Ok, so it’s a good thing Jen is a little neurotic (in a good way, of course!).

She called the hospital to make sure we had done what we needed for the surgery tomorrow. They didn’t have Ben scheduled for surgery. Jen called the doctor’s office back. There was a new nurse doing scheduling and got confused, evidently. Ben is having a CT scan tomorrow. After that will come the surgery scheduling.

So it goes. God is good.

Jen reminded me that, besides his week in the hospital after his birth, this next proceedure will be the sixth time he has been in the hospital for something. (pneunomia – 2x, tubes – 2x, heart surgery – 1x, upcoming adenoid/tonsil/tubes – 1x)

Do they give out prizes for things like this?
