Pre-Op Thoughts

• I let the kids pack their own clothes. I hope they packed underwear.

• I sat Dylan and Kate down and told them how much I love being their mom. I told them that if God ever decided he needed me in heaven, to make sure that Scott found a beautiful, kind new wife. Dylan said, "like a step mom?" and I said "No, a REAL mom? And you would be super lucky to have two moms". He said, "ya two moms is great, but one mom is better if it is you." this made my heart smile. It was kind of a mature conversation, but I felt better for getting my wishes out there.

• I'm looking forward to hospital food. Is that weird?  

• I started crying when I was praying for my Surgeons. I was expressing how much they would be blessing my life if they could fix the problems and I completely lost it. How cool would it be to truly be able to change someone's life like that for good? Pretty awesome. 

• Scott is the best husband in the entire world. He helped me so much today and he knew just what to say. I love him. 

• Hoping that tomorrow I have one less hole in my bladder and one less hole in my Uterus. Fingers crossed. 

• Best case scenario I stop leaking fluids from all the wrong places and I get to have another baby. 

• Hoping the incision from my belly button down to my pubic bone isn't too hideous. 

• Grateful that the hospital is close to my parents house. 

• Grateful for my faith, my friends, my family, my husband, my children. 

• Watched an amazing documentary last night called Buck. Now all I can think of is riding horses

• I am blessed. 

I will check in tomorrow and let you know how it went. 

I love you all.

I look forward to hospital food when I have my babies. But it's still weird. Hope Bingham Memorial has as good of food as the hospitals in Ogden. :) Can't wait to hear how it all went! I hope you heal quickly and completely! Love you.

Hospital food is good, but I also like school cafeteria food and airplane food (back in the day), so what do I know. I hope it went great. I had my son, Preston pray for you last night and he said, "Erin? Like we have to go run an Erin?" I thought it was cute.

I say be Proud of that scar. Especially if it means successful surgeons, successful surgery, & fixed mommy! Hospital food means someone is placing it in front of you warm & ready to eat & all you had to do was mark your choices. Appreciate each moment. So happy you are well enough to post!

Erin, I'm so glad it's all done, I've been thinking about you all day not exaggerating.

Dustin and I are planning on visiting tomorrow! Can't wait to see you. I love you and I am so glad that your kids won't need another wife because I don't want a new sister-in-law ;)

Love you tons! Let me know if you have any requests for treats, red-box movies, drinks, you name it, I'll bring it.
