Welcome to my little corner of blogland! This is the only sane spot I can come in my crazy life! :) Here I share my sometimes funny sometimes NOT-day to day insanity I call my life, along with my sweet wooly hubby & all our boys :)

If you have built castles in the air, your work need not be lost; there is where they should be.
Now put foundations under them.

Monday update!

ok, so now that the holiday weekend is over the quality of nurses definitely improved (thats sad though). We've had very good nurses the last 2 days. Danny was suppose to stay home and work today and maybe tomorrow but couldn't make himself stay away he went home yesterday afternoon and was back by 9pm. The boys are staying with Bobby (oye lol) but all is going well so far there. SO yesterday for some harebrained cockamamy idea they were going to turn his temp shunt very low moving and then at midnight were going to turn it off. Thats when I called Danny at home freeeeeeaking out I was like no WAY did he get in as bad of shape Sun. night as he did with not draining for a few HOURS and they want to turn it off from midnight til 8ish a.m.?????? Well they needless to say were NOT able to do that, when they turned it to about 25% function he was very very ill within about 45 min. Helped too that we had a nurse who agreed last night. Some nurses are all just extensions of Doctor's brain's, some nurses actually have brains of their own ;-) so he went to surgery this a.m. at about 8a.m. back in the room by noon. Ate some pudding by 2pm and when I left to come down here he was eating chicken strips and chips. He is a little more sore, they put it in his chest area this time instead of his abdomen area. If all still goes well he will go home tomorrow afternoon, then 10 days at home before post-op checkup and stitches removal. SO I just pray now that the next 24 hrs go by fast and hopefully the next time I update will be when we are ALL at home! Love to all, thank you soooo much for the prayers and well wishes. xoxo mel

Keeping the prayers going and the fingers crossed!!! Can't blame Danny for wanting to stay. :)

Thanks for the update! It is a shame the weekend nurses aren't top-notch. It's like that here too.

Hurry home little dude!
