An apple a day...

Keeps the doctor away! Maybe I should have eaten more apples. I am having surgery on Monday morning and I'm posting this so no one can say, "Why didn't you tell me?!" Okay, so I'm probably the only person to whine about not being told stuff, but I'm just covering all my bases.
Dan is going to be gone on Monday and the surgery is at the Moscow hospital. I admit, that is what I'm most nervous about. I'm not entirely sure where the hospital is, and I'm not entirely sure what my surgeons name is. I realize these are two rather important things to know, but I'm a little bitter about this whole thing. I'm also very nervous for my babysitter. Cole still won't take a bottle, and she'll have my kids until they let me come home. I feel really bad for her, but very much appreciate that she is willing to help me out!
I'm trying to explain to the kids what is going to happen, but they just don't get it...and they really shouldn't have to so there you go.
We are busy packing up everything, and it's really getting on my nerves. Nothing is clean and it's really annoying to me. The poor kids are bored because I packed up all their toys except for a few and so they are getting into things that they shouldn't, and that makeds me upset as well. Sigh, it will all be over in a week and a day...but who's keeping track?! :) But I'm determined to have everything packed up so when people come to help us move it is fast and slightly less painful than it could be. I'm really itching to deep clean, but I can't until I surface clean, and I can't until everything is packed up...and by then I'll not be in the mood to clean at all. I admit it is a weird state for me to be in in the first place.

First, will they let you drive home? If you're getting anesthetic, they may not... I'm sure you've thought of that.

BUT I am willing to drive you (I totally know where it is, it's easy to find, btw). I have no class and Aiden will be home so the kids will be fine.

Second, why don't you bring the kids over here while they are driving you nuts? Cole can come, too, and we'll just bring him back if we need to.

Third, I know you won't do it, but please let me help. In some way. I like you guys and I want to help. So does Aiden. I promise, we don't offer to help everyone and we're good at helping. Especially in the watching kids while other people do the harder work.

And Kember knows us. And Caden, he'd be fine since Kember would be there.

And we have different toys to play with.

I might just show up with dinner on a random night if you don't let me help in other ways. And dinner from me, not always what you want. ;)

So um, what kind of surgery is it? I think I will be making a phone call up your way tomorrow. I'd call now, but I'd hate to wake anyone up.

Surgery?! What kind? I wish I were closer so I could help. But I'll pray for you and the kids, since He's better at helping than I ever could be anyway.

Tarah, You will need someone to drive you home. They will let you go as soon as you wake up but they will not let you drive. Our prayers are with you as well. You have the best friends I have ever heard of. We love all of your friends for helping out and adopting you as their family and being there for you when we cannot!

Wa-Wa-What? Surgery? I had no idea you were sick! Oh Tarah, -- let me know how I can help (babysitting, meals, etc) or I'll just pester you :)

Andrea said...

Holy cow sister. I just talked to you and you forgot to mention this. I will call for details.

I hope all goes well. What a stressful time moving is, let alone add surgery to it.

I'm sorry! Good luck tomarrow. I too am curious about what kind of surgery. I'm sorry you're so stressed. Moving can't be easy with children and surgery is never fun either. Again, good luck!
