Big day tomorrow

It will start at the crack of dawn. We'll arrive at the hospital around 6am, and surgery will start at 7:30-ish. The repair to his hip and the shortening of his right leg should last about 4-5 hours.

In the back of my mind, I have been anxious about this operation. Instead of packing for both of us, I've turned to sorting through Ellie's clothes. I haven't planned menus for the week or bought groceries, or even exactly planned out who will be taking care of the kids. I know all those things will work out and be okay without me having to micromanage it all.

I recognize that I'm in surgery denial. Maybe, because it was cancelled the last time, I have a hard time thinking it will actually happen tomorrow. Ty may need a unit of packed RBCs tomorrow so we went in to have a type and cross-match drawn today. Maybe it is going to happen after all. Sigh...

Surgery denial? Or maybe you're just used to it. Between Ty's stuff and your own, you're an old pro :D
I'll be thinking and praying for you and yours.

Thanks for filling us in. I caught some reference to the OR and was trying to figure it out. Best wishes tomorrow--you'll all be in my thoughts and prayers.
