Through the prelims

Today we got through the prelims : blood work, x-rays, EKG. It was over fast and wonderfully uneventful.

The family all made it in. I have a terrific family. I have to fight my desire to curl up in a tight ball around my girl and just be alone. At times all the attention is simply exhausting, I feel like a terrible host at the worst theme party ever. The tiniest things - making beds, getting drinks, dealing with food or such overwhelm me.

But I do need my support system because the wind blows hard.

Tomorrow we go in. Sierra says she's not scared, has her courage at the ready. I'm not scared either either, just a little worn around the edges.

Maybe more than the edges.
