Surgery update and FFF

Ugh! Today pea had a very ROUGH post surgery day. He was in a lot of pain and definitely not himself. Very weird since yesterday he was running around like crazy! He has a follow-up appointment with the surgeon today so hopefully he will be back on the upswing. My poor baby!

In the meantime, it's Friday! This weeks FFF theme is Oh Give Thanks. Check out Hannah's blog HERE.

Here is a pic from our hike in the woods a couple weeks ago. We had so much fun! Pea is definitely entering the pretend play phase. He was pretending this long stick was a horse and we all HAD to ride it together. Of course, I would sneak off the horse to take some pictures, but I was quickly told to "hop on board, mommy. come on. come on." I am sure we were quite a sight riding our horse through the woods! I just love this age and I am thankful that being a parent allows me to be a kid again, too!

And, the only adoption related news we have at this point is we have submitted our initial application and are waiting for the preliminary approval. Yes, I told you we are just at the beginning stages! This process is sooooo much different so we have a lot to learn.

Yes, the second or third day was the worst for Reese when he had the "boy surgery" I bet the energy came from the anesthisia. Happens a lot!!!

Hope he is better today!!

I remember leaving Reese in the OR too. It is never easy. Doesn't matter what type of surgery it is, it's our babies!!

Praying all is well soon! THe "boy surgery" was a pretty fast recovery for us, too, so hopefully your little guy is soon back to his normal self.

Cute of the horses in the woods, too!

So sorry that Pea is in a tough place - hopefully that means that today will be the worst of it and you can have an easier tomorrow.

Tylenol and motrin alternating- do it no matter what the surgeon told you.

Mine told me Bug would not be in pain the day after, so to stop the meds. I learned the hard way- keep him doses for 3 days and then back off so he could tell me if he was in pain.

Love to you,
Deb
