Today is my birthday and so far so good :). I had some time to myself and to sleep while Gabe was at preschool. Scott took us out to lunch. I am making a pot roast for dinner.

Looking forward

I am looking forward to Scott coming home tomorrow. Which is a good day for him to come over since my Dad will have Gabe all day. I have a meeting at work at 8am. After the meeting I will go straight to OHSU to visit Scott whether he is coming home or not. I will stay there until we either come home together or it gets around 2pm. Tracy's baby shower is at 3pm in Oregon City.

I am desperately trying to clean house. But it seems like every time I make headway, the house looks dirty again. I did all the dishes, then we made salsa with the fresh veggies from our garden. That made a mess. Then we had bean and corn quesadillas for lunch. All while I was doing that, Gabe got all the blankets out again and put them on the living room floor and was playing with his legos. Then he got out a new foam art project and started that on the table I had just cleaned off. So now I have more dishes to do and chase Gabe around trying to make him clean up after himself. We are letting lunch settle now, but will be back at it in a few.

At 4pm we have a birthday party to go to as well. So I need to put the finishing touches on Maddie's gift.

I am super excited that Gabe has preschool meet and greet on Monday. Then he starts his first day on Tuesday. He is very excited as well. I work at the preschool 2 days this month and I am in charge of reorganizing the library.

I better get back to cleaning.


Gabe woke up without a stuffy nose this morning, so we went up to the hospital to visit Daddy. Scott looked tired today, he is not getting any sleep in the new room he is in. Hopefully they will move him asap. We made our concerns heard and they will work on it. I thought I just had morning allergies when we went up, but by the time we left my nose was so stuffed up and I believe I have a slight fever. I am not happy at all. I guess I got Gabe's cold. Not what I need right now. It is going to be a long day!

Man I feel awful!! i have a horrible cold. Gabe went to play at the neighbors house but only lasted an hour. He was not playing nicely, so he ran home. Now he has a million and one questions about everything and is driving me nuts. Grrrrrrrrrrrr


Gabe was crying in his sleep last night so I didn't get to bed until midnight. The humdifier seemed to help and he slept in until 7:20, which is much better than his usual 6:30am. His cold is stuffing him up pretty well so today is a movie, quiet time day. I am having trouble, as usual, getting chores done. I am tired. A little bit here and there and maybe I will get them done today.

Scott called to update. They are moving him out of ICU today and putting him on a solid diet. His pain level is tolerable. So good news there, although it is really nice in the ICU since you have one nurse per patient. They have been overally helpful!

Ok off to do something.


Scott is doing better, he took a couple walks today. They should be moving him out of ICU tomorrow. I am not sure how much I can see him this week since it would require a babysitter. And I know all of my friends are willing, it just doesn't seem like I would get quality time with him. I would be wondering if I was staying too long, or if Gabe was doing ok.

I was going to take Gabe up tomorrow, but he developed a cold at Gamma and Papa's. Bummer! I can't take him to the hospital when he is sick!!!

Off to bed!


So on Thursday Scott went into the ER at Willamette Falls and they finally found something. An abscess where they had sewn his small intestine. It was sad to see him in pain, but I am glad they finally had it. They ambulance d him to OHSU since he needed to be on IV's still. He meet with his surgical team he has been working with and they decided that he needed his pouch removed. Around 1pm yesterday went into surgery and it lasted about 2.5 hours. The Surgeon came out to reassure me that they had to take the pouch and it was the right decision. It had perforated near the sewn part and had caused an infection. It is all over with now! Scott was taken back to ICU since he had a fever, but by 10pm last night he was more coherent and feeling better. He is in some pain, but doing much better.

I am taking the morning to catch up on dishes and cleaning the living room. We left for the ER in the middle of dinner dishes and Gabe had just dumped over his toy bin. My house looks like someone robbed it. Gabe stayed with Margaret Thursday and Gamma and Papa on Friday night. The inlaws are taking Gabe to the Circus today as planned for his Birthday. So I will be up with Scott all afternoon. Scott should be in the hospital for 5-7 days now.

Off to clean so I can get out of here and go see Gabe before they leave for the circus!
