I was hoping to have news... BUT

no such luck.

I called Sloan this morning only to find out that there is STILL no final pathology report back! This is so frustrating. It has been just about 4 weeks since this whole thing started and we still have no answers or plan.

And then to add to the frustration, Mike's stitches were starting to absorb and his hair is starting to grow back in the spots that they had to shave for the surgery so he was itchy. As he went to scratch I said, 'Mike no hair' but before I could get it out, there was blood. He ended up scratching out 2 stitches! Thankfully, I was able to get the nurse at Sloan on the phone and they said that since the stitches have been in there for 2 weeks and that his head wasn't bleeding it would be ok.

Katie had her school book fair today. My aunt came over to stay w/ Mike so I could go since parents were able to meet the kids there. By the time I left she was in tears b/c she wanted to come home with me. She was crying last night b/c she wants to go home with Daddy and Pugsley. I feel so bad that she is so confused and upset. I have been trying to do things with her to make her feel like all of the attention is not on Mike. I can't wait for Matt to get up here. It isn't until the 25th but it is still in October, right?! I feel like it will have given her enough time to start adjusting to being back here and accepting that this us where we are for now and it will be good for her to see him and spend time with him and hopefully she will be somewhat ok when he has to go back on the 30th. He will pick her up from school and take her out on one of their 'Daddy and Katie dates' and they will get to spend some time together.

I am just so tired. I am nervous, I am stressed, I am worried, I am grasping for any ounce of normalcy in life and I am really not happy that I can't control anything.

Anyway, I am off to get Mike who just woke up from his nap... Hope you are all doing well and that I can get back on here and let you all know that we have finally gotten some news soon!

Please continue to keep those prayers coming... we definitely need them!!

Love,
Chrissie

Hey, I was linked over here from Renee. She said that you used to post on Moms at Home, and I'm pretty sure I remember you. I just wanted to let you know that your family is in my prayers!

Hey, Chrissie,
When we're running from pillar to post taking care of my parents, my sister and I keep telling one another "God never gives you more than you can handle." Then we always add...but He's pushing His luck.
I see He has the same plan in mind for your family!
We all prayed for Mike at my Catholic Daughters meeting last night and, of course, your family is in our personal prayers and thoughts always.
Stay strong...Love,
Linda Maurer

I can't believe they still haven't diagnosed him yet...you are handling it very well Chrissie. You have to just stay positive and remember that there are many people praying for him right now...I believe in the power of prayer and I know for your son's sake, it will all work out.
I tell ya what though....You are one strong Mama, you are like a super hero right now. :-)
