It's going to be a tough couple of weeks

I wish the Cloud weren't in such a foul mood today. Tomorrow we have to get up at 5-ish for an 8 AM appointment at the hospital, and then Wednesday he has an MRI, for which he needs to be sedated, for which he needs an empty stomach.

Then on 12/3 he gets an actual hospital stay, and all the other lovely things that go with surgery. There are lots of frustrating, silly, poignant, disgusting, and exhausting moments within his medical adventures, but I'm not writing about them here for reasons of privacy. I hope you all understand.

So. 5:00 AM! Are we ready?!?

(Uhhh.... no. We're a couple of grouches here. Grr.)


  1. I'll be thinking about you over the next few weeks. The MRI was a bit of an adventure since our Miss Maia turned into a holy terror under anesthesia:) Funny thing was that by 3pm that afternoon, she was outside running around and had all but forgotten those 2 missed IVs and the dozen swings she'd taken at the anesthesia team! These kids are amazingly resilient, and bounce back so quickly. HOping all goes well!

  2. You are in my thoughts and prayers. Hope it goes as well as possible.
