I ended up needing an unexpected C-section with the baby - my first surgery ever. The first few days were hell, but we're back home now, the baby is doing great, and I'm feeling stronger every day. difficult child will be here tomorrow, and I'm freaking out... I'm recovering from unexpected major surgery, I have a brand new baby, and consequently I'm in a emotional, hormonal postpartum whirlwind... Nobody in my husband's family nor anyone from the school, not once, has asked me how I feel about the visit, nobody has said anything about any plans or support for while she's here, nothing. My mother in law is sooooooo concerned about how difficult child's room looks and about the big sweet 16 family birthday party she's throwing, but apparently doesn't care one whit about how I'm feeling, even though I'm the one who is most vulnerable right now and I'm the one who is going to be the most affected. I guess I'm going to just do my thing, take care of my baby and myself, and let the chips fall where they may. This isn't going to be easy.
