In and Out

Can I just say that I love Children's Hospitals?
As opposed to trying to treat small people in facilities designed and structured for adults?

The Captain is now minus his Shrek-like appendage.
He smells like eugenol.
He's wildly moody, and napping like a champ.

Last night Sir O assaulted the Captain in his crib, then hollered for me to come take a picture. God obviously thinks it's important for the Captain to learn patience at an early age.

We packed up and left insanely early this morning to drop Sir O off with a babysitter. Both boys were troopers.

Poor kid had no idea what was coming.
If you look close in this not-quite-focused photo, you can see the Captain's new teeth.


This is the only photo I got of the Captain in his hospital gown. Clearly they don't see enough undersized 6 month olds to have anything the right size. This is exactly what his face looked like coming out of anesthesia. Oddly enough, this photo was taken pre-anesthesia.
Sleep away, my dear. Hopefully one of these times you startle awake you will be done with the terrified scratchy wailing. It makes me unbearably sad. Now I just have to figure out how to get Sir O to leave that steri-strip alone for a week.

Hooray for uneventful surgeries! Glad it went well. Read your vacation post and got really, really tired. You are a trooper! Had a very pleasant dream the other night that I got to meet you in person and you were a blast.
Enjoy the weekend!

Awww, what a trooper. My nephew had a thingy growing out of his neck similar to the shrek appendage. He came through his surgery like nothing happened to him. I'm sure the Captain will be the same. They're so resilient at this age.

I'm anxious to know what doctors charge these days for a 30 second surgery using toenail clippers. I'm guessing total charges for doctor, hospital, and anethesiologist will be in the low 5 figures.

Children's hospitals are the greatest. I'm glad everything went well! Have I told you how beautiful your boys are? Well, there you go. I just did. They are so adorable.
