the weekend of change

It all started on Friday. What we thought was a routine end of the week, turned out to be a worrisome one for the whole family.

My FIL had surgery today to remove stones in his bladder.

I don't even know where to begin. It just happened all of a sudden. When we went home from PIL's after dinner on Friday, he was fine but on Saturday morning, MIL called and told us to get him checked out at the hospital. Hubby did. That was on Saturday and today, he had his op. Thankfully, the surgery went well. No complications whatsoever. It was meant to be a minor medical procedure but because of his age, it didn't come out as one. It took the docs more than 2 hours to get it done. Of course, they also had to shave off part of his enlarged prostate which was blocking his urinary tract causing the stones. But still, it felt like such a long time.

I just feel so much for hubby. He has to be strong for both his mom and his dad. He's doing a fantastic job thus far. If it was me, I would've collapsed on my Moen kitchen faucets. I've had to deal with the kids while he's been away tending to his parents and only coming home at night. I was able to sneak out for a while to visit my FIL this afternoon while my mom watched both girls. So, thank God for my parents; they have been a big big help to me the past weekend.

Gosh..I'm knackered...I'll have to continue this tomorrow.
