What She Wore: Wide-leg blue jean capris; my ubiquitous black strappy sandals; t-shirt from Florida that I got when I was about fourteen–it’s one of my favorites.
We’ve just returned from the hospital. Charlie is sleeping in his vibrating chair next to me. He required morphine the day of surgery and then just tylenol yesterday. Today, he’s had no pain killers at all–kids are so tough! Now that the pressure has been relieved, his soft spot has become a soft trough. Follow-up scans reveal good placement, so we’re looking pretty good so far. We’ll be back in six weeks to see if his ventricles have begun to shrunk. My mother-in-law conveniently had some random school holiday come up, so she was able to stay with me in the hospital and help out. All and all, I’d say the experience wasnt’ bad as far as hospital stays go. For now, we just watch and pray that there are no unexpected complications.
Thank you so much for the well-wishes and prayers. I am always so grateful.
PS: Sitting around the room gave me some great ideas for blogs: my MIL’s cat, the role of the stay-at-home mom, and the mean nurse who yelled at my mom. Let’s see if I can’t get them all down on paper.
