We are here at the Ronald McDonald House. We got a call yesterday afternoon saying that they had a room for us. So we packed up last night, finished this morning and headed down here first thing. We have already played in all of the fun areas and are about to walk by the river. We are in room 138. It is a great relief to know we have a room and will not have to worry about that. I had called Friday and they had no rooms and no expected departures. God answered our prayers and took that burden away from us.
Tomorrow is Jaden's echo and I think they will be doing all of his lab work, x-rays and we will meet with the cardiologist here. Tuesday we have to be to the hospital by 6:30 am and Jaden will have a cath. done. We will be on the 5th floor in a room until they feel he is ok to leave. If he has any bleeding from it he may have to spend the night. Let's pray for no problems. I do not want to have to spend the night there just yet. If all is well, we will go in for surgery Thursday morning. I will start updating daily or as often as I can to continue to let you all know the status with him.
Sal, the kids and Lana (our nanny) will be coming back and forth this week and then will stay Wednesday night until Sunday night. The kids are already off the walls and being very naughty. They definitely are being affected by the stress we are all feeling. It is already difficult and Sal and I have had to stop for quite a few hugs today. We are trying very hard to be positive and calm. Outwardly we are but the kids can feel our inward emotions.
So we are off to enjoy the river. Hope you all had a great weekend.
