Breathing again....

Pete is starting to look a million times better. He finally got to sleep and slept pretty well last night. I have to take the boys to a primary activity this morning so I only have a second.

I am feeling like I can breathe again. Not totally at ease that nothing else is going to happen because I know better, but it may feel like we can finally be getting through this.

The surgery made all the difference in the world. I can feel him coming back to me. He hasn't really been himself in such a long time. He has some mood swings, but all in all I am glad he is back. Its funny, he has started treating me like I am breakable, knowing all the things I have done in the last year. Friday he got Jackson ready for school so I could sleep. I missed that guy!

Pete's in surgery now and will be for the next couple hours. Waiting for mom to get here from Dev's. I don't know what I am feeling. A little scared and hopeful. I just want all this to be over.

Unexpected Blessings.

Be careful what you pray for.... I prayed that Pete would be out of pain and that we would be able to find a way to get him the help he needs.

We got to the emergency room yesterday and finally got the tests that he needed because it was an emergency. They did bloodwork, a CT, and an MRI. The blocked ventricle had gotten worse, The largest cyst had tripled in size. The neuro resident was amazed he hasn't seized yet.

I believe more than ever the Lord looks out for us. This happened in such a way as he didn't get to worse case before it was considered an emergency, but enough so that they want to operate today without worrying about the financial concerns up front. I am having a mixed reaction, but I know that this is probably the best way things could have happened.

I don't know when he is going into surgery but they have him in the Neuro Critical Care Unit at University Hospital. So they are keeping a pretty close eye on him and I have been able to stay with him. I am loving the fact I can get wifi to keep connected to the outside world.

Back to the Emergency Room...

Pete's head has been hurting a lot more in the last few days and his confusion is getting alarming. We emailed the doctor and he would like us in the emergency room today. I have some clothes to get washed so I can take them and then we are gone. Thoughts and prayers would be much appreciated thanks!

Some Randomness

Yay! My Vandals are no longer in the bottom teams in the nation. In fact they are ranked 50 which is better than they have done since I started school there. Yay and GO VANDALS! 2 more games until bowl eligible, but I am really trying hard not to get my hopes up.

Ethan has a game tonight.. I hope he does well, he should they are playing West J who hasn't won yet.

I love you all out there in the blogosphere. Hope you are all well!
