Busy Week

We've had a busy week with 2 trips to Children's Hospital for Tuba and 2 field trips to the pumpkin patch. I'm pooped! I'm ready to put on pj's and snuggle on the couch.
Tuba had a few seizures last weekend so we went down to the hospital for an appointment with his neurologist. They needed to check the battery in his VNS. We were all shocked to learn that the battery is DEAD. No wonder he had some seizures! They arranged for Tuba to have lab work and two x-rays right away. I unfortunately had all 5 kiddos with me. I'll spare you all the horrid details of the trip...including losing Busy Guy for about 3 minutes, and Mr. P and Busy Guy behaving terrible while I tried to talk to the Dr. Let me just say that it was a NIGHTMARE and I had to call my mom to come help me. She left work and came to rescue me. I could swear she rode in on a white horse:) Anyway, Tuba will have battery replacement surgery next Fri. The really bad part is that on Thurs. we have 2 pre-op appointments to go to....30 minutes away from home...and they are for 10:30 am and 2:00 pm. NICE! Oh well, I guess we will go to lunch and have some play time between appointments. The nice thing about the hospital is they do have lots of kid friendly things to do including a huge play room and outdoor park.


  1. Hi Becky! Jamie and I will be thinking about Tuba and sending good wishes his way this whole upcoming week.

    lots of love

  2. Haven't been blogging because life has been hectic, but I can SO commiserate with you! M oldest was hurt in soccer game this week, and at her follow-up I had 5 of my 7 with me. 2 of hem started wrestling over a book on the floor while I was trying to listen to the doctor... glad we can all laugh about it after the fact!

    I will keep Tuba (and you!) in my prayers.
