I cannot believe what I just agreed to do.
Let me preface what I'm about to tell you all by explaining that we're not staying in New York for the next week because Dovi's too sick to fly. We're staying because, G-d forbid there are any complications, Dr. Feldman doesn't want anyone else to deal with his leg/surgical site.
Raphi, Dovi's counselor, called me on Tuesday asking me if Dovi wanted to go to a Chai Lifeline/Camp Simcha Special mini shabbaton (weekend get together thingy) this weekend (in Lawrence-not up at Camp Simcha).
"NO WAY" was my immediate response. He just had surgery on Monday!
But Raphi continued:
"Sara, it's in a big lovely house. The head nurse and head paramedic from Camp Simcha Special will be there. One of the camp doctors lives right nearby and will be on call. He'll have more medical supervision than if you're at home. C'mon. You know he'll have the best time!"
So I contemplated.
I asked Dovi what he thought.
He said he wanted to be with me.
Then, this afternoon, he changed his mind. He wants to go.
Raphi is picking him up tomorrow at 4pm.
Have I lost my mind?????
Reassure me here, folks.
