Way back and wordful Whensday - hospitals!
Playing with Angie for Wordful Wednesday....
He came through fine yesterday! Grommets in, adenoids out (and they were huge!- no wonder he has been snoring since day 1). We had to be at the hospital at 6 am so I took him in his PJ's and we were lucky to be first on the theatre list at 7:30. The pre-med stuff put him on such a high - it was so cute. He kept waving and talking to everybody. They allowed me to go right in theatre with him (hoping I looked like a character from Greys - alas, nothing sexy about paper hats) and he fell asleep smiling at mommy. I found it really hard to see him "go" and to leave him there. About 20 minutes later my friend Jewls who works in another theatre at the same hospital came out to tell me it is all over and he is fine. Bless her soul! 5 minutes later the doctor came out to talk to us and just another 5 minutes later I had him, screaming and aggressive in my arms. After about 30 minutes he calmed down and we waited our time out to go home.
Armed with his hasies (bunny), Dino and Granny blanky.
We were so relieved all went well and after a nap we could not keep him still. He was running outside with his brother and just fell over - face first, onto the paving. So we had to stop the blood and pay a surprise visit to the dentist to check on a somewhat loose front tooth. He said it was fine and will fasten itself again, but gosh, that was so not necessary.
Thanks again friends in cyberspace, for your love, support and prayers.
And off course, I will not let a chance go by to play along with Cheryl:
In keeping with the hospital pictures - our previous two visits:
Timeline: April 2008
Age of the twins: 6 months
Hospital stay: a week for bronchiolitus.
Little man C
Little man L.
Notice something? Yes, they are still so loving their "hasies" (Bunnies) and still sleeping with them. (See top picture)
Timeline: May 2008
Age of Little man L: 7 months
Hospital stay: 5 days for UTI and an enlarged heart.
I have a feeling that we will be back soon for another little boys' ears - seeing the ENT in a couple of hours.
Edited to add- the 20th is his turn. The one ear is borderline, the other is very bad. Maybe then he will fall less.
