x update

hendrix's surgery went well. pre-op was great-- he was happy and let them do whatever to him (plus they had doped him up a little, so he was silly and loopy). but since he woke up from the anesthesia, he's been crying a lot. we had a long day with a sleepy boy who was in too much pain to sleep for very long. he would sleep for a few minutes, wake up and cry, then sleep, then cry... pretty much all day. about 4:30 he finally got off the couch and surprised me when he walked into the kitchen to find me. he's been drinking well all day, but is hungry-- for popcorn!! (which he obviously can't eat after getting his tonsils out!). he scarffed down some yogurt and mac and cheese, and hopefully tomorrow he will have forgotten about the popcorn.

It's been a long emotional day. it's heartbreaking to see him go through this. and heartbreaking to hear him beg me to not feed the baby, or put the baby down. and heartbreaking to see quinn try and cope with me giving constant attention to veda and hendrix since there is little left over for her. i know that hendrix has about a week of recovery, but i'm still praying for even a slightly easier day tomorrow.

wow... after re-reading this, it sounds sad. we're doing fine!! hendrix will continue to do better and better, and i'll recover from the emotionally draining day i've had :) everything's better after getting some sleep-- here's hoping that i get some!!

I'm glad X is okay. If Quinn needs a play date, I can make that happen! Let me know.

I'd send some popcorn but that would sure hurt a raw throat. I wish I was there to help out. Hang in there Am!
