The 13th is getting closer, and I'm getting a bit more fidgetty. I'm hoping that the forces that be will be kind enough not to test our strength just yet. I know the day will come when Mathieu will need a colectomy (have his colon removed), but I don't think I could handle it just yet... We'll just have to wait and see what happens Tuesday - ONE DAY AT A TIME! It's difficult to remember at times.
Mathieu was off school with a sore throat yesterday. I took him for a strep test, just in case. It hurt when he swallowed... And, because he will be under for his procedure, I wanted to ensure that he was okay. Well, the quick test was negative and we're waiting on the longer test to confirm this. He is still coughing quite a bit, so I will call the nurse Thursday or Friday to make sure I don't make him do a 48-hour prep for no reason...
This afternoon Mathieu and I went to the Children's Hospital for his pre-op tests. Although he hates getting blood tests, he was very brave. Unlike last year when I had to hold him down, there was no struggling or kicking this time around. I am very thankful for that.
Richard has been invited to try out for his football league's Elite team. They will practice from February on and will participate in a provincial tournament in July. Congratulations Rich! I'm sure your Dad would be very proud of you.
Thanks for your comments. A few people asked how I manage to do everything... I don't. The house is a mess. But, there's food, clean clothes and some clean dishes... Unfortunately, there are always a few dirty dishes in the sink. Those two boys of mine eat constantly...
Well, that's it for now. Let me know who's out there; send me a comment. I'd love to hear from you.
Take good care!
