January 14, 2014 was a big day for Stacey and me.
It was an even bigger day for our nearly six-month-old son Nolan.
He was scheduled for open-heart surgery to repair a heart defect he was born with.
Even though we were assured the AV canal repair had a 98% success rate we still were nervous knowing our son’s heart would be stopped as he was placed on the bypass machine.
We knew people were praying and we knew God had not forgotten us, yet it was impossible not to be nervous as we drove silently along the dark, empty highways at 4:30 in the morning.
Every now and then Stacey or I would start to cry quietly.
