Ashrie drew this sketch yesterday about her mom's trip to the hospital and how she envisions the future. I don't exactly know how she feels right now and if she's really ready for a younger sister to share mom and dad's attention. But ready or not, here she comes!
Today is Jane's schedule for CS operation. It is in fact the only procedure of choice for her because normal delivery is impossible for her case, placenta praevia. That's the main reason why she was bleeding for the whole month of May, why she was admitted for a week even before her due date, why she will deliver today instead of June 18, and why I wasn't able to report for work for almost 3 weeks in total!
While waiting at the Operating Theatre lounge I have realized that it is more difficult to sit and wait for the results, to be clueless and helpless. Unlike during Ashrie's birth that I was with Jane inside the OR and I knew exactly what was happening. It makes you trust God more, to cast all your worries, burdens and doubts into the hands of the All-knowing God.
But God is indeed gracious to us. He allowed the baby to reach full term before she's delivered. I just hope and pray that everything will be alright for the both of them and we can all go home safely in a few days, just like what Ashrie drew.
May 28 is a good date after all because Ashrie's birthday is April 28. It's easier for the dad to remember.
