5 Things: Our Hospital Day

5 Things: Our Hospital Day

Hi Friends! We have had so many of you checking up on us this week to see how Patrick’s procedure went on Monday. Well, we are happy to report that it went very well! Here are 5 little fun facts about how our day at the hospital went…

1. On Monday, Patrick went in to have a quick little procedure to implant a small heart monitor in his chest above his heart. It was scheduled for 8:00 am, which meant that we had to WAKE UP and leave the house earlier than we normally have to. This wasn’t the easiest of tasks because now that we are homeschooling, we have gotten accustomed to sleeping in a bit. And this time, we were bringing our kiddos with us. On top of an already early appointment, we decided to ahead and leave a little earlier that we typically would have since the hospital is a 30 min drive from our home, and we wanted to make sure we would make it on time because traffic can be somewhat of an issue in that area.

Hi Friends! I apologize for not giving all of you an update yesterday on how Patrick’s procedure went. Since it was scheduled EXTREMELY EARLY that morning, we had to be up for 4:30 am. And neither of us slept very well the night before. So, we were only running on a few hours of sleep. Once we returned home yesterday we were completely EXHAUSTED. Patrick slept off the rest of the anesthesia that was left in his system, and and I watched Christmas movies with our babies and took as nap for as long as they would let me. 😉 Although, I will say that I am very PROUD of them because they were unbelievably SWEET, QUIET, THOUGHTFUL, and WELL-BEHAVED while we were napping. Continue reading
