Instead of going to his second day of kindergarten, five-year-old Oscar is scheduled for dental-related surgery this morning. It’s nothing major, but he will be under general anesthesia and of course, I’m terrified. Six kids, and not one has ever been put under, so I’m not sure what to expect. I find myself chanting anesthesia related thoughts (“breathe” and “wakeup”) whenever I see Oscar run by.

I will be at the Children’s hospital for most of today’s work hours, so I won’t be able to blog, but here’s a video of Oscar singing Frying Pan in case you need something to make you smile. (It was filmed by the kids and is quite jumpy, so if that sort of thing makes you dizzy, sorry!).

UPDATE: Oscar is home and doing great! Yay!! Thank you so much for your kind words. The reassurance you offered was wonderful.

P.S. — We like this cover of Frying Pan sung by Evan Dando — lyrics are listed here too.
