As we get ready to head to Pittsburgh Children's Hospital, I can hardly stand the anticipation...the anticipation of not knowing what to expect. As many of you know, "C" (who will be 11 months on Thursday) has a "mass" that is growing on his cheek bone. We are being referred to a Pediatric Craniofacial Plastic Surgeon to take a look at what we are dealing with. I'm not sure that all of this has sunk in yet. We're almost in robot mode. I have been so busy organizing and packing and making sure I have everything ready to go that I haven't really had a chance to think about what is going to happen. Sure I know we're facing surgery but the magnitude of this hasn't all hit me yet. It probably won't until we are looking face to face at the hospital. I am certain that we will be in the best of hands but again, it's the not knowing. As a parent, we don't ever think we will be in a situation like this...it always happens to someone else. But, it has happened to us. The only thing we can do is face it head on and pray for the best. Whatever comes our way...we will be ready for it!
