- My husband's peritoneal tube sprung a leak about two weeks ago, and he needs surgery to change it. Surgery is finally scheduled for Monday.
- Meanwhile he has been on hemodialysis three times a week, so he has been driving up to the states and back . . three times a week so that he could continue to work on the projects he's got going here.
- At the same time his hips started to really really hurt him and after an X-ray and visit with the orthopedic doctor we find that he has an old fracture on the left side but what what hurting him is actually tendinitis of the hips.
OK, all this has been complicated by our vehicles which are reduced by one since our 4-runner (the work car) clutch isn't working. This has forced me at times to climb half way up the mountain of which we are at the foot of, with my three kids in tow, to take my daughter to school and back. I still am hurting.
So today we go state side, baby has a doctor's appointment on Saturday, and a missions meeting. We'll drive back Saturday evening and I interpret worship on Sunday in Ensenada, then Sunday night we are back up state side to prep my hubby for surgery.
His surgery is in the pre-sun morning hours. I'll drive him to and back from the hospital, then Tuesday morning I will drive him to his pre-sun hemodialisis session and back again from the clinic and then I come home to Ensenada with the kids, while hubby stays state side to recover. At some point we will be going back up to get him, but that is not worked out yet.
Are you dizzy yet?
So now my challenge is, before I pack for everyone, I need to see if I can farm my kids out to their uncles or somehow arrange for them to be with someone while I am driving my hubby to and fro from the different hospitals and clinics.
It is times like that I am so grateful for the people that open their homes to us in San Diego where we can make a second home state side. What a blessing!
