Well, the Saint-Onge’s are prepping for tomorrow. Things are starting to fall into place with a few minor glitches. Nothing we can’t handle.
Tomorrow we will all make the trek down to VGH for Ben’s surgery. We have to phone later today to find out what time the surgery will be. We are hoping for earlier rather then later, as Zak was contacted for a University interview that has been scheduled for 3:15pm. He was rather devastated to discover the conflict, but we told him that of course he must be there. Life goes on, right?
So hopefully the surgery is in the morning and then we can bring him back for his interview, which he will nail, of course! That was minor glitch number 1, but it’s straightened out now.
Minor glitch number 2 was Jaime discovering that she had made an error in her work schedule, and she works at 4 pm tomorrow. Poor kid was horrified and scrambling to get that changed, but given that Zak has to be back at 3:15 anyway, she’s now going to come back for her shift and then I’ll bring her back to Vancouver afterwards to spend the night. So that all worked out too.
Minor glitch number 3 is that Jaime suddenly and unexpectedly hurt her neck last night. One minute everything was fine, and the next minute she was in horrible pain. (I know that feeling. Poor kid). It could be due to the fact that she did this yesterday:
Anyway, she is currently in quite a bit of pain and unable to move. She is laying on an ice pack, and can’t even take an Advil due to her allergy cleanse. More about that later.
When we were at the hospital on Friday we had the anesthetist check the results of Ben’s PET scan. He said there was no negative change since the CT scan…whew!!!! As mentioned, I hadn’t wanted the results of the PET scan, but when faced with the fact that the Dr sitting in his office right in front of me knew the results, I just couldn’t resist. I had to ask. I was so relieved by what he said.
So today we are all together as a family, with plans to go shopping for a suit for Zak (grad gift) and just enjoying each other’s company before our little world gets shaken up again. Fingers crossed that Jaime’s neck issues work themselves out. Honestly I probably would have taken her up to the hospital for an X-ray (she is in that much pain) if it wasn’t for the fact that we will be there all day tomorrow anyway.
I’ll leave you all with this thought that I am working hard to focus on each day:
