I'm sorry I haven't been around...honestly I probably won't be much for a bit. There has been a lot of stress and today it all compounded. My dad was given bad news about his cancer. He's been fighting a loosing battle for 3 years and always state "just ahead" of the cancer. It looks like it may be back with a vengeance now. We will know more next week.
Then DH had had leg pain for a week or two. Turned out its a really bad infection. He woke up much worse today with it red/swollen/warm. I'm a nurse so I made him make an appointment with his doctor after his MRI (which was previously scheduled) and good thing because we were send immediately to the ER because of how bad it was and he was operated on at 7 to clean it out. He did well I surgery and is settled in the hospital room now, 14 hours after we left the house for the MRI. Hes diabetic and honestly wasn't monitoring it well enough and probably made this all worse.
And to top it all off today is my angels due date. I just want to scream or fall apart for a day and I can't because I have to be okay for DD while DH is in the hospital. And no one around even knows it was my due date. I'm just trying to stay calm for Luke's sake....I know babies can be affected by mommy being so stressed and I just want him to grow happily in mommys tummy.
I hope to be back soon to support all you wonderful ladies, and I'll keep checking in and doing a rare comment here and there. I just am so overwhelmed these days I need to concentrate on what's going on around me.
