Last weekend I was finally able to spend some much-needed time with the fam to celebrate my dad's birthday. My 4 year old nephew had a birthday party, so arrived a little later than I did. Here was our exchange shortly after his arrival.....
Looking at me very seriously
G: Natalie - when are you having surgery?
Me: I don't know yet, buddy. I have to wait for the doctor to give me the date.
G: Are you scared to have surgery?
Me: A little bit, but I'm mostly excited because I'll be way more fun .... I'll be able to run and frolic and play with you guys.
*** short break while we try to explain frolicking to a 4 year old and his 8 year old sister ***
G: I want you to have surgery.
I really do have the greatest, most supportive family...right down to the four year old.
