I love my sister to death, and someone this isn't something you share with your brother? I knew there was discussion of the procedure, but you'd think someone would contact me so I could have her in my thoughts. I'm just thankful that all went well and everything is okay.
Ah, the punishment for not telling me is this post-surgery post ("I wasn't thinking when I sent it to you"). Seriously...
Yes, I'm an ass....
But I love my sister and want everything to be okay.
I'm her big brother and that is what I'm supposed to do, but this includes worrying. I din't even have such an opportunity because I didn't know.
And n addition to a successful surgery, there was also a wonderful celebration during Refugee Awareness Week held at Sea Side in Bridgeport, Connecticut. Several families I have worked with since arriving to Connecticut were there, as well as community organizations that I've loved working with. After six years in the state, it felt like a family union
I couldn't be more proud (and will need to save my Keynote Skype session with Kanyea, Akbar, Omar, and Ali to the University of Florida for another day - it's too good not too share and I'm still wiping away tears of laughter and joy from the experience).
Happy Refugee Awareness Week!
Also, I wish my little sister the best recovery after her procedures.
