Until Allie & Toby's flowers arrived today, I didn't know how tightly wound-up I was. I could physically feel myself relax as I was reading the card and realized who had sent them. I noticed today that some of my replies over the last week were tending towards being short and abrupt. I can only attribute them to the tension, frustration and fear I was feeling with the knowledge of surgery coming quickly. I hope that I will be able to recognize those feelings and stop them before they get posted.
Allie & Toby, thank you again for the flowers, they arrived just in time, for me.
