My mom just called to say her brother finally got word from their pediatrician that his stepson's bloodwork was NEGATIVE for chickenpox! Although that means difficult child 1 had to take a high-dose course of acyclovir for nothing, at least now we can breathe easy. I just sent an email to the OR scheduler at the urologists to see if we still have the spot she got us on the 11th for difficult child 1's "procedure." I really, really hope we didn't lose it -- we both want to get this thing over with as soon as possible. Thanks everyone for rattling beads, prayers, and good thoughts.
