Our appointment is in less than 24 hours now, and I admit that I have a one track mind. It's really the only thing that I can think about it at the moment.
dictionary.com gives two different definitions of the word "anxious":
1. full of mental distress or uneasiness because of fear of danger or misfortune; greatly worried; solicitous: Her parents were anxious about her poor health. 2. earnestly desirous; eager (usually fol. by an infinitive or for): anxious to please; anxious for our happiness.
For once, I think that I fall into the second category. I think that I'm doing pretty well at keeping the stress and worries at bay. I really think that I'm "earnestly desirous" and "anxious for our happiness".
Our appointment is at 11:30 am Arizona time, so please keep us in your prayers tomorrow, especially around that time (sidenote--did you know that Arizona does not observe Daylight Savings Time?). I will try to post an update as soon as I can...though I don't know if I'll be able to do so from my phone. But I know that your prayers have supported me through this journey thus far, so I do plan to share the news as soon as possible. I just pray that I have good news to share.
It's a blessing today to know that I'll know more by this time tomorrow. These three weeks of waiting have been a good opportunity to practice patience and trust, but like I said, I'm anxious to see my baby and know what's going on in there.
