Tuesday Morning

Hey, guess what!? It’s my sweet husband’s 31st birthday! Lucky me, he didn’t mind missing us for a few days… Lucky him, he gets to celebrate with some of the guys from work tonight AND again with us when we get home! 🙂

Mom and Dad left for Savannah around 10:00 a.m. I baked a meatloaf for tonight’s dinner (at least for the kids, the adults’ status is still unknown!) and started some laundry, got bags put together for me in the waiting room and for Mom in her hospital room post-op, made lunch, nursed Susannah and put her down, played a few minutes of trains with Jonas and put him down for “rest time,” and picked up some of the hurricane of toys.

Ironically, the tidiest the living room has been in three days is NOW, when Mom’s not sitting on the sofa to appreciate it! Hopefully I’ll get it equally as clean (or better!) before she’s released from the hospital in a few days. 😉

Mom’s neighbor Rachel is coming over in a few minutes with her daughter Addison. When they arrive, I’m off to the hospital. I’m a little nervous about the timing — I will need to head back down here right during rush hour to feed my kids dinner and nurse Susannah down for the night (5:30ish bedtime for her) and then it’s 45 minutes back up to the hospital… so if they start Mom’s procedure ‘on time’ at 1:00, that might put me away from the waiting room at the end. Which is exactly what I want to be there for, to be by Dad’s side as we get the debriefing from Dr Burke. {Sigh} Praying, praying, praying. Mom keeps telling us it’s all in God’s hands, and she’s right.

I don’t have a swell smartphone, so no updates from me until either late tonight or first thing tomorrow.

  1. So, what is the update? Did you post it somewhere else and I just missed it? It is no longer Tuesday.. I have been praying, but I would love to know how to direct my prayers for your mother.
