Postponed

The surgery has been postponed.

Her heart stopped three times in the night and the general view is she is too weak for the surgery. There also seems to be the feeling that to put her little body through a lengthy operation is needless suffering.

There isn't much about this situation that doesn't seem to be needless suffering.

I'm off to sit in a corner and knit. Extreme concentration makes other things easier to block out. Hey.. that counts as mediation. Right?

oh sweetie.........

many, many, many hugs.......

and yes, meditation is actually extreme concentration......hopefully resulting in a calmed state, but blocking things out might be what you can reasonably hope for right now........

much love hon........

I'm so sorry to hear this. And oonagh is right. Extreme concentration - focus - is good, at least in small doses.
