Been gone all week...

This is what has been going on with us.

Sorry for linking and not posting it again, I'm being very lazy today - mainly out of exhaustion.

Oh Jenn, that is so scary! I hope he recovers quickly from the surgery. What a lot of stress to be going through right now.

You and your family will be in my thoughts and prayers. I can't imagine all of the emotions you must be feeling. Hugs!

Oh wow. I had no idea you were dealing with all of this. I hope Jus starts feeling better quickly. Did they give you any ideas on how he would feel after the surgery as far as the recovery process? I'm so glad your family has been around to help with Deacon and for support. I know how important that is during times like this. I'll be keeping you all in my prayers. :bigarmhug:

Thanks everyone! It has been crazy...you really realize how tough you can be when you need to be. Although I've had my moments in private when I just lose it.

Kayla - one of the original docs he saw said that it would be a 2 week recovery and his actual surgeon said a week. That was before they knew they were going to take the lymph nodes too so that may change the healing process?! I'm not sure.

I just saw in your siggy that your little girl has a name! Love it! What is her middle name? Do you know yet?

How are things? Are you going to work today?

Thank you! Kara Elliot is her full name.

Things are slowly getting better. I am going back to work today after an OB appt in a few minutes. I'm nervous about leaving dh by himself because every day he has had some new issue come up that worries us. I'm hoping to talk to my boss today and leave early and work from home tomorrow. I took Wed off and then we are closed thur and fri so hopefully he won't think it's a big deal.

I hope you're able to leave early today, Jenn. Just keep checking in on him - he should be fine. And your mom is home only a few blocks away, right?

Good luck with your OB appt today. I had my GBS test last week, I hate that stupid test, but it was over with quickly so it wasn't that bad! I'll be thinkin' about you! LOL!!

Hope everything goes well at the OB, Jenn. I'm sure Justin will be just fine at home, but I really hope your boss let's you take more time off to care for him.

Love Kara Elliot! Let us know how your appt goes today. I hope you can go home early and have the rest of the week at home. Continued thoughts with you guys. :bighug:

Oh, I love that name! I was just thinking how I love the name Charlie for a girl b/c I love boy/gender neutral names for girls. Elliot is a really cute middle name for a girl. Biggrin

So is he feeling better overall? I'm glad it's a short week and I hope you get some extra time off. I'm sure it's hard being away from him when you are concerned. I'll continue to keep you in my T&P's.

I also love her name. Smile Elliott was in our top three for Daphne.
Hopefully taking time off won't be an issue. I think taking care of an ill family member trumps just about everything and most people understand that.

I am so sorry to hear this. How scary! I pray that the rest of his recovery is smooth since he has been having issues. Sad

I know I posted on your BB, but I love that name. Very pretty!

Thank you everyone. I'm totally biased and love the name as well.

This morning before I left I went to tell Jus by and when he responded he had a tiny bit of a voice - more than the whisper he has had the last week. YAY! His whole demeanor changed and his face lit up when he heard it. Hopefully having alone time today and tomorrow with no talking with help it come back even faster.

That's so great to hear Jenn! Maybe having something positive happen, even if it was small, is what he needed to start feeling better.
