My fighter

We found out this week that indeed, Balin will need another surgery for another hernia/hydrocele.Yup,this is the same exact procedure he had done last year. I have no idea yet when the surgery will take place. We meet with a surgeon on Tuesday next week. Lucas will be in Laredo. Our hope is that we can schedule the surgery in March, maybe around Spring break so we can not worry about Ayden and school and if Lucas is out of town then I can get more help. If the Dr thinks we need to take care of it sooner than we will continue trusting that god will take care of the details. We are so grateful to have insurance, even if it is more expensive than it was before and even if the deductible is higher at least we know that we wont have bills that will be completely in crazy ville. I'm overwhelmed with gratitude and almost feel guilty that my biggest fears right now are for the comfort of my family, and the annoyance of a surgery when in reality Balin is very healthy. We have access to health care, clean water,safe homes. He will have an outpatient surgery. go home with good medication where he will be held and cushioned and set up with movied and blankets and love and peace.I'm burdened with the images of orphans in Haiti tonight. Children who have no parents and must face this disaster with no one to to worry about them or hold them or tell them its okay. No one to rock them to sleep. No one to make them a blanket nest and rub their forehead until they fall asleep How many children will die alone and afraid? How many more children will survive this only to be alone in the aftermath? Who will fight for the orphans?
