Well I have to say that the recovery from Tagg's tonsillectomy and adenoidectomy has thoroughly sucked.  It's every bit as hard and pitiful as I was warned.  He had to come home with an IV for fluids, which he receives twice a day via me.  A home health nurse stops by each morning to check on him.  I'm not sure if she'll be coming over the holiday weekend or not.  Bad timing I guess.  It's pretty nerve racking to be the one to hook him up each time, needles and such make me so nervous!

Once we're on the road to recovery I will do a post with all of our pre and post-op information for anyone else going through this in the future to reference.  I feel like information kept me feeling prepared and I know we'll be out of the trenches soon.

Our cars got broken into the night of Tagg's surgery and they stole a checkbook and some change.  We're in the process of switching all of our accounts so I'm not sure if I'll be able to take part in any labor day sales or not.  I'm fairly certain everything is frozen right now.  Or maybe Matthew just told me that because he knows I'm spending my days, and nights, laying in bed with Tagg and the temptation to shop away my time is oh so great.

  1. Next week will be here before you know it - Tagg will be recovered and life will be back to normal. Poor little guy!!!

  2. I hope he feels better soon. Kids are so resilient!

  3. I am so in love with the print over his bed!! Can you tell me where it's from?

  4. Oh my goodness, poor thing! I had that when I was 8 and it was TERRIBLE. Hope he feels better soon!

  5. So sad but still so cute. Wishing Tagg a speedy recovery and some rest for you!

  6. Ohhh Poor little Tagg. I had the same surgery when I was 6. It was awfull... the only good thing was the amounth of ice pops I had to eat... It hurts and you just feel so miserable. I remember very well the feeling. I'm sure he will too as an adult. But he will be fine and you're the best amazing mother he could have. Big hug to you and hope he feels better soon!

  7. I'm glad he made it thru everything ok. And hopefully the healing will get better with each passing day. Hang in there mamma.
