My son is going in for surgery on Tuesday morning to get those little tubes in his ears that supposedly prevent ear infections. I know it\’s a routine procedure, but find me a parent in America that\’s comfortable with their kid going under the knife for any reason. I mean, it is surgery, so I am mildly freaked.

Anyway, while you\’re praying for the collective souls of humankind, feel free to slip one in for my little guy.

UPDATE: Things went well, although he was pretty cranky afterwards. Nothing a little ice cream and Sesame Street couldn\’t fix. But thanks to everyone for your well wishes.
