We had hoped that we would have some preliminary results this morning, but there were none. Nor were there any in the afternoon. The day passed slowly with Drew handling his pain very well. Lane and Kim had been trading places every night so that one parent stayed with Drew while the other stayed with the other kids. Tonight was Lane's night.
Our church had never been more precious to us than in those chaotic, confusion-filled first days that we waited and wondered and prayed. Ladies prepared meals, bought groceries, and took care of the needs that we never even considered. Hailey took up the slack in making sure that the other kids' everyday lives were disrupted as little as possible. And, we waited.
