This morning we are up early to get Ben to the hospital for his eye surgery. It is an outpatient surgery and should be no problem, but I am filled with nervous energy that I will be trying my best to conceal from my scared little Benny boy.
To calm my nerves I am having yet another cup of coffee (shut up) and looking through the pictures I took yesterday at one of our favorite swimming spots. Seeing as how Ben will not be able to go swimming for at least 10 days after his surgery, and then school starts, I figured we had better get to our swimming hole one last time this summer and soak up some sun, fun, and swimming.
It was not as hot as I would have liked, and it rained earlier in the morning, so the water felt especially cold when the kids first attempted to swim.
In a few minutes I will wake Ben, whisk him off to the hospital without any food or water and play the sit and wait game until his surgery time comes. If you would, please say a little prayer for my Ben and his beautiful blueberry eyes. Thanks!
