The cough before the storm

The day after Nathaniel's surgery, Nathaniel, Audrey & I met up with some of my co-workers for a birthday lunch. Nathaniel had been very sleepy all morning but was doing ok. At lunch, he was very mellow, even put his head down and dozed off a bit.

As soon as we got out to the parking lot he had that weird cough and then proceeded to puke EVERYWHERE! What a mess.

I'm thankful he had the courtesy to us & those around us to hold off till we were outside. Such a considerate young boy.

the Perfect little Patient

Nathaniel had a huge day today - he had his adenoids removed and tubes put in. We told him the night before that he didn't have to go to school because he had a special appointment at the hospital with the ear doctor.

The first thing he said when he woke up today was asking if he was still going to go see the doctor, when I told him yes, he said "I'm not going to be scared". He was psyched to wear his jammies & slippers outside the house and was sure to tell everyone at Dunkin Donuts that he was 'still sick'.

He picked out orange flavor sleeping scent and they bring a red wagon for him to play in and be wheeled around in. They gave him special driving gloves too. The procedure was fast and he recovered back in the room, sleeping on my lap for another 45 minutes. When he woke up, you'd never know that he had anything done. He asked for a popcicle and juice, then wolfed down a donut.

If he does this well with surgery, imagine what Disney would be like!
