How to pack for the unknown is not easy. Our suitcases were heavy with books, electronics and all their cables! I even packed some protein shakes and bars. Who knows when I'll get to eat?
I had a hard time leaving this morning. I kissed Rebecca and Caitlin goodbye and held back my tears. I will miss them. But, I know they are in good hands with grandmas and aunts near by and might I add, lots of friends who check in and friends to keep Caitlin busy. My sister is at the house now and my mom comes in Friday morning. What a blessing to have a loving family! So many have asked how they can help and truly, I wish I knew.
Tomorrow is Kevin's day to continue as a patient of more"pokes and prodding". This time at the Mayo Clinic. I can't remember how many specialist he is seeing tomorrow, but it's more than three. I've been reading up on what to expect from a heart transplant but I'm not so up on the newest treatmenta for AL amyloidosis. We've been told different things. So tomorrow is a new day of learning more. I'm holding up quite well. I'm kind of surprised. I didn't know I had this in me. I'm not in denial; I know it's just the beginning :)
