This morning, Gpa took Son up to the doctor to have his pre-surgery physical. For those of you who didn't know, in August, Son broke his nose. They did surgery and put it back in place, but the septum was still poking out to one side. So next Tuesday, he will have a septoplasty performed. They will slit the piece of nose in the middle, pull it back and take the mis-aligned cartilage out. Sounds like fun, huh?
Son is starting to get nervous about it. This morning, he and I went through what to talk to the doctor about. He asked if Doc was going to check for a hernia (you know, turn your head and cough). I told him, well since the surgery is in his head, I doubted that the doctor would check below his waist.
We also talked about the anti-inflammatory meds he is on. He can take Acetaminophen, but not the prescription for his knee from now through about three weeks. I wrote all this down for him to talk to the doctor about. I then told him to call me on the company land line when he is finished. So what do I get? A text that says..."It is a go." I am assuming that means everything was talked about and is fine for next week's surgery, but...He is thirteen.
