A Different Kind of Nesting

Dad got the call yesterday that he is officially on the transplant list. We are thrilled. The average wait time for a heart is 2 months at the Carolina Medical Center. However, we’ve been told that his could come much sooner than that because he is on the top of the list for his blood type. We could get the call in an hour or it could be awhile – even longer than the estimated 2 month period. So now I feel like I am 9 months pregnant and waiting for labor. Immediately, I may have to change plans and get to Charlotte. Immediately, someone else may have to step in and help with meals and childcare. Thankfully, with two teens and two tweens, this isn’t as hard as it once was. However, it still means I feel like I need to have food ready and the house in decent shape, school plans ready to go and I can’t be too far from home. We are so very thankful to be only a phone call away from the recovery side of all this waiting!

    Tina, I know how you feel. When Nana was sick, we were always in anticipation for the next thing. Even if you have to let the school work, housework, and menu planning go, I know that the time spent with your father and mother will be more precious to all of you than having it all together. We will be praying for the Lord’s timing for you all! /hugs
