Rinse, Lather, Repeat…Ugh!

It's snowing, and as such our kids have their first official snow day of the school year.  They had a two hour delay yesterday, but that doesn't count according to Jack.

Snow is not wheelchair accessible…just saying.

When I heard the weather report last night I didn't want to believe it.  They predicted Sunday's storm incorrectly…less than an inch turned out to be almost a foot of the white stuff.

This morning I had a bit of a panic attack when I looked out the window after receiving a call from the school district at 5:30am alerting us that school was canceled.   You see, Lucy is scheduled today to have surgery to replace her cholecystostomy tube…again.  Yes, you read that correctly!  Rinse, lather, repeat…ugh!  Less than twenty-four hours from the placement of her tube on Friday night this tube came out because it was not sutured in place.

Not only did I have to pack and prep Lucy to get to the hospital by 11am, I had to find a place for the kids to hang for the day.  Never-a-dull-moment in our life e-v-e-r!

So very very thankful for amazing friends.  The kids packed up all of their snow clothes, sleds, and a few snacks and were on their way to frolic and play, while I prepped and and primed IV bags and meds  to take our girl to the hospital for the day.

After discussing the ins and outs (pun totally intended) of how we are going to keep this tube inside of Lucy, we kissed our girl good night at 12:45pm and left her in the the very capable hands of our IR team and surgeon.  The plan for Lucy is to suture the heck out of this tube…really!

Your thoughts and prayers, love and support are greatly appreciated.
