Caroline was released from Children's this morning and is on her way home! Thank you all for your thoughts and prayers and thank you Uncle Harold and Aunt Wynn for taking care of Parker while we were away.

Mama is extra sleepy, and the nurse tonight needs to be watched. I'll post more tomorrow when my brain is functioning a little better.

Matthew and I decided that lunch was a priority after Caroline was taken back for surgery. While we sat eating our lunch, you'll never believe who we saw. Caroline's surgeon! I know he has to eat, too. But I was so shocked to see him in the cafeteria...instead of the OR. Matthew and I just looked at each other like "are you seeing this?" Let's hope that some bum isn't in the OR.

While the hits just keep on coming, the one constant, looming always somewhere near is Caroline's Glenn. She and I are leaving before the sun rises on Monday morning to make it to Children's for her pre-op appointment. I was told that this "appointment" could take up to 8 hours. After being subjected to every test known to man, Caroline gets to go stay at the Washington D.C. Ronald McDonald house with me. I am stressing about this because like any home away from home, I have a hard time controlling germs and contact with anything that could potentially get her sick. Catching something that close to surgery would make her recovery much harder, so I'm planning on being "that Mom" with a full tub of Clorox wipes and a suitcase of our own sheets and blankets. Please pray that Caroline has no complications, and that we are able to get in and out without any major hiccups.
