We had our pre-op appointment this afternoon to have Mad's line removed. Nothing exciting, they are going to remove the line, as we expected. We now have to wait for insurance to authorize the 20 minute out-patient procedure, and then be put on the surgeon's schedule. They said it could take 2-3 weeks just for the authorization!! Hopefully it won't be that long because I'm so eager to get that line out.
Because Ryan is out of town at a conference in Philadelphia this week (he gave a talk this morning and it went really well), Mad, Humphrey and I are headed up to Coarsegold tomorrow to visit grandma and grandpa. I also hear that there will be some snowmobiling (for me, not Mad) with Uncle Kyle and Aunt Karen! I'm excited, but a little nervous. The one and only time that I rode my brother's dirtbike I propelled us both over the handlebars. Sure, that was probably fifteeen years ago (holy crap I'm old!) - but I haven't learned anything about driving recreational vehicles in the interim.
Thanks for thinking of my friends and their baby. The baby's surgery went very well and they are currently recovering in the hospital. They didn't even have to go to the ICU, which is GREAT news. I'm sure they are relieved to have the surgery behind them.
