Sean and I saw Richard Dawkins last Thursday when he was at the U promoting his new book, The Greatest Show on Earth. It was so exciting to hear him read passages and answer questions. I had chills! Plus, the turnout was amazing - about 5,000 people. I have heard that this may have been the largest crowd Prof. Dawkins has addressed in North America . Cool - Sean and I were THERE!
Then, on Saturday, an adventure we could have done without: a trip to the Emergency Department after Sean woke up with a swollen, tingly and aching hand. Poor guy. We spent a very long time at the hospital getting him checked out, but it was for the best. The ortho team gave him an immobilization cast that went on in what seemed like a matter of seconds. This team was amazing. As soon as the attending uttered the words "immobilization cast," the residents went into action. The three docs worked like a finely oiled machine. If I had the camera, I would have filmed them in action. Wow.
Today, we are trying to get Sean a follow-up appointment with the hand specialist so I thought I would do a quick blog post while I am waiting for the nurse to call us back. Keep your fingers crossed for a speedy appointment and good news.
