Today

I will be back sometime tonight with an update on my oldest son's heart surgery. It is called a catheter ablation, they go up thru an artery in his leg and laser off a node or the thick part of his ventricle. (Hope I explained that right.)

I am up and getting ready now while Matthew is sleeping. My mom is coming over to play w/ Matthew while we all go hang out at the hospital. We need to be at "patient waiting" by 11 am. As soon as the doctor is finished w/ his previous patient, he'll take Casey back. They say surgery can be 2 to 6 hours ... then he needs to hang out for several hours after because they are going up thru a main artery. We are expecting an easy fix.

*big sigh*

Here we go.

Have I ever told you all how much I hate/dread being in hospitals. It makes my heart sink just thinking of it. This is the same hospital that Matthew (Mike and I)spent three months in ~ gives me weird feelings.

I know what you mean with the hate and or dread of hospitals. I went to the VA hospital yesterday, and I was lucky to get a hold of my favorite doctor there to take care of business. Good luck today to your son and to you. Heading north to Utah, I will talk to you in a few days.

Hang in there sweetie, all will be fine. I have everything crossed that the procedure goes well and he comes out a new and improved Casey.

Thinking about you and Casey and sending good thoughts you way.

Hospitals would be okay ... except they are full of sick people.

This surgery is probably the easiest one he has had so far. Still, surgery is surgery and we will pray for you all.
