My parents got here this afternoon. My moms room is set up and she has begun unpacking. My dad will be here at least a week and my mom around 8 wks.
I did my last grocery trip. I cleaned house a bit. I made my final to-do list.
My neurosurgery is in less than 38hrs.
Tomorrow Eli and I get lab work in the morning. Ari has elimination clinc. I meet with the neuro-opthamologist to check my intracranial pressure, and I spend some time with my family.
My nerves have fully kicked in. I'm fidgetty and anxious and feel like crap. I want to go to bed and sleep until my surgery AND I want to stay awake the whole time spending as much time as possible with my family.
I just want this to all be over with, all be a distant memory.
Right now this all seems larger than life and scary and unimaginably hard. I long for the day where things settle and life calms down. Where we can breath easily, not constantly worrying about the next thing.
I will do my best to get a blog up tomorrow as well.
Bob will post updates as he has them.
Here is the mealtrain link for those wanting to help out with meals.

I thank you and so does my family!
