Oh my!

Well, the last few days...really the last month has been nothing but one thing after the other around here. Greg has had problems with having a growth on his thyroid for several months now. It has been an ordeal just trying to get that taken care of. Well, finally they decided to schedule him for a partial thyroidectomy right after Molly was born! So, he had that done last Wednesday. Then, if things couldn't get any worse, he develops a post-op staph infection!!!!! So poor Greg has spent the better part of 5 days in some sort of medical facility. He had us all scared, because as you know staph is nothing to mess with. It turns out he didn't have the nastier of the strains. I won't go into all the run around we got before getting a resolution. Let me just say, I am not very pleased with some of the service we got from the Vancouver Healthcare System.

They had to drain all the infection out, and then had him on some serious i.v. antibiotics for a couple of days.
He is home now, and on oral antibiotics 3 times a day. It is so good to have him home now. He sure missed his girls. :)
So, we are hoping that the next week we will be back to some sort of normalcy.

It has been a crazy month, starting with the birth of our daughter by c-section, and then this with Greg. Luckily my mom was here when Greg was going through his ordeal. It was a huge help on top of her helping with Molly.

She left this morning, so now the real challenges can commence. :)

Molly will be a month old on the 11th of this month. It doesn't seem like it should be that long now, but time has flown by.

Well, I hope that in the coming weeks, I will have only good things to report.
I hope this finds you all well.
