There’s nothing harder than letting your child be taken from your arms… knowing that his heart will be temporarily stopped… all in the effort of saving his life.
That’s what I will be facing tomorrow.
Needless to say, I’ve run out of chocolate. I ate an entire box this week in anticipation for his surgery. In addition, the chocolate did absolutely nothing for my stress. But my hips look like they’re loved.
I posted a poll to our Facebook page, asking people how much they think the *total* cost would be for Eric’s care (from BIRTH till after he’s brought home from this next surgery). Only my blog viewers will get a helpful tip: The total cost of JUST BOARDING from the last surgery was $1.25… MILLION dollars. Not including birth, not including surgery, not including ANYTHING– JUST boarding.
My prediction for total costs? $4 million.
