This is what freedom looks like:
Last night Evan talked about some of his concerns about having brain surgery. We told him we wouldn't make this decision without him and that his opinion is very important. Nervously, I asked him if he wanted to have brain surgery and he said, "I'll take any risk to cure myself."
He also talked about missing Aria:
Evan: dad, if I tell you something will you promise not to tell Sria?
Rob: (hesitantly) ok...
Evan: I really miss Aria. I wish she was here.
I wouldn't have posted this except that when he spoke to Aria on the phone this morning, the first thing he did was tell her how much he missed her. The boy cannot keep a secret-- not even his own!
We are on our way home now and will be back in time for dinner! It will be great to see Aria and Grandpa Jim!
