Getting Sugary for Surgery

We arrived in NYC this afternoon and after getting settled we went out for dinner and cupcakes. I don't know what other people do to prepare for brain surgery but a decadent chocolate cupcake felt right to us.

My mom is flying in tonight and we will all show up at the hospital at 8:30 tomorrow morning. We will meet with a nurse, the anesthesiologist and the surgical team before heading to the OR. We aren't sure exactly what time Evan will have surgery but our guess is they will begin around 11:00 or 12:00.

Tonight at dinner Evan remarked, "Next month I won't be having seizures any more!" When preparing for surgery, that attitude is even better than a chocolate cupcake.

I'm sure that's just what Dr. Weiner would have prescribed if you'd asked him!
Love that kid's attitude!
Love to all of you, and know that we'll be thinking of you!
