I've had four surgeries. Appendectomy, two Radio Frequency Catheter Ablations on my heart, and one cesarean section. It's amazing that even with all that surgical experience, having one of my children have surgery is a freaky deal, and totally different from having it myself. It's minor surgery, but the general anaesthetic is not minor in my mind! It will be really tough. And Brent is away. He has been away since Monday for work related training and won't be able to get out of it for tomorrow, so I'm going to be trekking the hallway of the hospital all by myself. Brent's mom agreed to take Ayden and Riley overnight, and took tomorrow morning off work so she could take Ayden to school for us, and look after Riley. Hooray for family! I don't know what I'd do without them.
In the meantime, Matthew and I are going to White Spot for a dinner date, just the two of us, for a Pirate Pack and some fun times. Pray for me, too, that my nervousness over the surgery doesn't show! He's nervous himself and doesn't need to carry my emotions on top of his own. He's mostly worried that it will hurt! Grandma told him that his daddy had the same operation at the same hospital, when daddy was 5. That helped!
Thanks you guys. You're awesome.
