The kid’s tonsils are coming out tomorrow.

We’re all a little nervous, so he and I spent some time perusing You Tube for videos about the surgery. He liked Marissa’s video the best. I think because she’s a bit older than he is and because the hospital gave her a teddy bear and because she made it through the IV insertion. (That’s the part he’s most worried about.)

He’s not the only one who has been worrying. I’m a worrywart with my own hospital fears, which I’ve tried very hard not to think about. So, of course, the anesthesia article in The Atlantic was the exact wrong thing to read. I’m going to continue not thinking about everything mentioned in that piece.
