Still here

Not really running.

Trouble is having his surgery next week. I'm a basket of nerves about it. Its a minor in and out surgery but of course its still surgery. It doesn't help that when we went for a pre-op meeting with the anesthesiologist no one on the Ped's floor knew why we were there since they do the pre-op clinic on a different day and we weren't on the list for that. Plus he as apparently booked for the adult pre-op so we got sent back and forth and I was almost ready to cry since people kept expecting me to know what was going on. Bahh!

But they gave us the clinic thing 45 minutes later anyways. But we weren't there for that and had to go back the next day for the orginal meeting anyways. There was 5 kids including Trouble waiting to be seen and no one came for over 2 hours. Thankfully Hubby took him that time, cause I would have lost it. This was for kids that had other medical issues that they want to be careful about during surgery like Trouble's VSD (hole in his heart in layman terms) .

Next up is the pre-op check up with his regular Ped on Friday. So that will be the easy one. I tried running, but I'm going way to fast. I usually do around a 6 minute per km pace and I keep doing around a 5 minute pace. I couldn't even do 1km at that pace and I was worried about injurying myself so I'm allowing myself to take it easy and just do other things to focus my mind on. So the main floor of my house is really clean. Plus today since it was nice out the little boys and I went to the Zoo. If anyone knows about the BIG hill for the Canadian Domain, thats a workout in and of itself. We always go down there to see the land bison, its like a rule in our house.

Just another week and things go back to normal and calm down. whew.


  1. Wow, you've got a lot on your plate right now. I hope the surgery goes without a hitch and things get back to normal soon.

    Thinking of you.

  2. aww..poor guy. And poor you! I can't imagine how stressful it is. I hope the surgery goes well.
