we are back from LA, unpacked and ready for a new week.

it was a good weekend.

relaxing (since i got to sleep in)

and hard because i am processing next steps for david’s heart surgery.




the cardiologist explained that david’s surgery would be open heart surgery,

not a less invasive surgery (like i’d hoped).

and before we schedule surgery they want to do a heart catheterization

to measure blood pressure and chamber size.

so that will be another test at ucla under anesthesia.




these are the moments where i stop

reflect on the turns this journey has taken

{that i never expected}

and what a beautiful journey it is.

and i’m reminded that i am not in control.

but i have a good God who is.

so grateful.
