My oh my has it been a crazy week and a half! I feel so guilty for not updating this site for awhile but I have been lost in my own little world. In August, my husband was selected for Chief and we had to make it through 6 weeks of induction. It was a crazy time for us. My husband was almost never home and when he was, he was busy completing CPO Selectee tasks or catching up on sleep. Throughout all of this, I was left handling three kids by myself. I had so many appointments scheduled during those 6 weeks that I felt like I was living in my car.
Last week was our final week of craziness!!! Thank you Jesus! My week started off with having an early birthday party for my oldest (she turned 13). We took the kids to an indoor trampoline park then treated them to some delicious cake & ice cream. On Tuesday, my in-laws finally made it to our house after a 24-hour drive from California. Then on Wednesday, my mom drove down from the DFW with my uncle and dad who had flown in from San Diego. I literally had every room in my house occupied with a family member! The next morning, we woke up early to take my 5-year-old son to the hospital for an tonsillectomy & adenoidectomy. Boy did the timing suck but we had no other option. My son was diagnosed with a mild case of sleep apnea, so we pushed for this surgery to be done ASAP! After my son's surgery (which I told was a fairly simple surgery), his little body was so relaxed that he had a hard time waking up and his tongue kept falling to the back of his mouth. When I was finally able to see him in recovery, I couldn't help but cry. He looked so helpless...my heart broke. The doctors were concerned about his breathing so they admitted him into the Pediatrics ICU. Our plans for attending my husband's pinning ceremony went out the window! My son & I stayed in ICU overnight and were not discharged until 10:30 am Friday morning. Luckily, my family (including my 2 girls) were able to attend my husband's ceremony.
It may be hard to believe but the craziness didn't stop there! Honestly, it's just entirely too much to type. LOL. The most important part is that my son is doing well now and I have my husband back at home. :) God is good!
