I have a babysitter for today -- the idea was to hunker down and meet some of my work goals before heading out of town for George’s wedding (Isaac’s brother). But, here I am all flustered and unable to focus -- as I type this, my brother is in surgery for a kidney transplant -- my dear, sweet brother and his dear, sweet donor. I’m both excited for him and nervous.
So, admittedly, I’m indulging my distracted self in a little blog therapy -- photograph something fun I’ve made and show it to my friends -- a sure-fire, feel-better solution (you always say the nicest things - thank you!). And, here it is – a watercolor of Elijah’s name (if that wasn’t obvious). The “E” is a disembodied bird beak – who knows what I was thinking, but it’s cute, huh?
Anyway, if any of you are praying-types, please say a prayer for my brother! I should have news in a couple of hours.
UPDATE: Well, everything went very well and all parts are working. It'll be a number of weeks, with close supervision by specialists, before he's given a full stamp of approval. Thank you for your prayers.
