That pig is so gross, and if I'd have known we were going to be dragging it around so many places this week I would have washed it. Oh, heavens. I'm shocked they let him take it into surgery, there's nothing sterile about it!
I was so exhausted and relieved last night after we got back to our room that I just completely zonked out. It was Midnight one minute, and 6am the next. Honestly, I don't even really remember laying down, and when I woke up I couldn't figure out where I was. Followed that up with a full shower and
fresh Monday's clothes, and I don't feel too shabby. Second day hand soap hair is definitely not as fabulous as the first, in case you were wondering.
The boy is in for a slow recovery, if today is any indicator. He woke up chipper as could be, hopped out of bed, and tried to walk across the floor to the potty! He wears out really fast though, and isn't eating or drinking very consistently, yet. We think he was probably in so much pain with that abscess, that he probably feels relatively great even though he's got an open wound the size of a silver dollar in the back of his tiny little throat, and two missing tonsils. He's certainly not looking sick like he was. The doctor warned us he might spike another fever immediately following the procedure, and he sure did. But, since then he's been fever free which has to make him feel better.
I said today that I thought it'd take me a good 6 or 7 days to really miss my regular routine. That might not be quite true. It's the middle of Day 4, and I'm really antsy to see my other little chickens. I'm not bored here, and I love the quiet. I could easily sit in this chair and watch my little boy sleep for hours on end. I'm not worried about the other four, I know they're having fun and being well taken care of. Thanks, Aunt Misty! But, I miss them and I'm almost willing to go against my better judgement and get us out of here tonight, just to get back. Almost. I already said we were staying, so there's nothing I can do now but wait another night :)
