Surgery on Monday

Hello to all:

We've been told that Lindsay's surgery is going to be scheduled on Monday. I'll keep you all posted on that.

Suzie went back to work today. Yes, that's right she's working on travel bookings. We tagged teamed from my hotel room today while she was on the computer, I slept. She ended up in tears and said, "I can't do it all". I'll kick it up a notch and relieve her of that stress as much as possible.

Lindsay's on morphine to keep her calm until surgery. She seemed so at peace tonight when we visited her.

Honestly you guys, we would feel so alone without all of you checking in on this blog. Normally when you have a baby, lots of people are able to come up to see you and the new little one. We're all the way over here and we have this wonderful way of communication.

Even as Grandma, I haven't been able to hold my precious namesake granddaughter. I don't know how she feels or smells. I'm so thankful that Suzie had me so prepared so that I didn't go through disappointment in not being able to do so. I look at her and think she looks like a dark complected, dark haired Cruz (Sorry Cole). Her coloring is flawless and I think a Lindsay should be dark haired.

Yesterday we had visitors, Grandma Dean; JR's brother, Ken; his wife Suzan; son, Zachary; JR's sister, Deb; and daughter, Samantha. Then, Don and Sue arrived with the kids. What joy we had with family.

Tomorrow we're expecting Great Grandparents Dee and Clarence along with Uncle Robb and Aunt Carole. Our friend Tina Terry is also going to drive over tomorrow.

Well, time for this grandma to hit the sheets. Tomorrow's update will be here before I know it.

Heart hugs to all of you,
Linda

I sure hope Suzie isn't working on our vacation! If she is, we're switching travel agents:-)

Take it easy and know that Monday we'll have God so flooded with prayers that He won't know what to do. Lindsay has been on our church prayer chain for a few weeks, but I'll pass on the updates and have them pray accordingly. We're all thinking about you guys and wishing you the best.

Grandma, Suzie and JR--we think of you and that beautiful little girl constantly and speak of you often. We hate that we are all the way across the country and unable to give you our hugs and support in person!
Just know that you are in our thoughts and prayers, and stay strong.

Suzie, work from there if it helps to try to keep you grounded, but if not, don't. You are such a wonderful person and a dedicated worker, but you can't do it all--let those around you who love you take some of the load. There is only one person that needs you right now--everyone else will manage to get through this.

We love you all--and pass our love to Grandpa Bill, too.
