(This post was written Friday but never posted. I am too lazy to rewrite a current post and all the info is still the same. ) However, I am no longer grumpy but seem to be a little more nervous for the surgery than I was last week.

Yes, I am still frustrated. One may even say grumpy about the whole surgery ordeal. I am sick of house arrest (although we should be use to it), worried because K has already been off her baby aspirin for the 2 weeks in prep for the surgery and she needs to get back on it and concerned because as of July 1st she no longer has her secondary insurance. I guess at least we will still have the one insurance, that's a blessing. Shall we just end with the fact that I feel like I have some serious pregger hormones right now.

This morning his office called and let me know that we will not know until Monday when we can reschedule her. All the OR's are booked out and on Monday they are over capacity. Then her Doc is leaving town for 3 weeks. There is no other doctor that knows how to perform this surgery, so that is not an option.

The scheduler just called to let us know that the doc called the hospital and they will allow him to perform a late surgery on Monday night. He has a full day of appointments and will perform that evening. I guess they are over capacity, so who knows how smoothly this will go. I think my biggest concern is that at the end of the day the OR has been known to run hours behind and I have a 3 year old that does not understand the no eating/drinking for hours on end. That is why the little ones always get the first morning appointments available. I will be praying that things run close to 'on schedule' and that K will have patience and just not be hungry or thirsty that day. Easy enough, right?

Kaidence was sad that she did not get to go to the hospital and have a ride in the wagon. She also wanted to wear her new mermaid nightgown she got from Nanna and Papa to help celebrate her new Mermaid voice. What the heck, I had to unpack her suitcase anyhow, so she wore it proudly to bed last night.

My cute little Camden lost his first tooth yesterday (Thurs.) My baby boy is growing up. He was so excited. Part of me was sad because he had planned to stay at my parents house that night because of the surgery and I would miss seeing his excitement from the tooth fairy coming. I guess its how it goes. McCaden lost his first tooth the night Kaidence got her heart transplant. I wasn't even there for it. He spent the night at the neighbors and the tooth fairy paid him a visit there. Yes, I cried knowing that I missed it. Yes, I also had guilt. BUT, today they are with their Nanna and Papa at Boondocks having a great time and K and I are just hanging out at home watching Sprout Tv.

We will keep you posted on Monday. Good Luck to all our friends heading into procedures today up at the hospital. Wish we were there to visit with you over a scrumptious meal at 'The Rainbow.' Know that we are sending happy thoughts and prayers your way.

OH man! So much prep work and then the let down. Atleast Kaidence got to use her new jammies! to cute. Praying the surgery goes well tonight!!

Good luck tonight! I can see why an evening surgery would be completely undesirable for you guys. I hope that Kaidence magically decides that she is not hungry all afternoon and that everyone in the OR today behaves so you can get in on time! I also hope that this is a super fast stay with NO complications so that everything is covered by two insurances!! Good luck!

I am thinking about you guys! We are praying that all goes well. When you are out of house arrest, we need to have a playdate before the summer is over.
