A hundred years from now it will not matter what my bank account was, the sort of house I lived in, or the kind of car I drove...but the world may be different because I was important in the life of a child. --Forest E. Witcraft

On the Mend

BB had his tonsils and adenoids out last Friday.  BB was a rock star as he woke up from surgery.  He amazed the nurses by asking for water.  He then downed one glass of water, two of apple juice, and two popsicles within about an hour.  We moved to a room, because the doctor insisted on monitoring his sleep overnight.

BB had a great day Friday and continued to drink.  He was also generally calm, only a couple of small fits when he couldn't get rid of the IV in his foot.  Unfortunately, he spit out about half of each dose of pain medicine given to him during the night.  By Saturday morning, he refused to swallow and tried to talk through a mouth of saliva.  We had an awesome nurse, who was able to get pain medicine in him.  About an hour later, BB was drinking again.  One more day of blocks and TV, and we came home after the evening dose of pain medicine.

He continues to mend and is drinking well and eating a little more each day.  Hopefully he will start sleeping better once he heals completely and the swelling goes away.

My parents and Miss M held the fort down at home, with lots of help from May and Sweets and Buddy.  I am so grateful for family and friends who are willing and able to help.  Thank you!
