Wish me luck!

Just a quick post for today since the kids are keeping me quite busy. I just thought that I'd say that I most likely won't be posting for a few days because I'm going in for surgery tomorrow morning. For those of you who don't know, I've got Ovarian Cysts that they found when I was pregnant with Rachel, but couldn't remove until after her birth. So, now it's time to take them out.

The good news is they've actually shrunk a bit since my last ultrasound in February. They're about 5cm (2in) each right now. Back then, one of them was over 7cm in diameter, so one stayed the same and one decreased by 2 cm! That's a pretty good result... At least they didn't grow!

Anyway, I'm in to the Chalmers Hospital tomorrow morning at 7:45am, which means I've got to get up around 5:30am to get ready and get out of the house by 6:30. Mom's keeping both kids tomorrow morning (Thanks Mom!) until I'm out of surgery, then Jason is driving back home and picking Rachel up to bring her up to the Hospital with me... They've said they'd give her "compassionate admittance" since I'm still nursing and have such a problem with my milk supply. Jason will be there with me during the day and she sleeps all night most of the time, so there won't be a whole lot of time that I'll be looking after her alone. Don't be worried about Olivia though, Janice is going to look after Olivia for the next day or so if I can't come home right away. (Thanks Jan!) There's no way we'd be able to have her up at the hospital all day without driving all of us crazy. lol.

Anyway, wish me luck with my operation, and I'll be writing again soon!
