Dr. F was supposed to call Tuesday night; they rescheduled to Wednesday night between 5:00 and 7:00. I waited till 10:00 and the went to bed after sending their office an email. This morning there is a response saying he is sorry and will call this morning around 8:00. This should be a quick, easy call, I'm not expecting any problems!
Alex has her first lesson driving with an instructor today. She got her permit about 2 weeks ago, but in California it isn't valid until you drive with an instructor. Brian took her out twice and I took her once, despite it being illegal. It seems pretty dumb to me to put a 15 year old behind the wheel for the first time in a neighbor hood full of people, cars, and traffic. Brian found an area where development of a neighborhood was halted by the economy- roads with no people- a ghost neighborhood! It will take 6 months to get her license, 5 lessons with an instructor and 50 hours behind the wheel with one of us. With surgery and recovery I imagine it will take more than the 6 months.
