pacemaker update

We FINALLY got some dates for Pablo's bladder pacemaker surgery. I pluralized dates because they are making Pablo go to Toronto this Friday for his pre-op appointment. God forbid they do it over the phone or some other way. AND they gave him a 9am appointment which means another overnight stay. It's about a 5 hour drive from our place to Toronto so not worth leaving at 3 am. We're going to make it a family trip so all four of us are going and we'll take them to the zoo or something. Isabella starts grade 1 on Tuesday (OMG I still can't believe it) so a good way to end summer break. Not looking forward to the drive there and back in two days with two small kids but hopefully they'll sleep lots and we'll have fun while we're there.

Surgery has been scheduled for September 13. It's a day surgery but yet again, is going to require Pablo to be in Toronto on the 12th. Can you imagine, bladder pacemaker surgery is a day surgery?!?! Let's hope the damn thing works or else back to Toronto we go...

On a completely unrelated note, since this coming weekend is a long weekend, I am going to paint Isabella's room. I am excited because it needs some sprucing up to match her new Ikea Kura loft bed. Stay tuned for photos.


  1. Ay yi yi! All that running back and forth. Hopefully it will all be worth it.

    I can't wait to see what you do with Isabella's room! Have fun!

  2. So we get to Toronto on Thursday and we planned on going to the Toronto Zoo on Friday. At around 4pm Thursday, the hospital calls and said the app't was moved to Friday at 1pm instead of 9am. ?!?!?!?!??! We begged these people for an afternoon app't so that we wouldn't have to stay overnight and then they screw up our plans by changing the time at the last minute. We were SOOOOO angry. The app't was over around 2 and we raced over to the zoo right after. Drove the 5 hours home after the zoo - got home at 10:30pm. LONG TWO DAYS.

    Posting Isabella's room tomorrow. That was another two LONG days...but well worth it.
