On Monday Steven, Nicholas and Charlotte traveled to Baltimore for Nicks visit with Dr. Standard. I stayed home for 2 reasons… Baby Elizabeth Eileen is MISERABLE in the car and Christopher is having some serious success potty training and I figured a few hour in the car would not be helpful. So I had to wait by the phone for the news that….
Nicholas’ knee has improved on it’s own. In about 3 months he will go back to Dr. Standard and schedule a much simpler knee surgery than we had been planning on. Only one night in the hospital as opposed to 4! Small incisions as opposed to a large one!! And the eight plate will come out at the same time. One less surgery altogether as well! Really really amazing news. I am now praying that it stays this way but I will try to just be happy.
I almost had not realized that he had not complained about knee pain in a long time. When things are going good it is easy not to notice. Really we are all just so happy. Surgery is surgery and kinda stinks but really this is so much less scary to me now. So much easier to plan for the other kids too. Being away for days with a nursing baby is next to impossible and we need to be able to focus on Nicholas while we are there.
As much as I was a little sad to have to stay home… I was overjoyed at the news. Maybe I should stay home more often : )
