I wanted to drop a quick line to let everyone know how little man is doing after his tonsil removal surgery Friday. This weekend was rough, he slept mostly. Friday he was really incoherent as the anesthesia wore off and he started to feel "un-numb". He ran a low grade fever thru Sat. Then Sat., he seemed to be more respondant to trying some jello. Red was his favorite flavor. Then, he discovered applesauce. How a 4 year old can survive on applesauce (multiple mini-cups) for 2 1/2 days is beyond me. He's never gotten sick and vomited like they assured me he most likely would do. God is in the details....He's also decided that he doesn't want any popsicles or icecream. I don't understand this, but I'm not questioning. In the meantime, mommy and daddy are making up for his lack of icecream consumption. Gotta watch that, huh?
Luke's been watching lots of cartoons. If I see another episode of Wow, Wow, Wubzy, Max and Ruby, Backyardigans or Go Diego Go, I'm going to have to be committed. For now, it makes him happy and helps with his mental state of mind keeping him from focusing on the pain. It's funny how his little voice has changed. He's a tenor now. I got so use to hearing his garbled marbles voice. Kinda wierd to hear this new tone. It's so much less "Charlie Brown's teacher-ish".
Today, he and I ventured out for the first time since Fri. and went to Target. He wanted to exchange two birthday gifts that he rec'd for one's that "didn't scare him" (his words) Evidently, The Hulk and Batman are bad, scary guys and he told me he didn't "wike" (like) them. Sorry, whoever gave him those. We returned them and he got himself a Chick Hicks car (from the movie Cars). He told the cashier that this one didn't scare him. She was like, "Uh, oh kay whatever".
I'm so proud of my brave boy. He's really been a trooper. One last funny story. While at Target we perused the aisles for items that he might be able to eat without pain. I spied the soup aisle had "Lightining McQueen" chicken noodle soup. The noodles are shaped like cars. He saw it too and said, "Mommy can I get that soup, It's alright, it won't hurt my FEELINGS". I laughed and kissed him on the nose. He's so cute. So, for now the pain in the back of his throat is affectionately called his "feelings". Too funny, huh? We also got some more apple sauce, cinnamon and strawberry flavored this time. I told him these new flavors wouldn't hurt his feelings either. He obliged. Anyone wanting to partake of some sugary delights we have about 4 gallons of icecream and a box of Dora popsicles that need to be consumed.
One more quick story about how God is so in the details. After running to Hobby Lobby in Allen for a quick item I needed for necklace making we attempted the Chickfila drive thru in Allen. So freakin many cars I said, "Luke we'll go to the one by our house in McKinney". We left and headed home. As I pulled up in the drivethru to place our order I noticed a friend of mine who moved to Iowa last year. I called her cell phone and after getting our order I ran inside to say Hi. Turns out she's in town on vacation. Back here to visit friends while her hubby who works for John Deere attends a required training in CO for 3 wks. It was great to see her and her kids. Hi LaNae.
God is SO in every detail of our life.
Back to bed now, had to administer Luke's antibiotic.
