Aiden was born in Syracuse, NY and actually had one of his operations there, when he was seventeen months old. We never had good experiences in Syracuse and God blessed us with finding Dr. Kogan at Albany Medical.
So, want to know a sure fire way for getting in and out of the doctor's office on time?
Bring six children with you.
Aiden was in and out, ultrasound and all, in under an hour. (smile)
And while we (briefly) waited for his test results to be reviewed, I kept the other kids occupied with riddles. Don't you love Andrew's puzzled face here? And Ella has fallen back in exasperation.
Annaliese, holding Addie, in the background finally solved the riddle.
What is my name?
I have the name of a vegetable I am not.
I have the name of an animal I am not.
Leave your guesses in the comments and I'll think up something fun to send to the first one to guess correctly.
We left the doctors with a happy report and will visit again next year. We had a great family day in Albany, eating out a Chipotle, visiting the Albany campus of our church and stopping by General Herkimer's home.
