And then there were five------

In five days I will be at the hospital getting my surgery....It's going by so quickly.

We told the kids a couple days ago -- it went like this:

Me: Mommy's going to have surgery next week.
I and J: Why?
Me: To help me lose weight.
J: That's cool, I need a permission slip signed so I can go to a picnic at school.
I: Can you make me a lunch before you leave for the hospital?

And then it was life as usual.

But they're 12 and 9, they've never had to worry about anything. I'm the worrier and that's why I kept this from them until it was almost time for the surgery because I wanted to keep them from worrying too much.  Not sure if it's because they're boys? or if they've had such a stable upbringing? or it's just not in their nature to worry?  Must be nice!

I think I'm going to go with, it's their upbringing and pat myself on the back.

Less than a week.



  1. I can remember my 'what iffer' going in to overdrive for that last week!! I am so excited for you!!

    I agree, it's because you did such a great job raising your boys.

  2. Kids are kids. LOL. I think they're too self involved to really think about what other people might be going through. I think they outgrow it by age 25 or so. :)

  3. lol! I did not tell my 4 yr old until day of surgery and I just said I had a doctor appt. I didn't want him to worry. So close----yay!!

  4. How exciting! :) 5 days until a FRESH START.
