husband/difficult child 4 has a vascular malformation in his right temporal lobe that's been causing simple partials since '02 (we finally got this all figured out in December). After four different neurovascular consults in the past three weeks, he decided to "get it over with" and scheduled the surgery for this coming Tuesday. We're taking a belated anniversary weekend away starting tomorrow (it was last October!) and then I'll be relocating to the hospital with him for a few days. He'll be home recuperating for 6 to 8 weeks... I just hope I don't lose my mind in the interim! Please keep him (and our difficult children) in your prayers. I'll post an update when I have news.
