Beach, New Hampshire, and Surgery

After leaving our beach vacation in NH, things have been a little hectic. Last Tuesday, Michael and I flew to NH to visit Gamma and Papa for a few days. We left Baba on his own for the first time since we returned home from China. If anyone was wondering, he did survive without us with a little help from Joe, Joseph, and a few video games.

Michael and I had a great trip to New Hampshire. We did a little site seeing, visited Papa on the job, and did a little shopping. Mama, Gamma, and Papa all got their daily exercise keeping Michael from falling down and up the many stairs in the house that baby gates would not fit in. Michael and I returned home on Saturday.

Today, we went to the pre-op appointment with Michael's surgeon. He will have surgery on Thursday. The surgery is scheduled for 8:30 a.m. We have to be there early for them to get him ready. He will be in the hospital overnight for observation and we will return home on Friday. I will try to update the blog as soon as I can when we get home.

Here are some pictures from the beach and New Hampshire:
