Drive-By Posting

Real quick. Not much time.

Andrew had a random fever for five days and missed the first night of AWANA at church, where he was supposed to start Cubbies.

He also missed his first day of preschool on Tuesday.

I thought perhaps Benjamin caught the virus, but I am 99% sure he is just running a fever and is slightly snotty because he is cutting yet another huge molar. He has been waking up at 5:30 each morning and crying. But thankfully Motrin and Mommy have been able to soothe him back to sleep for about an hour, when he wakes up his happy self.

So I took Andrew this morning for his first day of preschool. It wasn't really hard to leave him. Maybe because it's only twice a week for five hours (Tu/Th, 9-2), or maybe it's because I had things to do today, and it was tons easier without him. Or maybe it's because he was sick this past week and was driving me nuts a bit of a handful.

Either way, after I took him to preschool, Benjamin and I headed downtown, picked up Matthew, and went to Children's to see Dr. Smith, his surgeon.

Long story short (too late), he is going to have surgery TOMORROW! (It's not a critical problem; it just happened to work into everyone's schedule.) He will have two procedures done, and we will only be there for the day. The procedures are a hypospadias repair (he has a secondary urinary opening) and a ventral hernia repair (there is a slight hernia--it looks like a raised button under his skin when he gets mad or cries--under where one of his chest tubes was on his stomach after his heart surgery).

I am still not sure what time the surgery is; I am waiting to hear back about that.

Matthew has had to work a LOT lately b/c this is just a really busy week for him. He didn't even come home one night and worked until 1:30 p.m. the next day. I made him go to my mom's house and sleep in her Sleep Cave (her cool, dark, den) so we wouldn't disturb him. So because he's going to come with Baby B and me to the hospital tomorrow (my mom is watching Andrew, who will be over-the-moon with excitement when he finds out), he will have to probably work really late tonight, too. Poor guy.

ANYWAY....time to go get Andrew from preschool. I am so excited to see him and hear all about it! Maybe he'll even take a quick nap when he gets home. We'll see...
