Just a Quick Post

to tell you that Evan's surgery for his tonsils and adenoids went well.
I am so proud of him! He handled everything so calmly.
He is in quite a bit of pain off and on, but that is to be expected.
Frozen fruit bars and jello seem to be his favorite and easiest to eat right now.
Although he was starving yesterday at lunch and ate five pancakes and scrambled eggs!
Don't think that is happening today though.
My sweet mother-in-law brought made pudding and grape jello for him.
Our neighbors and good friends Kate and Sam brought down a balloon and book for him last night and it made him so happy :)
Another neighbor gave him a card.
Plus my parents are coming by today later for a bit to cheer him up.

So we are getting by and doing well.
It's just hard to see him in pain, and I am happy to do what I can to help and take care of him.
Lots of Battle Nation matches on the ipads together to distract him!

And I will say, so glad Mike was able to get the day off yesterday and be in town for the surgery and just to be here in general. When Erin had surgery on her foot, he was out of the country in Canada which wasn't easy. He is able to be here in town until next Monday, and that is a huge help!

Hope all is well with you and I know I won't be checking back in until next Monday.
Just too busy being a mom and nurse.
Thanks for stopping by today though and I hope you have a great weekend!
