Well I just read a sweet comment from a friend and she said, "What's one more hurdle?" Well we are officially crossing that hurdle right now and it is a doozy.
Let me start from Thursday afternoon and fill you in on what's been going on. The eye doctor came to do a follow up check on Lindy. And guess what??? There is a problem and she needs more surgery on her right eye. A small area of her retina has started to detach itself. "How can this be?" we ask ourselves. The though of her having to go to surgery AGAIN is about more than I can handle. "So okay, lets do this" we tell ourselves. We'll all get through it.
AND then the other bomb drops. There is no one at Baptist who does this surgery, she has to go to Duke. So here we are, two days away from taking Will home and we are told our daughter has to go to Duke. Could the timing be worse??? I don't think so.
Then the chaos begins. Doctors talking to doctors about all the aspects of the surgery and the transport. And trying to figure out what in the world to do about Will. We got home late and packed up our stuff, expecting to go to Duke today. We get there this morning ready to meet with the doctors again and we ended up waiting most of the day for some news.
So the short of the story is that Lindy is supposed to be going to Duke on Sunday and having surgery on Monday (or possibly Tuesday). Will is going to stay put for now, until at least Monday. Having him safe and taken care of in the hospital will make it a little easier for us to go to Duke and be with Lindy for her surgery. If he can stay a little longer we might do that. If we have to bring him home then we will split our house. I'd stay home with Will and Drew would go to Durham with Lindy. We'd might switch off at some point. We really don't how long she will be at Duke though. She will definitely come back to Baptist.
I had visions of how it would be to bring home a baby from the hospital. I think it will be a big deal. Lots of pictures, video coverage, etc. Our first night with one of our babies was going to be special. And now Drew might not even be there. How much does that stink? Yet another experience we might get the short end of. Seems to be the way things work for us.........
We'll update when/if anything changes and when we know more information.
