Today will be weird. **Update on reply 12** Update again with results
SS (12) has a biopsy of his small intestine today. BM can not come, as she has to work. DH decided this morning that he MAY take off to come, but hasn't decided for sure yet. Yesterday, when BM dropped SS off, she informed me that her boyfriend will be joining me at the hospital for this procedure. It will be incredibly weird.
DH & I have met bf only a dozen or so times (on a talking level, we've seen him many times), he sees SS only on weekends, and not all that much on the weekends - BM & SS stay with her family on weekends because bf's house isn't suitable for SS to stay in. So, he KNOWS SS, but he doesn't KNOOOOOW SS. Does that make sense? And I don't know him. They've been together a few years, but it still feels like it's going to be super akward.
I had to have authorization signed by DH to give me permission to take SS to appointments, and this children's hospital checked to make sure I had authorization at SS's PCP. So, I don't think mom's boyfriend is going to get to go back with SS until he falls asleep & when he wakes up, and I have a feeling this is going to cause issues with BM.
So, be thinking of us!
BTW, the biopsy is to rule out/diagnose celiac disease.
