Here it is!
Those were some rough months. Don't know how I got through it, but here I am, crazy and/or nuts to do this again. Ha.
Leaving tomorrow morning to take this same baby (who is now 11) to have another surgery- his fourth. Pulmonary valve replacement #2 . Wish us luck . We will be home Friday if all goes well. It had better because I can't take any more excitement this summer. DH is refusing to think/talk about the pregnancy until the surgery is done. He says he just can't handle it. I get it. It will be super good to be done with it!
Surgery itself isn't until Wednesday. We are going to do something fun first and then there is testing.
I've felt worse. DH is taking the overnight shift. I'm not sure I can handle that. We are taking turns since we will have our DD with us too. DH is taking the pre op testing and the night after-definitely hard stuff keeping DS happy. I get to hand him over to be anesthetized. Which doesn't ever get easier, believe me. This procedure is easier than his last so I'm hoping it's straightforward and we get out of there ASAP. DS and I have some post traumatic hospital trauma
