All done

Surgery at 7:30, out at 8:30, ice cream at 11:30, home by 1.

The beginning and end of his hospital experience--the parts in the playroom with the table set up with Thomas the Tank Engine trains and tracks--were a blast. The part where he woke up from anaesthesia with an IV and a pulse-ox monitor--not so much.

They're both napping now, and I thought I would do some writing, but instead I think I'm going to join them.

Thanks for all your good wishes. Full round-up to follow, when I get a chance.

At last! I can get my Barak and Iyyar fix again :)

But there's nothing like coming back to a blog after a long while (thank you for the invite!) and the first thing I see is "Surgery at 7:30"

Ack! What a relief (for me. I'm not the imma.) to see it was tubes and adenoids. And that Barak ended his experience with Thomas! Yay Thomas! :)

btw, when are you posting your pizza recipe? ;)

Holy Cow! I have been blog absent for just a few days and see what I miss!!! I hope everyone is doing better and that you are all getting lots of rest. What about Iyyar?

I had always thought--from watching _ER_ and other medical shows--that it was a pulse-socks monitor!!

Very happy to hear all is well.
