Emotional Afternoon

August 27, 2008 8:22 pm

We had a mix up today, she was supposed to have a cat scan at 7 pm and around 4 pm they called to our nurse to get her ready for surgery! No one had talked to us and they didn't have the scan to even see what was going on. The doctors talked to one another but apparently forgot to include us in on the conversation. It wasn't even the doctor we thought would do the procedure so that was also very troubling.

Needless to say that made for some anxious moments for Danni and I but the surgeon came up to see Danni at the nurses request. He tried to pressure her a bit to go ahead and have the surgery, he said that it was a 2 minute deal and they wouldn't put her to sleep which further aggravated the situation. Who likes the idea of someone cutting on your body while you're awake!

She didn't have peace so she didn't have it today she will wait until tomorrow morning. The surgery will be to cut into the incision again and pull the end of the drain tube out of her abdomen so that it can drain into a bag on the outside. The idea is to take the water pressure off of it and let her system settle down so they can deal with the infection. She's down having her cat scan now.

Sorry if these are hard to follow, it's hard to concentrate with hospital stuff going on around me. Also, it's very hard for me to concentrate on a normal day let alone with everything else, but I'll do my best.

What an encouragement to me to see the states that are praying, Bless God! He's Awesome!

It can get overwhelming when your child is in a hospital and the doctors are saying one thing and you feel another, and decisions have to be made now, so that things can move along. I remember that about Riley in Indy when Matt was there at 3 months. They just bring so much at you at once your head spins. In moments like that we just have to take a deep breath, say a prayer and God will, as he always does, guide our steps through these stressful moments. Love you, hope today is better. Tell Danni we say hi and love her. Marianne
