Fun with the Doctor

Scratch test at the allergy doctor. Too much fun!

Monday, August 2, 2010


So sleepy from all the meds. Next door a child is screaming and
crying. I'm glad those days are over for us. I want to stick my head
in the door and say, "it seems bad now but believe me... It will all
be okay. Hang in there."

In Recovery

Pudding is the magic cure-all. We will wait here for about an hour
then head out.

Gross Picture

Avert your eyes if you are squeamish.

This is a "before" picture. I need to Google what normal vocal chords
look like so you can see the difference. Doc says he is maintaining
about the same. More vocal burden than airway issue. That's the good
news AND the bad news.

Waiting for Doc

Surgery is done. Waiting for the doc to bring results.

Wheeling Away

There goes my boy... Off for another surgery. I stood in the hall and
watched him wheel away. I'm sad but fine. It's weird to be both at the
same time but I am.

Sweet, Sweet Boy

Meds Kicking In

Meds are kicking in and he takes a snooze. The procedure is scheduled
to start in 30 min.

Video Game

Thank you starlight starbright for providing video games for kids in

Dizzy Pill

He just got his pre-med which he refers to as "the dizzy pill".


I can tell that soon he will no longer let me blog about him at the
hospital. Also he won't let me get in bed with him and have a nap. The
nurse said he is being selfish. I agree.

Blood Pressure

My little "baby" is 4'6" and weighs 83 pounds. Holy cow!!!! When did
THAT happen?


I embarrass my son by taking a picture of him in front of Donnell, the
admissions guy.


The courtyard looking down from the waiting room.

Going Up

Giant baby

When we come into the lobby there is a giant baby to greet is.

Sunrise and the Capitol

I wish I could zoom in on this. The Capitol looms nearby but you can't
tell from this picture. We have arrived at the hospital.

Hitting the Road

On the way to the hospital.
