Late last summer my mother was scheduled to get a hip replacement. Less than a week before surgery she got a phone call from one of the doctors saying they weren’t clearing her for surgery until she saw a cardiologist. With only a few days until surgery, she wasn’t able to secure an appointment and the surgery got cancelled.
The very next day my father was in the ER and our long, arduous ‘hospital season’ began. I shudder to think what life would have looked like if the timing had been different.
But God was in control and his timing is perfect.
Today my mother finally had her long awaited surgery and it went very well. They even had her up and moving a couple hours later, which I think is pretty amazing.
And one of the best parts about today was watching my dad sit by her side all day, like she had sat so many days and nights by his.
I love them both so much. ❤️❤️
