We have a date!!!
And what a beautiful date it is.
Ashlea's transplant is scheduled for the 11th November.
The 11th November 2011. 11-11-11.
I LOVE the date. I wonder if they'd do the surgery at 11am for me???
I love that it is scheduled for Remembrance Day. I always try and stop for a minute at 11am on the 11th November to remember all those who have fought in war. I particularly think of my Grandfather who was at the Great War on the original Armistice Day. I try and imainge how he felt. The war was finally over.
It was over.
They had survived.
I love the symmetry that now not only will November the 11th be Remembrance Day for everyone, it will also be our own personal Remembrance Day. Hopefully it will come with the same emotions.
What a relief.
Its over now.
