I got a call today letting me know that Mia was still in rejection, but we wouldn't be given a number or any other information until tomorrow. The doctors and pathologists need to get together. They will call me tomorrow afternoon.
Is there an option where I can reject the rejection? Object? project? any word really except reject?
I am still planning on good news tomorrow, but I did consume a healthy portion, and when i say healthy we're talking a solid 1/5th of one of the All American Chocolate cakes from the Costco bakery. It was good.
Parenting is hard! Rejection is hard!- both for transplanted organs and
not getting picked for the play. It is so difficult for me to see their
sad faces, but disappointment is part of life...and it makes us
stronger. Mia doesn't know she is in rejection and doesn't have a care
in the world, but I am so disappointed. Can I opt out of the adult role for awhile? or at least today? If my parents could have seen my face when I heard the
news about Mia I am sure they would have felt the same way I did as the parent of my kids getting bad news. I am new at this. My kids have never been turned away from an experience, but I suppose I have been a parent of a girl in rejection for a few months now. After raising 6 girls, and witnessing their disappointments, my parents somehow made it out alive- and I'm sure I will too. I'm just such a softy.
After Ellie left to her cousins Jense and I went on a mommy/Jensen date. We actually just went to the grocery store, but we both enjoyed our time. He weighed all of our produce (something I have never done) and marked everything off his homemade list. I think his troubles melted away somewhere between me telling him that if he could find the artichokes we could buy some, and when I let him pick any cereal he wanted.
So mom, dad... If you buy me whatever I want it might make me feel better. :-)
