The hits just keep coming.
My dad had shoulder surgery this week from a ruptured tendon that has been bothering him for a few months now.
On Wednesday we had to take Dan to the emergency room because he had what appeared to be a hernia. The ER dr. sent us home saying it wasn't. We had to see the urologist for Kellen on Thursday (who also needs surgery), and he confirmed that it was, in fact, a hernia. We saw the surgeon today, and because of the intense pain Dan is in and the fact that the hernia is getting harder to push back in, Dan needs surgery as soon as possible.
That would be tomorrow. Any good thoughts you could spare would be great. We don't expect any complications, but it's always nice to know that people are thinking of us as we go through these challenges.
I am learning to take each day as it comes and accept the challenges that are presented. As my step-mom said, "It would just be nice if the challenges would slow down a little bit."
