update

I decided it was probably time I posted again. Hazel's surgery that was supposed to happen on Monday was postponed a week. After what feels like the longest week of my life, it's almost Monday again. I have been a total wreck the past two weeks. The anticipation has been much worse than I expected. My poor family is taking the brunt of my mood swings. Today my mom and I went to the hospital to redo her lab work. My mom ended up sitting with her because I hate watching my kids have their blood drawn. I was glad she did because they ended up needing two people to hold her and one person to draw the blood from her head (they couldn't find a vein in her arm.) She's a trooper. I'm dreading Monday but I'm glad to have this finally over with.

It's so hard to see your kids in pain. I'm so sorry. Hang in there. You're doing great. It'll be over before you know it.

Babies and doctors do not mix well sometimes. When Caralie was a baby she associated the crinkly paper on the exam table with shots and cried as soon as I set her down. But she survived and is alive and well today! It's so, so hard when they are little, but they will be okay.

We have you guys in our prayers.

And my word verification is "calming" - how's that for reassurance? :o)

I love you guys. You are great parents and I know this must be so hard. I hope everything's going ok today. You're in my prayers (so are your doctors and nurses!).

I wish I could drop the Holy Cow and come be with you! Hang in there.
Love you guys.
