Surgery date...

What a horrible ending to a horrible day. I have been reduced to tears so many times. The girls are fine. It's just me. I just don't want to hold it together anymore. But I just wanted to let everyone know that surgery is scheduled for July 21st (grid surgery) and July 24th (epileptic surgery).

Its OK to let it go, Elaine. There are more shoulders to cry on than you know. Rest assured we are all here to support you in anyway we can. Please take care of yourself and get some well deserved rest.

Remember, sometimes it's good not to hold it together. I have to second that if there's anything at all that we can do we'll do it. We're here for you.

I'm so sorry that you are having such a tough time. I can't even imagine the stress this must add to your pregnancy. Hang in there...this is a good thing. Sophie's chance at seizure freedom! Everything will work out as God has planned. You (and Sophie) are in my prayers.

Great news but so scary of a situation for you and its ok to not feel ok about it. Thats just the momma instinct in you even more so since you are pregnant. We all just want to protect our little ones and during surgery its hard to be the protector. But just make yourself believe that it can only get better for your sweet girl!!!! Stay strong and remember its ok to let it out we are all here to give as much support as we can!

((((Hugs)))) and prayers being sent your way!!!!!!

Oh Elaine. This must be such a roller coaster for you -- on top of being pregnant when emotions are all over the place anyway. (Congratulations by the way!) Let it out. Take deep breaths. This is scary and exhausting. We are thinking of you and praying for darling Sophie.

Well, my sweet far away friend Elaine.You have journeyed alongside Zoey and I for a long time now.Your steadfast friendship and your reassuring comments and beautiful emails have sustained me in my own moments of doubt.So today, as your heart is anxious and filled with fear of the uncertain, I ask you to trust and call on that faith that you pass on so effortlessly to others.No one would expect you to be reacting any other way than the way you are.Although all of us know what the hope of surgery lends itself to,it is nonetheless,terrifying.The prospect of that in Zoey's already long lineage of stuff both reassures me and paralyzes me.But for today,in this moment, call on God to bring you peace and strength to get to the very next moment.And you will get there.As will Sophie and we are all here to give to you, whatever you might need.It probably will fall short and not be enough but we want to support you in whatever way we can.Please do not miss these moments that are before you, in anticipation of July.Live as fully and completely in the now.Trust me,I know how very difficult that is but please try the very best that you can.Right here,right now is all we have.Leave the rest to Him.Love to you all.

Hey believe me, you have to have these mini break downs or you'll lose it completely.

I hope that you are able to find a bit of hope and light everyday with Sophie. It is so hard sometimes but you'll keep on doing it. For Sophie. That's just what moms do. I am thinking of you and your family.

Elaine, Seeing that surgery is not an option for Colby, it is hard for me to put myself in your place...In fact, I dare not be so bold as to even imagine what your emotions are like right now...Just hold on to the fact that the doc must really feel good about Sophie's prognosis...Otherwise, he would NOT be suggesting this...Just think!!! Won't it be a WONDERFUL outcome for you all!!! This summer...A new baby and a new life for Sophie...for ALL of you...Y'all are in my prayers...It WILL be fine!!! Fondly, Cyndi (Colby's mom)
