Bummed today

I'm just a little bummed today. I went for an expansion today and a doctor visit. We had every hope that he would do a large expansion as they have the past few visits and say that we were done until the surgery in a couple of months.

No such luck. He didn't like the way the skin was looking like it had been overstretched a bit. He wouldn't expand really today (only 25 ccs instead of the usual 120 ccs) and said he wants to do two more expansions. So, I have an appointment in three weeks, then another 2 weeks after that if all looks good. Then in 6 weeks another visit with the doctor. IF he says all looks good, then we can schedule the final surgery (replacement of the expander with an implant and some lipo) for 2 months after that.

In other words, I'm look towards at LEAST four months before I'm done. October.

GRRRRR.

:( That sucks. But on the other hand, at least he's trying to do it right. I know that must be so frustrating though.

Hey you - you asked about alternate hotels that would be close to us:

Holiday Inn at Huntsville Research Park has an $85 a night room

Days Inn and Suites is $79 a night and pretty close

So is ESA (Extended Stay America) suites near the Space and Rocket Center

Value place Madison is VERY basic, but very cheap. Like $40 bucks a night. I would rather sleep on the floor and let you have my bed than have you stay somewhere that cheap looking. :)

Seriously, I can bring sleeping bags for the boys and put them on pillows across the floor, mom and I will take one bed and you and LG can have the other for the nights you are there. I don't want hotel costs to keep us apart *laugh*
