We take Carter in tomorrow morning at 5:30 a.m. to the hospital to have tubes put in his ears and have his adenoids removed. I am filled with anxiety and trying to pack his bag. Not a good combination. It leads to me yelling at Mike for 1. not helping and then 2. helping and asking too many questions.
Instead of the outpatient center they are having us go to the hospital because of a blood thing in my family, low protein S. After a discussion with the anesthesiologist and our doctor they decided to move the surgery location and to admit him afterwards to monitor him more closely rather than releasing him right away like they normally do. So we are potentially in for a 23 hour hospital stay in the pediatric unit. Ultimately it is up to our doctor to release us when he feels that Carter is ok. We're hoping for the afternoon.
My mom came in this afternoon to take care of Owen so both Mike and I can be with Carter tomorrow. Lucky for us the hospital is just down the street and not in the medical center. Wish us luck.
