It seems time passes way too quickly most of our lives. There are a few moments when time seems to stop. It rarely happens on a sublime vacation or when we want it. Time seems to slow down and mock us during the worst moments in our lives: a death of a relative, a horrible accident, financial catastrophe, etc. As we prepare for our son’s big surgery, I am hoping the recovery time is not agonizingly slow. I do not want to wish my life away, but I do not want my son and our family to linger in pain. I just hope the surgery is not cancelled like it was last month when the surgeon got the flu the day before going in. I do not know how many more times we can go through this preparing for surgery bit.
