Are you surprised that I'm on here again? Here is the thing. I am tired. Everyday I think I'm going to write a blog, because I really do love it, but then the evening comes and I sit on the couch, our laptop is dead and I don't want to get up and go down to the office to write a blog so it just doesn't happen. (Three boys people!!!) The truth of it though is that starting this week the updates are going to be quite regular, and this is a guarantee!
Cameron is having his open heart surgery in less than a week!!!! I can't believe that I can finally say that now. I want to remember what every moment feels like and I want to be able to share it with others. I want our loved ones to have a place where they can get detailed updates on what is happening, and this is the perfect way to do it. I will also be alone in Edmonton for most of the time so I will be able to update a lot more frequently.
So where we stand now is ...
Cameron is scheduled to have surgery on Tuesday March 26. Our fun will officially begin on Saturday March 23. We are taking a gamble and flying my mom up this Saturday to be with the older boys while we are in Edmonton with Cameron. Sunday afternoon Justin and I will drive our sweet little one to Edmonton and we will have a full pre-op day (5-6 hours) on Monday. AND THEN......
If all goes well Cameron will have his surgery some time on the 26. There is still a chance that it could be cancelled and we are praying that wont happen.
This is the first week since Cameron joined our family that I can say I am feeling very anxious about what is going to happen. I cry very easily and I truly believe it is because my emotions are ranging from relief, joy, excitement, and pure terror. I am trying desperately to get everything in order so I have less worry about the house, the older boys, and everything else in my life while I am busy worrying about Cameron's surgery and recovery. I know he needs this surgery to survive and I am so happy that it is finally happening and my baby is going to have the chance to be healthy, but it is a HUGE surgery and I worry for his safety.
In any case come here for updates, and please pray for our family.
I found a YouTube video of an actual AVSD repair, which is what our sweet boy will have done next week. It is not scary to watch, but fairly informative. And don't forget to click on the link I have on my blog that will take you to my Instagram where you can see some of our daily activities.
