Highs and Lows

The bad stuff first
*Little Man is in a fair amount of pain
*There has been screamage, hittage and vileness galore
*Because of the stomach surgery, there will be no night time meds for now. (The ones we give to make him sleep.) We usually give them to him at 6 pm. Yeah, now it will be 11 pm ARGH. I will be luck if he falls asleep before 1 am. Yawn.
*My kid has a g tube

The good stuff
*My kid has a g tube
*The surgery went really well and he recovered well from the anesthesia
*The pain meds seem to be working well and helping ALOT
*The best part of all??? Bald Man is here and letting me have a break for a couple of hours! WHOOOT! If I were a drinker, I would be going out for a drink. Being a good Mormon, I will have to settle for calories without the alcohol.

I have no idea when they will be springing us tomorrow, but we should be going home at some point.
Thanks for all the nice comments and love, it is sorely needed and deeply appreciated.
Don't worry, I think for Fix It Friday, you folks will be getting a demo in feeding a kid with a g tube, with lots of pictures. It is weirdly facsinating, let me tell you!

Golly...I just can't wait for Friday!

I am so glad the surgery went well, and that everything is okay. Rest and enjoy your calories.

Azul said...

I'm glad his tube's in, and sorry that he's in pain.

Enjoy your break, and here's to a restful night(after the p.m. meds, of course) for you both.

I'm sorry I don't have time to read everything right now... Back to work and I'm missing two nights of sleep, I'm sure you know how it is. But just know I'm glad the surgery went well and that I'm always thinking of y'all, whether I have details or not.


Katie said...

Really glad his tubes in and surgery went well. I may now however spend the rest of the day wondering what form the calories will take!

I'm glad you have as many items in the "good stuff" column as the "bad stuff" one.

Hope you are all sprung soon and that the good stuff gets the upper hand really soon.

I am looking forward to the demo!

It sounds like things are going as well as could be expected!

Best wishes for a quick recovery (for all of you!).

K J and the kids said...

I can't wait.
and oddly enough...there are plenty of times lately in which I had a g-tube and could be fed without smelling or tasting any of it ! blak :)

Tammy and Parker said...

A g-tube! We LOVE Parker's. Give your little man a big hug from us.

And tell Dr. Very Nice to give that kids some pain meds! sheesh!
