We ventured out to the "Masshole" gathering at Donna and Bob's house yesterday. It was great to get to meet some new people and to get to see others again. Unfortunately, we did not get to stay as long as we would have liked because Alex got sick while we were there so we had to leave early. We wanted to thank Donna and Bob for all of their help while we were there.
Alex was doing well by the time we got home and he took another dose of medicine. He is still asleep right now (after waking up during the night to take his meds again). Recovery from this surgery is kind of like having an infant in the house again. We have to give him pain medicine every three to four hours through out the day and night. The night doses end up taking about 20 to 30 minutes because you have to wake him up and then argue with him to get him to take the medicine because he is half asleep and hurting. He has been doing a great job of handling all of this, but is very ready for it to be over. He has told me a couple of times that he wishes he hadn't had his tonsils taken out because he misses hard food and running. Hopefully we are on the down hill side of his recovery now.
