In Which I Will Be Looking In The Rear View Mirror All Day

Called up to see the latest word on Jer this morning, and the doctor was in with him. So he's going to call me back.

Apparently Jer lost a little too much blood yesterday morning when they did the dressing change, so he needed a blood transfusion last night, which is why he couldn't get on a plane. Hopefully if nothing untoward happens he'll be heading home tomorrow. Keep your fingers crossed, people.

I haven't been setting an alarm for the last few days, as there's no point-- I'm up (or still up, depending on whether or not Jer is supposed to be home the next day) by six anyway. Also my alarm is on my cell phone, so whenever it goes off that early I think that the doctors are calling because something is wrong. So I didn't set it last night, and of course this morning I slept in until nine.

You would think this would be a good thing, except Connor has to have his seizure medication by 7:00. I will now be totally paranoid all day, as we'll be making a couple of long drives running errands and I have absolutely no wish to experience another Notorious Incident like the one back in July. We have enough on our plates without adding more mouth-to-mouth resuscitation, thank you very much.

I'm taking Connor in this morning to have his g-tube replaced a little early. That way I won't have to worry about it for another four months or so. Hopefully by then I'll have heard from Jer and I'll be able to give you an update!

we're still praying for you guys. Happy Belated Birthday and I hope your BEST BIRTHDAY GIFT EVER (Jeremy coming home of course) gets there soon.

You probably really, really needed that sleep!
I'll add "no seizure for Connor, please" to the prayer requests.

Goodness gracious- I never thought about the timing of seizure medication. Here's a few prayers for a completely seizure free day.
