Z-file: Surgery Sucks Serious Nads
If you are looking for a fluffy post go away. Nothing about Zach was fluffy and right. Everyone who told me "Oh. It's an easy operation. He goes in and comes out. He should be able to go home that day." Or "My child went in and had it done and came out wanting ice cream and we were out the door."
How about this: My son went in and shoved the surgeon out of the way...gave himself the anesthesia which he was impervious to, so he decided to gargle some ice water to numb himself, and then ripped his own Tonsils and Adenoids right out. He hawked up some blood but felt he was good to go and was ready for some Loaded Nacho's.
Of course I am kidding, but hopefully you get the frustration I have been dealing with. I had to call the Doc again tonight because he is not drinking or eating and he has been throwing up. So now its NO food at all and just water or pedialite. If he tosses his meds and water tonight its back to the ER. Bleh.
I have some pictures from the hospital. I stopped taking them for obvious reasons.
That's my baby boy. My Z-man! One day of surgery crumbled this Super-Spirited-Ultra-Positive-Ever-Smiling-Mama.
Hopefully he sleeps peacefully.
Sweet dreams to all.
