Sophie has the flu. No surgery for 6 weeks. I can't make this stuff up. I keep crying. The stress of preparing to go, and now the change of plans....she can't have surgery until February.

For two weeks I have kept her away from kid germ breeding, playgrounds etc.

We went to get her pre-0p physical done on Thursday. It has to be done 30 days prior to surgery...we didn't get that info or the form until Tuesday or I certainly would have had it done sooner. I didn't want to go in the germ hub of kid crud. 3 days later she has the flu.

I'm so sorry - this stinks! And now I don't have a hospital buddy to talk to:(

I hope sweet Sophie beats the flu quickly and this is just a small bump in your plans. I really hate to even mention this, but I called Cincy to ask about the pre-op physical and was told Ash didn't really need one. I don't know why they even send out those dumb forms!

Take care from your (almost) hospital buddy,

Heather...they forgot to put the form in the packet and I just happened to be going over the info when it came it so I called. They were adamant about the form that they faxed it to Chris!

Just as well I suppose...although we won't get a chance to chat in the hallway:( I would have freaked if I drove all the way there and was cancelled at cincy.
