Tomorrow is the Day

At this time tomorrow, I will be getting ready to go to surgery. I am not as nervous as I thought I would be.

Scott has been in the hospital since August 3rd with a bad Crohn's disease flare-up. We thought he was going to end up with surgery but he made it. His small bowel was blocked from all the swelling. He is finally on a regular diet, and they are discontinuing his TPN (total parenteral nutrition) today. He had nothing by mouth for over a week. He may be discharged in time for my admission.

I was afraid Scott would have surgery and I wouldn't be able to care for him. He is determined to get well to care for me. We may disagree a lot but there are very few relationships as close as ours.

Bentley has finally given me a name. We tried to get him to say names we wanted but he just couldn't say them. Yesterday he started calling me Mammae (mam mae). It is wonderful for him to finally be saying "my name".

Sorry the video is sideways. I don't know how to flip it.
