The weekend went really well in our house. Pretty much everyone is done with their colds. We even dared to go to the mall for a little bit to get the kids some winter gear (we found hand sanitizer in many locations around the mall and definitely used it each time we found it). Now we just have to keep the colds away for the next few weeks so that we don't have to reschedule surgery again.
There are only 38 days until Thanksgiving. There are 16 days until Jadens surgery. The average time of stay in the hospital after this surgery with no complications is 5-14 days. That leaves a window of 8-17 days leeway to not be stuck in the hospital for Thanksgiving. We spent Thanksgiving in the hospital 2 years ago. We also had a stay in the hospital 1 1/2 weeks before Christmas and then another time a few days after New Years. I think we have had enough holiday time in the hospital.
So we are working hard on keeping those pescky BUGS out of our house.
