Saying Goodbye..

Is something I hate, especially when it has to be for so long. I just got back from the cemetery trying to fit 3 weeks worth of visits into one. So now i am sad and fighting back the tears.
It was also time to wash the brenhams hospital blanket that i sleep with every night. I havent washed it until today (i know, i know thats gross, but it has "him" on it, he was wrapped up in it the whole time at the hospital). I begged robb to let me leave it the way it was but he insisted it be washed before we leave for mayo. Deep down i know i had to do it, for my own health but it is so hard. now everyone thinks i am crazy huh?
Three weeks is a long time to be gone from home. i am trying to savor every last minute of being in my home and playing with my puppy.
I am going to miss it all. Please pray that this time goes fast!

I know it is hard, but you've got to remember Brenham isn't 'at the cemetery' and you are not leaving him! So there is no need to say goodbye! He's in your heart and he's going with you to Mayo and is with you everywhere you go, so tell him to pack up and you will all be back home in 3 weeks!

You are absolutely NOT crazy to not want to wash that blanket! :) And very wise to go ahead and do it, if it would risk your health not to. :) I'm so excited for your transplant! Blessings, HUGE blessings!!!

I know that feeling all to well. However, my blanket was beginning to smell like dog, and that was not pleasant. Praying for a wonderful transplant!

Sandy02 said it best...Brenham is with you wherever you go. He will be with you during this trip just as he's been with you every day since he was conceived. And I know that he will be looking over you as you prepare for this latest journey. Best of luck to you and many prayers and wishes for a successful transplant.

Katie, we were so honored to pray for you at church, and so many people will be praying for you and mindy during this whole time. You are not crazy at all and it is so precious to want to hold on to certain things the way they were. But as another friend has said, he is always with you, and is in your heart. Dear Brenham will be there in mayo with you. God especially will be there with all of you. Blessings to you, and we'll all keep praying! keep the postings coming!

Oh, Katie, I pray everything is on an easier path for you. You deserve it so much. I tend to attach so much sentimental value to things as well and think you are lucky to have something like Brenham's blanket. I just pray for comfort and peace in this process.

i don't think you are crazy or weird at all! i did the same thing when my caylin left to be with jesus! maybe it's more strange that i still haven't washed her blanket, but i stopped sleeping with it awhile ago now.

hope your surgery goes well and that you will recover quickly. i will pray for a speedy recovery, that the transplant is a success and that the time will go fast and you will be home before you know it!
