Tuesday and Wednesday are doctor days for us. Hubby is likely starting his procedure as you are reading this…I’m in the waiting room, hanging out and cross stitching.
Again the weather is not the best. We left Monday after I was done with childcare to try to beat the storm. We did. We were here in our hotel for about an hour before the storm hit in Lacrosse. Thankfully no driving in any snow. 10″ fell and it was a mess both at home and here in Lacrosse. We spent the late afternoon on Tuesday watching people shovel their cars out of the mess.
The early afternoon was filled with appointments…First blood work, then x-rays. After that we were off to talk finances and insurance. While on the third floor I saw this display.
I am not a knitter but I sure do love looking at it. What a bunch of talented knitters.
Next we were on to the pre-op physical. The doctor and the nurse were AWESOME. We asked lots and lots of questions. They were so good with us. I can’t say enough good things about our nurse Kim. Boy, a good nurse can really, really make a difference.
Today Hubby’s procedure is a little more in depth. They are doing a biopsy on the lymph nodes along his trachea. If all goes well, we’ll be heading back home early evening. If these come back clear, then surgery for the 19th. it sounds like he’ll be in the hospital for about five days….then off work for 5 weeks.
All of the family are trying to make plans for next week…but everything is on hold. We have to wait for the results of this biopsy. I think that’s one of the hardest things about all of this.
While I wait, I’m stitching on this.
Here I am in the hotel stitching…
The rest of the stitching will be done in the waiting room. I do a good job to keep myself busy.
A huge shout out to Kelli for manning the fort at home and taking care of the childcare kiddos. She’s doing a great job. She said the kids are being good for her too.
I’ll keep you posted. When I know more, I’ll let you known.
