Last weekend, this song was on my mind. This morning I thought I'd look it up on youtube. Big mistake. The tears were flowing. (Make sure you turn the player off on the right first.)
Before we got to go home from the hospital, I was busy packing things up, not really paying much attention to Rory because she was watching Dora. I looked over and she nearly had tears in her eyes. I think the poor girl thought we were going to leave her there! :o( After that I told her, "Mommy and Daddy will never leave you. I promise." From the time we got home until she went to bed, she said almost a dozen times, "I never leave you. I promise." Sweet, sweet girl.
Josey - You know, Dad’s are typically pretty tuff guys. I know that I usually try to be. (Don’t listen to Megan if she says otherwise) 😉 Last weekend at the hospital, I am sitting there looking at Rory, all the crap stuck in her, getting poked and prodded. I was doing alright until it was just her and I. She was laying there watching TV and all of a sudden looked up at me and says ever so seriously, “Daddy, I want to go home.” It took all that I had not to break down. I held it but when Megan showed up I lost it. I wanted to go home too. I knew that Rory was going to be ok, but the thing that gets me most are all of the families out there that don’t get to bring their kids home. Those that are terminally ill, or even those kids that don’t have a family to sit by them or take care of them. I just hope that I never have to deal with that. If I do I know that God will be there for us and I hope all of you out there that are not as fortunate know that God is there and there is nothing that you can’t make it through with him.
God bless the children.
Kelli - Girl, I thought I had Isaac’s blog open. I keep looking for it. It’s a terribly sad song. I am so glad that Rory is okay! Many prayers that it doesn’t happen again…
