Today I am undergoing surgery to remove my "eye lump" (as my children call it). The past few days, Angel has been having nightmares about me leaving and not coming back and has insisted on accompanying me to the hospital. Then, last night, Angel and Grins were playing "doctor" (a common role play at our house) and Grins said "Lay down. I'm going to take these scissors and cut off your eye lump." So, it's been on the childrens' minds much more than my own, apparently. The only thing I'm concerned about is their worry for me....but hopefully their fears will disappear when I come home fine....and sans eye lump.
Wish me luck! :)
