it's monday night, practically tuesday, and just a few nights left until we are headed back into the hospital. bo and i are getting very anxious, and we haven't had much sleep in the last few days. on the fun side, we've had lots of visitors to spend some time with orion before his big day. my brother anson and his son vincent came for the weekend, and orion had a blast! pictures to come. i really can't wait until we live closer to our family and orion can enjoy more regular time with his cousins. bo's family is on their way tomorrow. i'm not sure how long they are staying for, but i do know bo's mom wanted to stay through his surgery. there will be lots of family time, good food, good laughter, and happy playtime for orion!
the last week or so has been pretty rough. after orion got over his virus, he became very clingy and needy, and every night would wake up around 3am or so with lots of crying and sadness. the only thing that would cheer him up would be to browse the fridge?! but honestly, i was not up for hanging out in the cold kitchen with him looking at all the leftovers. eventually, after all the crying would wear him out, he would fall asleep. this would mess up the next day's schedule, and he has been like this for probably over a week now. i can't figure out what's going on in his head, but i really do hope it's a temporary phase! because mom and dad need sleep!!
not much else to report, except that we are still dreading surgery day. this will be a major surgery, something absolutely permanent that is irreversible. let's pray for a successful surgery with wisdom from doctors and strength for me and bo and wonderful support from our family and friends.
