It's go time

Tomorrow The Boy has an Appointment. After waiting through whatever caused his sickness last week and waiting a few extra days while the doctors negotiated and consulted and what have you, we are going to Philadelphia.

The catch: we don't really know what's going to happen next. They will do a biopsy of the left side, from the back, while he is getting a CT scan. Just like on House. From there, it could go in several different directions. He could still have some sort of infection, in which case they need to treat it before any surgery happens. We might go home or back to our normal hospital if that's the case. He could still have that extra spleen thing that they were talking about, or the tumor that I hope hasn't grown. If that's the case, he stays and gets surgery. We don't know how long he'll be in the hospital either way.

We get to travel somewhere where we really don't know many people to go through a rather uncertain process. Not so much looking forward to that.

Also not too keen on the fact that twice in a row I'll be missing the same set of classes. "E" day is the best day in my schedule at school. Not that I don't enjoy every day, but "E" day is particularly exciting.

If I don't get to post, check Musical Daddy's blog for updates as well.
