Mark goes to get his stent out on Thursday. Which is good news because it has become increasingly painful for him. He is actually in more pain npw and able to do much less then the first week after they put it in!? So we are looking forward to having it out and getting on with things.
The procedure is only like 20 minutes or so but it still ends up being a long day because he still has to go under general anesthisa and all that. That makes pre-op take a while and then in recovery they want to see you eat and go potty and all that good stuff. So I'm guessing it will be like a 6-8 hour day.
Mark would like me to go with him so I can hear what the doctor says. The doctors always come and talk to you when you are way to drugged up to remember any of it. Mark would also perfer me there because even though it is unlikely there is always a chance something can go wrong when they put you under. I would like to go with him because it seems wrong for him to have to be there alone! Also I want to hear what the Doctor says too!
However, I really have no one to watch Malachy at this point. With Kim working I have had to rely on Crystal a lot more and I don't feel like I can ask her again. Mom and Dad haven't been feeling up to spending that kind of time with Malachy either. So I'm not really sure what to do.
If anyone knows of some reliable babysitters that I can look into for this Thursday please let me know.
