11 February 2009

Today was a follow up dr. appointment for Roy. Surgery is a definite go. Saturday and Sunday he can't eat any food, clear liquids only (water, black coffee, jello, clear soda, etc). Monday morning is the surgery. Doc feels that there is too much infection for laproscoptic (sp?) sugery, so it's going to have to be "large incision", manual operation. 7-10 days recovery.

What I am praying for, obviously a successful surgery, but we're worried that there may be too much infection right now for the doc to re-attach the colon once they remove the infected part. Which means him wearing a colostomy bag for 6 months. (Basically a bag for him to empty his bowels into.) So lets all pray for that to NOT happen. For sooo many reasons!!!!

Today we had our first Thunderstorm / tornado warning. The weather was warm but the wind was blowing like Wizzard of fact, I think I saw a little green witch riding around on a bike..then...all of a sudden the clouds opened up. I mean, it was like an ocean was falling down on us. In fact, the rain was so thick, I looked out the window and thought it was fog, but it was just a steady stream of driven rain. Amazing.

So tonight, my little boy who has been on this planet for two years and 3 months has informed me that he's not a baby, he's a big boy and as such, not only no longer requires a bath "like a baby", he's going to give himself a shower.

What's next? Shaving?'s the daily (which I've been remiss in doing)
