Headed to the Hospital

I won't have time to continue my last post today--I know, I know--HOW disappointing. I'm not sure it's worth waiting for. I didn't intend to make it a 2-parter. I just talk a lot.

Today my 4 year old niece will be having surgery so I'm headed to the hospital with my sister and mom this morning. This is the niece we affectionately call "Moose" because of her ever-so-dainty size. She was born with a large cyst on one of her ovaries which was removed right after she was born. It was like a pound or something like that! On the same side of the body where the cyst formed, her kidney is smaller (but healthy) and also she has one too many ureters. This keeps causing infections so today they will fix that. It's not a long surgery, but she will be in the hospital for a few days.

We will be keeping her older sister (almost 8) during this time so my girls are very excited to have their cousin for a few days. I may require a lot of caffeine this week!


I don't get to talk to a lot of actual grown-ups during the day, so your comments make me really happy! :)
