Belly Button Surgery Nummies

They didn't say no, anyway. Just not the morning of the surgery, or the 24
hours following.
I can't imagine how we'll go 2 days without nummies, though... or have him
shlepped back and forth so he can get a little nummies the week I'm away.
Or how I'm going to possibly take a week out of my busy life... :-(((
