridin’ horses or something. I’ll be happy just to see her walk pain-free again. That will be an incredible gift.

  1. Please give Cyndie my best. She has been through so much so I hope this works out for her. I hope she is up and running around very soon! Sounds like you will be “running” around a lot before she does. So in your spare time you can stop by Source and do some work. We could sure use some help!!

    • Thanks, Lynne! It would be easier for me if you could just move the company a little closer to Wisconsin. See what you can do.
      I will pass along your message to Cyndie. Having so many folks sending well-wishes is invigorating and bolsters her recovery effort. You guys truly ARE fabulous!
