the bravery award



here's the patient....


sweet little guy. We are so proud of him for being SO brave yesterday. He had to have his tonsils and adenoids out, and the anesthesiologist didn't let us go back with him til he fell asleep with the mask, (which I was annoyed by, because that is scary stuff), but being the laid back little trooper he is, he gave us a hug and walked back with the nurse.

We saw him next when they wheeled him back up to his room where we waited for him and we just chilled for the rest of the day, and he had to do a few certain "jobs" before they let him come home.

We got home yesterday afternoon, and had a rough night, but he's doing pretty well and on the road to recovery.

We're so thankful that it went well, and so glad it's over!

Good to hear he is recovering fine! What a brave little guy! Here's an awesome jello recipe I made the other day..

Just the thing to gently slurp down the throat! (And cool looking too)
Hope the nights get better!

Bless his heart. What a trooper. It's so hard to see your children going through something that causes them discomfort and "scariness". Boo on the doctors for not letting you back there until he fell asleep. Glad all went well and he's doing well.
