Save the Date....

Save the date cards are usually cards with the photos of a soon to be wed couple who is asking that you reserve the date noted to attend their upcoming wedding. Well my wedding has come & gone.  Juwan and I have been married 8 years and we recently became parents of a wonderful miracle named Mylah Roberta. 

Our "Save the Date" is Thursday, July 5, 2012. That is the date that Mylah will undergo her Pulmonary Artery Banding surgery at U of M C.S. Motts Children's Hospital in Ann Arbor, MI. 

Have you ever known something was coming; built up the anticipation, excitement/fear and then eventually calmed down knowing that it would have to happen but just not sure when. Then have reality smack you in the face once you had a DATE?

That's me currently. This whole process has been one long emotional roller-coaster. Full of ups & downs, twists & turns. Now I feel like we've come to that one part of the ride; that BIG HILL, the tallest & steepest part so far.  We're cranking up slowly towards the top, & as we get there I have to decide- either face this drop with your hands up in the air & eyes open, or eyes closed, holding on to the safety bar for dear life.

It's during this time that I must remain strong. I can't let the enemy creep into my mind and cast doubt on this situation. The decision has been made, we have a date and we must prepare to accompany our daughter to one of the most important events of her life thus far.

I was asked how did I picture my life with Mylah by one of the cardiologists & I have to remind myself of the visions that I have. She's going to get bigger, she's going to grow up to be a strong little girl. She will celebrate her 1st birthday-its a Candyland Themed party(yes I've already started planning) set for March 23, 2012 with a walk on March 24, 2012. She will attend preschool, & go on to kindergarten. She will love to shop-like her mom & grandma. She will be a little fashionista. I will teach her to play volleyball-her legs are long for a reason!  I have so much more that I envision for Mylah and during these next few weeks I know that those things will help me get through some of my toughest days.

I know that this part of the journey won't be easy, I wasn't expecting it to be. I have to be strong. Strong for her & strong for my husband. Together we will make it through. I just ask that you please continue to pray for us and most of all our little girl! 

My Bib is bigger than me!
