So things have just been a whirlwind of craziness here this last week and even still!! Mid week I took my son Thomas up to Primary Children's for a visit with the urologist, Patrick Cartwright, upon a referral from his pediatrician . We've used him before for Kaylee!! So at any rate the doctor said that we need to schedule a surgery within the next 3 months to correct this issue before it becomes a more severe problem. So come June 13th, my husband and I will take our son up to Primary's to have this surgery performed to correct the hydocele that he has. Which I guess it's common for lots of boys to have done. But let me tell you about some of the fun from the visit that I thought was important to remember.
This office was so COOL!! Of course, I've been here before, but even still some remodeling had taken place. But the TRAIN is always the COOLEST thing. Thomas is way into trains, and with this one on a track up high to look at -- how could any kid not like it. This train helped calm my son down while we were waiting at the beginning. (Thomas fell asleep in the car on the drive from Provo to Salt Lake and then I had to take him out of his seat and he woke up "prematurely" so he was CRANKY and not too Happy.)

Here he is waiting in the room, and crying and screaming that he "WANTS TO GO HOME!"

He finally calmed down and then was able to pick out this cool green snake, and then get a "sugar-free" succor from the doctor's nurse. I'm so glad that he stopped crying, I was trying to do everything in my power to help cheer him up, but it was very hard and frustrating.

Primary's has the coolest elevators, here are a couple that I couldn't resist not taking a picture of. What cooler thing than that of a trajn engine. "Hurry Thomas, MOVE!" Did I also mention that we went on an African Safari too??

And that Thomas became a GIANT!!! And was intimidating people in a nearby village?

Thomas and I then left the hospital and I managed to get this picture of the valley while stopped at a light. Pretty gross!! I mean the quality of the air. But then I sit and try to imagine what it looked like when the pioneers first came through and Brigham Young said, "this is the place" -- WOW!!! I wish that I could have seen it around the time they finished building the Salt Lake Temple.
