Well the doctors have met and the consensus is that our little sunshine will be spreading his light at Primary's a bit sooner than we thought--think Tuesday. Yes, as in 5 days. I was a bit taken back when the surgeon's scheduling office called to say, "They are preparing to see McKay on Tuesday the 25th." She said it right out loud like it was any other day. I just kept saying, "That's so soon, it's just so soon."
In fact it's so soon that on our way to the MRI and echo tomorrow she asked me to stop by her office at the hospital and pick up the surgery packet that let's us know all the details about McKay's surgery plan --no time to mail it. All the better I guess...that means there's probably not enough time for me to find somewhere to hide him and make this all go away.
On the upside, recovery time is usually around two weeks for the Glenn, which means there is a truly good chance we will all be home for Christmas. How amazing will that be? So much to be thankful for, so, so much.
Today we must prepare for all that tomorrow brings. I am less concerned with the fact my three month old will celebrate that milestone in the hospital under sedation, the subject of machines that will map his tiny body, as I am that I have to stop feeding him a full 5 hours before the procedure. One does not come to look and grow like McKay by fasting...
