With less than a week to go until Robert's surgery we are trying to prepare him for the event. Today we pulled out a new Dr.'s kit and have found some books to read. He is mostly excited because the girls have loaned him their favorite stuffed animals and Anna is even letting him use her mp3 player. He is also looking forward to ice cream on Friday after his pre-op.
Mommy, on the other hand, is not feeling so excited. I have been very relaxed about things until about last night when the stress of it all hit me. Unfortunately for the rest of the family I tend to get a little cranky when I am stressed. It will all be over soon enough and I can't help but think of the families that are watching their children suffer from cancer or other serious problems.
