I think the way you used the earthquake to help explain panic was a super idea. You don't know what to do, where to go and it is hard standing in the "safe" area of your home waiting to see if the roof caves in. Yup that is anxiety.
I hope the quakes stop now. I also don't remember if your granddaughter was going to be able to have her surgery at your local hospital. It sounds like it is your local hospital. I am praying for you.Hugs
Yes I too live near/close to where earthquakes have been happening lately in the midwest. I would normaly be freaked out by something like this but oddly they dont bother me like the tornados do.
It is Ironic!
I wish the best for you and family and will say a prayer for her.
