Alec's surgery day

The best laid plans....we had Alec's surgery scheduled for today and were told to have him at the hospital at 6:15 a.m. We had lined up some very gracious friends to get Evan and Ann-Marie to school, and to pick up Ann-Marie after kindergarten. So what a surprise when Ann-Marie started throwing up at 4 a.m. this morning. Plan B: Darrell stays home with Ann-Marie and Paula takes Alec to his surgery. So off we go....

Alec's surgery went smoothly....the dr. said his right ear was very bad so it was a good thing we got it done. We were home by 10 a.m., in enough time for me to come down with the stomach virus. We think this is a case of the wonderful zoo trip that just keeps on giving. On the way home from the zoo on Tuesday, one of the children threw up in the van. Now all three families represented have had a run in with this stomach virus. Thankfully, it just seems to be a 24 hour virus. So today has been a recuperation day....which was very much needed.

Thank you for all of your thoughts and prayers!

I am glad Alec's surgery went well.

I am sorry you and Ann Marie are sick.

We missed having Ann Marie today.
