Evolutionary Baggage BeGone!

Last February you may remember when I won a huge parenting trophy for ignoring Bug's little stomachache that turned out to be appendicitis.

Good times.

Well, over a year has passed and Bug still has his appendix. It's an interesting story about a pediatric surgeon who lead us to believe that kids who have appendicitis typically go on for long, happy lives with the appendix never being taken out. And while that may be the case in some circumstances, Bug's pediatrician was horrified when she discovered that Bug's appendix was still inside him.

So we got a new surgeon who will be removing Bug's mean, nasty appendix tomorrow. So The Man is on Munchkin and Goober duty while I spend my Friday night in the hospital with Bug. And the fear of appendicitis for at least one kid will be nullified forever. Silver lining.
