We went to Alberta Children’s Hospital this week for a consultation with the surgeon.Alberta Children’s Hospital, it’s a huge building on a hillside that looks like it is made of Lego. Kids were involved in the design of the building, and it looks just like a building a kid would draw. Huge windows of different colors, as if it was made of Lego bricks. The only problem is once the kids get inside they discover it is not a Lego heaven, but rather a hospital.
Charlie has an inguinal hernia. The docs checked him out and confirmed he will need surgery. It will be a quick day surgery, it’s one of the most common surgeries they do at the hospital, but it’s still surgery.
UPDATE: Here’s a look at our day in the hospital for Charlie’s hernia surgery
