Busy Week

Thursday, July 23, 2009

It has been a bit busy, a little bit crazy, a little bit well of everything. It has gone oh so fast. I can hardly believe that it is Thursday already.

Monday was my 11 year old niece's surgery. She has had a few of them over the years to help correct a venous deformation/hemangioma on her face. She has been very brave through them. This time I was a bit more nervous. Maybe because last time she had one I was not a mom yet or because Princess had surgery last year and I was an absolute wreck over it- which ever it was I was nervous for her which made for a rough day on Monday because I was anxious over it.

It was successful but not as straight forward as anticipated. It bled more and she ended up needing to spend a few days in the PICU and receive extra units of blood. She had a follow up operation yesterday- and that went pretty well. She is still uncomfortable, in pain, and somewhat groggy- So thankfully she was released today. Hopefully she will have a smooth recovery.

The rest of the week the kids had swimming lessons that took up more time than I planned.

Of course- we ran out of toilet paper. How I missed that no idea- but we did. You'd think that I would have noticed.

I have a facial hemaangioma too. I am 28 now, but I have had 8 surgeries from the time I was 4-17. I am now looking for a new doctor to treat it. I live in Las Vegas, but I am looking for any doctors that specialize in this type of thing as there are none here. Could you send me the name of her doctor??

Thank you,
