Quarantine: Day 12 (The One Where Chase's Surgery Date Changes)

What a day! I'll start with the most obvious point of interest: we got a call today that Chase's Fontan needed to be moved to accommodate a more critical surgery. It's only going to shift by two days, and our preferred surgeon is still performing the operation, but he will be away (not on call) for several days following Chase's Fontan. That doesn't give us a warm & fuzzy, but we've got to go with it because the only other option was JUNE, which obviously isn't very conducive to the plans and details we already have in place. My thoughts and prayers are with the family whose child is in urgent need of Chase's original surgery time slot.

So whew! That's gonna take some adjusting to, but I'd guess we just adjust our entire game plan by two days and just hope and pray that it doesn't get moved again!

Today was a pretty busy day for me. E had his 1-year checkup, which of course meant I fed him his first PB&J while we waited. You know, so if he does happen to be allergic to peanuts, we'd be in the right place to care for him.



But he passed with flying colors while scarfing down half a sandwich not long after he had eaten breakfast! All was well with his checkup.




Two vaccinations and one finger stick for a CBC later, and we were on our way!

After dropping him at home, I then went straight to LO's school to see her prized Subway lunch reward in action. She chose her (boy)friend (?!!!) celebrate with her. She was surprised that I came to join them for lunch, and she told me about the many other surprises she had that morning, including getting to celebrate her summer birthday today with her friends. She wore a pretty pink dress for her last day at school.



After lunch with LO, I came home for a bit before it was time to head back to the school as a Computer Lab volunteer with her class. She insisted I take of picture of her with her (boy)friend.







After Computer Lab I made sure all of her library books were returned, filled out her withdrawal papers, grabbed my girl and made a run for it! Haha! She was pretty happy about her last day. I'm glad she was so positive about it.

While I had planned to spend the afternoon packing, I now find myself chilling with my iPhone while the boys are napping, writing this post instead. I don't imagine there are any big plans tonight, but if anything spectacular happens, I'll be sure to mention it in tomorrow's quarantine update.

Thanks for your continued thoughts and prayers!
