That one Father's Day we spent in a hospital.Monday, June 18, 2012
It has been an adventurous few days around our house. Max went to the ER over the weekend, and was admitted to the hospital for a painful and rapidly-growing abscess on a...um...sensitive part of his body. They took him to surgery a day later to remove the abscess, and have been monitoring it since. The Doc's were concerned it was related to a serious infection, so they had been waiting to get the cultures back to find out. Found out he has a staph infection, and is being treated accordingly, so as long as everything goes well tonight, he'll be coming home in the next day or so.
It has been a long few days. He was by himself for the first 12 hours in the hospital, until I could go be with him (and good friends watched the kids), and was just a little bit chatty after being alone that long! I spent most of the afternoon on Father's Day, in the hospital, waiting for the surgery and hanging out him afterwards. What a happy Father's day for him, huh?!
I had my own Doc appt today (just a baby #3 check) and took the kids along, so we could go see Daddy afterwards. They were really excited to see him, and I could tell it made his day as well. All afternoon yesterday, he kept telling me how much he missed the kids. I'm glad they were able to spend a little time with him today.
Although it's been a slightly exhausting few days, I am thankful everything has gone smoothly and nothing terribly serious was wrong. Just praying for a quick healing and that he is able to come home soon. I would much rather him be here, laying around, than in the hospital where I can't be with him all the time! Oh what adventures we seem to get ourselves into!
