ready or not.

Izzy.

We visited with Dr. Herndon this week at Children’s… He answered questions about the upcoming surgery which is scheduled for next Friday.  We then had to go to be pre-admitted to the hospital.  Everything is set to go…

Some questions I asked:

Will she be in PICU?  answer: Hopefully not.  Because it is a long surgery they will decide if she needs to go to the PICU for closer observation following surgery, but the plan is to go to a regular room after surgery.

When will surgery begin … and end? answer: It will begin at approx. 8:30 a.m.  We have to get admitted at 6:30 a.m.  They are hoping to finish around 3 p.m.

Can I go back with her and be with her until she is asleep? answer: yes.  They will usually let one parent go back until they are asleep.

When will she be able to come home? answer: Probably Monday.

We spoke about incisions and different procedures that will be done.  It is a little overwhelming to hear all of the details…

So in one week the surgery will be over. 

Bailey.

Started his new job this week at Braums… and is working an extra night tonight.  The manager mentioned to him last night that he could work tonight if he wants and stay as late as he wants.  He decided to do it.  So he will have worked four nights this week.  He has stayed late every night.  I think he will like it more when he gets used to it.  He says he has no desire to eat ice cream after dishing it out all evening!  ha. 

Amanda.

Has been texting me grades this week.  She got an “A” on her spanish final, and is pretty sure she will have all A’s in calculus, personality, psychology and spanish!  She starts her new job as a makeup artist at Ulta Tuesday.  She starts zoology in a couple of weeks.  She moved out of the dorm today and her room is about waist high.  Lots of sorting to do.  She is back at OU tonight because she volunteered to help disabled students graduate. 

Emelia.

Emelia has had a busy school week… a choir concert last night, a field trip to a rope’s course today and skating tonight.  I think when she slows down just a little she will sleep for a long time! 

Matt and I watched Faith Like Potatoes last night.  It’s a good movie!  We watched Avatar tonight (I only saw part of it, but enough to get general idea 🙂 )…  It was pretty good.  Maybe better with 3D?
