Primary Children's Hospital is great!

We went to Primary's yesterday for Noble. The doctor wasn't even in there for more than 5 minutes but told us it was a hernia and told us a little about the surgery. He was really nice. I was most impressed with the facility. Of course the hospital is totally for children but I wasn't expecting it to have murals on the wall everywhere and in the waiting room they had little cars to drive and toys on the wall. It was great. It was the first time I think my husband and I had a hard time taking AJ out of a waiting room. Usually he wants to get out of places and move to the next. Anyways, everything went great. We have our surgery planned for April 21st. We have to get to the hospital around 6am. That is right, I actually have to wake up early in the morning to get him there. My only trouble is they want him to fast. I have to stop feeding him about 2am and then I can feed him water up to 2 hours before the surgery. This will be interesting considering my boy eats all the time. They did say that I will be able to take him home the same day which is one less thing I have to worry about. I am a little bit less scared about it all after going but it is still my baby having surgery, nothing will make knowing that less scary.
AJ is doing good and mom is holding together. Hopefully soon the weather will warm up so I can take this boy to the playground and run him tired!
