trooper.

ozzie had his tonsils and adenoids removed yesterday. he did well and charmed the nurses with his smile and everyone commented on his lovely soft curly locks. however, he was quite offended when one nurse called him a girl... and right after she did, he looked at me with this dumbfounded look on his face and said to me, "i'm NOT a girl!"

maybe it's time for a haircut.

following his brief time in the operating room, there were many tears in the post anesthesia care unit, which was from gas build up in his belly. but once he got that all out, he downed another popsicle and some sips of water and we were off to the next recovery area. he did well there: napped, drank more water, ate more popsicles and then the nurse cleared him and we were set to leave. of course he requested a wheelchair ride down to the lobby. who wouldn't?

he napped in the car en route home, we arrived mid afternoon or so. pain meds and antibiotics in him and he seemed like an ideal patient. very calm and sleepy. however, he had a rough night. took me back to newborn baby days. he slept in our bed. up every 4 hours. and we left a night light on so i could see what i was doing. he's been nauseous but relatively happy. he's watched some mighty machines this morning and talked to me about what the trucks were doing. but now he's rolled back over and has fallen asleep again. as long as i keep him comfortable and encourage him to eat popsicles, drink juice or eat jello..well, i'm hoping today is the worst and it's all downhill from here.

we've had many get better soon messages, as well as an outpouring of love and support. we all know he's a tough kid and hopefully he'll have a real quick recovery. thanks again to everyone, your messages really do mean a lot.
