How can someone so cute be so much work



Pre- Op

Thankfully between Auntie and Uncle Ed I didn't have to take two 2 year olds to the marathon pre-op appointment. We left the house a little after noon and did not get back to Auntie's until almost 6. She made a nice dinner and invited The Gotz Family over for dinner (whew no dinner or dishes for me tonight). We saw the Anesthesiologist, admitting nurse, pre-op nurse, life specialist and then spent another hour getting a pre surgery physical. Caden went crazy when I set him down on the exam table, he crawled back and forth and tore that paper up like mad. Three hours of being confined to his stroller was enough!

Surgery is still scheduled for Thursday and I am sure we will have to be there at the wee hours of 6:00 AM. Some of you didn't know I was alive at that time (neither did I).

Asthma


Why does Evan's asthma start to act up when I am already worried about something. The school called while I was down at Caden's pre-op and he was coughing alot. The treated him, I showed up at Jodi's to get him, we stayed for dinner and by the end he was couging so much he was making himself sick. We did a breathing treatment and he seems okay right now- lets see how many times he wakes up tonight!
Last time he had major flare up was right after Caden was born and in the NICU down at UCSF. Not to mention he was leaving for his dream vacation two days later.

Surgery


Thursday April 3rd Caden will have his surgery. We are not sure of all that will be done except she is going to work on his lip and possibly his palate. They have some new procedures from when Evan was a baby and don't do things the same. It is possible they will one close 1 2/ of is lip now and then the other side a few months down the road. It would be great if they could do his lip and palate at the same time. I am worried about him but know that God is taking care of him.

New to this

Machelle has been bugging me to start a blog. I tried signing up and apparently I already created one. So this will be a place I will blog and see how I like it.

Let me know what you think.
