The Bear is having surgery in the morning. We have to be at the hospital over in Phoenix by 5am. Oye! They will be operating on both of his legs, clipping the tendons in his calves, to prevent him from walking on his toes anymore. This is the last resort, as the leg braces he has been wearing for the past few years haven't really been doing it. He will be in casts for 6 weeks after the surgery (smelly and yucky!), then will do leg braces for 6 months after that. Hopefully, that will be it. (We were looking at leg braces indefinitely without the surgery.)
I am feeling really anxious and nervous about it. It's not a HUGE deal, but still, I'll be glad when it's over. I've got a LOT to do today, and I hope I can get through it all with minimal stress.
