Post Op Cody
















What a little trooper!!! I HATE HATE HATE loosing control, having to turn over the reigns to someone else and just sit and twiddle my thumbs, but I had too. Cody was only a tiny bit nervous about it was so good, he just sat there joking with the hospital staff and cracking people up all morning. He was even nice to them and asked them politely to "please don't stick that IV in me again, it doesn't feel nice" lol, when they had to stick him over and over. He was kidding with me that he looked like a cyborg or a robot with as many cords as he had coming off him. He liked it.
I barely had time to sit down in the waiting room for 20 minutes before the surgeon came out to tell me he was done. TADA! so fast! 45 minutes later and he was sitting up asking for a Popsicle...PHEW! He's been soooooooooooo good! I mean...WOW hasn't whined AT ALL about pain. He's in heaven right now, all snuggle down in my big bed, with the "special quilt" and playing online kids games at goldfish.com....mauwing down on Popsicles, jello, ice cream and chicken noodle soup. I am almost on the verge of having to strap the little monkey down and put a muzzle on him..lol he won't stop getting up and trying to walk around and do what he normally would do, and the drugs make him bump into walls and slip off the bed all funny so I'm constantly on his case. As you can see I added the picture of his tonsils. Dr. Teral was cool enough to have his surgical nurse take a picture of them for him. His tonsils were abnormally large even for an adult man. WOW......freaking massive! Lucky his adenoids didn't have to be fully taken out, just shaved back some so that should cause less pain for him. Even though he looks pained in the last two pictures he's actually smiling much more than frowning.

I'm very lucky that Jon lives here and was finally willing to help, he came to the hospital and got the prescriptions he was going to need and went and picked them up for me so I wouldn't have to take Cody out later when he wasn't feeling so hot, and he took Michael and Matthew to his house for the night so I can concentrate on Cody. Some days I'm amazed at how well we work together and other days I'm impressed I don't run him over with Matty's scooter..lol..jk! But none the less I'm thankful for his help. Thanks for all the "don't worry Rach, he'll be fine" emails....lol

I'm glad all went well with the surgery! It's always so scary to have to take your child to the hospital. Hope you're coping. :)

WHEW! Glad to hear all went well. He is so handsome but those tonsils are really quite disgusting (in a totally cool way).
