Direct Hit

So it looks like that surgical strike scored.  The surgeon said The Snake’s tonsils were “grungy.”  The procedure was super quick, and he was a little disoriented and upset when he first woke up.  They gave him some good pain meds and he quickly settled and slept for awhile.  Tonight he was actually pretty chipper.  He ate  4 popsicles, 3 fudge bars and 2 bowls of ice cream.  He’d actually like to go to his Valentine Party tomorrow, but I know that won’t play out.

He really was a trouper and survived the long fast until his surgery at 10am.  Luckily Adam managed to get relieved from his surgical duties to be around.  And the Fruit Babies cooperated while at the hospital, although it would have been nice if they’d slept through the night last night (no such luck).  Basically, a smooth experience.  We’ll see if the recovery is as simple.

    Glad to hear it went well! Can I have surgery and come to your house? The post-op diet sounds delish!
