Yesterday was Ethan’s clinical appointment day. Thanks to my new best friend Maggie (our GPS); we made it to DC Children’s in record time (45 minutes).
After waiting for about a half hour they took us to our room. The cool thing about Children’s is that they have a flat screen TV in every room. So in addition to a backpack full of toys for the day, we packed Star Wars movies. Ethan and I were like pigs in slop. Jenn, the more evolved family member, read her book. Judging from the cover it was one of those renaissance books with women in frilly dresses pining for some guy in stockings who is dying of consumption.
No Earth shattering news…which is great news. He does have to have another urodynamics test (another day). But hey, who wouldn’t want a tube shoved up to their bladder and then pumped full of liquid until they almost explode. Good times.
At one point during his appointments, I almost laughed at an inappropriate time. It is all part of being me. The urologist was doing his physical exam and he noted that his penis was “unremarkable”. To a man this is the equivalent to stabbing him in the eye with an ice pick. Unremarkable indeed!
