Packing and Pandora's Box....

This is always one of the worst parts of surgery. Not the fact that I have to do 8 bazillion loads of laundry to get everything ready to go, but the packing to disperse my children to other family member while I leave to go to the hospital with another child. Tonight I am finishing up laundry and my heart is breaking. I am packing bags and realizing that it is going to be a week before I see Fayeth again and 6 days before I see Lindsay and Hannah. As much as they drive me insane at times, I love them so much the fact that I won't be able to see them for so long is breaking my heart. Now top that off with stress, pms and worry...and DAMMIT I AM A JOY!!! :)

Also the concern that we are opening Pandora's box is scary. After Gabe's decompression we opened that nasty little proverbial box.... Just in case you were undecided...Pandora is a BITCH! A BIG OLD NASTY BITCH!! We had decompression, chemical meningitis, papilledema, dx PTC, sight flair up of chemical meningitis, drain trial, reaction to flu vaccine, Shunt placement, OR for an LP on Christmas Eve and back to the OR for an LP on his birthday, Shunt revision. That was from June 27, 2007-February 20, 2007. ACK!

Darren and I both got a gift for Father's Day.... We showed my mom and my sister and the looks on their face said it all.



Please just pray that this was a fluke thing and we are not traveling down this road....again....
