Ben Visits the Hospital Part 2

Tomorrow Benyamin (2 years..pictured in dramatic jam sprayed close up) goes for his second visit to the hospital to see what's wrong with his hearing. He will be having a general anaesthetic and while he is out they will be doing an MIR scan and a conventional x-ray of his inner and middle ear respectively. Hopefully this will show why he is so diminished in his hearing in both ears. There is a nurses' strike that began today in Sweden (they are paid very low wages comparatively with what others earn following a similar period of time that is required to finish their education) so we were not sure if the procedure would be going ahead. But they are prioritising children so Ben is up for it tomorrow at 7:30am. I will be off the air for a time as a result. See you on Wednesday. Good luck Ben!
Update: We arrived at the hospital at 7:30 and the preliminaries began. It was decided that Ben had a slight cold with a slight fever and therefore it could not go ahead. We were home by 9:00am and the examination will take place later. Maybe after the nurses stike ends, which may be weeks away.
