‘Twas the Night Before Surgery

‘Twas the night before surgery
and all through the house.
Not a creature was stirring
not even a mouse.

Ha!  Yeah right!

The kids were up an hour and a half past normal bedtime, and I have a feeling I won’t be able to sleep much tonight.

Tomorrow morning Charlotte will be having bilateral ureteral reimplantation surgery at the children’s hospital about an hour and a half away from here.

I have been told that we can expect to be away from her for about 3 – 3 1/2 hours while she’s being prepped and in surgery.  Then we will have about a three night hospital stay depending on how Charlotte’s recovery goes. 

But hopefully after this surgery Charlotte will be done with hospital stays and urinary tract and kidney infections.

So if you could, please say a prayer or send good thoughts our way.

I’ll try to post an update tomorrow night or Friday morning to let everyone know how surgery went.
