Ok, so Deirdre and I drove into the city on Monday in the pouring rain!! It took us over 3 hours, so we were late, of course. When we got to the Dr. he walked in and looked at the stitches and said "looks great, aren't you happy your drove all the way in here for that."
I reminded him about Jack's eye that keeps wandering, and he thinks it needs more time. Ok, so that was it. I think, or I know that parking garage took us far longer then the appointment!!!
I made his MRI appointment for June 15th and his Dr. appointment for June 16th, so it looks like we will be staying over in the city that night. It is strange, but I can't wait for his MRI. I am curious to hear and see what they think.
Terry is feeling good since his surgery. He would like to do more then he should and is driving us crazy, but he is recovering well. Shoulder surgery is much easier then spinal surgery, just incase you wanted to know that!!

On a side note, we sold our camper!! YAY!!! We will now have a nice big driveway to park in and play in. What fun. We will miss the camper and the memories, but for now, it is better to see it go.

will update soon, but for now a quote, just sums up how I am feeling at the moment!!

Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.

Since Jack's surgery he has been slowly getting better. It truly is amazing how fast children bounce back.
Jack was really wobbly and dizzy, we called the Dr. and asked him about it and he had us take him off the seizure medication. We think that has made a difference in him. Then, on Thursday, I noticed that his right eye wasn't tracking right. It was wandering off to the side when he was looking at me. It has been doing it quite a bit since then as well. Tomorrow, Monday the 3rd, we are heading in to see the Dr. with Jack and my friend, his Godmother, Deirdre. It is just a routine 2 week check-up, and he will check out his eye to see what is going on. The Dr. thinks that as the cyst is collapsing the fluid is flooding his 3rd nerve and causing the eye to wander.

This past Friday, Terry went in to the Hospital for Special Surgery and FINALLY had his shoulder surgery!!!!! We LOVE HSS, it is such a nice hospital. Dr. Fealy performed Terry's surgery and did a great job. He said his rotator cuff was ok enough and didn't need surgery, but his bicep tendon was shredded and needed to be repaired, his labrum was torn bad and needed 2 screws and lanyards to fix it, and he had a bone spur that he removed. So far Terry is feeling good and just hanging out. Unfortunately it is his right shoulder and he can't move it, at all, for 2 weeks!
I'd like to thank all the people who have been making us dinner this past week. Everything has been so yummy and really a life saver. It is nice to know that your friends and people in the community are there to help you when you need it most! Such a blessing to live in a great town, filled with great people!
