Late November progress report

Getting closer to having a date for surgery. The doctor's office advised they should have the January schedule by Friday- so we are either on it, or can be fairly confident it will be in February. But stuff is happening - Avery has her lung capacity test (required for surgery) on Monday morning and we go to Sick Kids on Tuesday.

I was hoping Avery would write about her upset at yoga last week, but I guess she is 12 -maybe her father can fill you in as he was there with her - what I got from the story was that Avery noticed her curve has gotten worse because they were doing some wall work, and previously she could do this stuff, but this time, she just couldn't. Since I like the silver lining for such things, I figure that a moment of personal recognition of the limitation at least makes all this talk of surgery not seem cosmetic or unnecessary in the eyes of the owner. 

According to the Ontario wait time website, the average wait for this surgery at McMaster is 243 days. At sick kids it was over 400. Perspective helps I guess.
