One down…

The wee small boy was in hospital for his first operation today.  All went well and he was done and home again by lunch time.

Thankfully cannulas were not required.  I am beyond grateful for this.

fake sleeping…note the half-scoffed biscuit!

He was brave and funny during the whole adventure…teasing the nurses by pretending still to be asleep.  Promise of a Cadbury’s Fudge at home soon put paid to those shennagins.

We are now waiting for his next hospital date which will be to have his squints corrected.  I think I’m going to be a whole lot more sanguine about that now I know he’s fine with anaesthetic.

And whilst he’s had a little snooze this afternoon I’ve finally made it into the sewing loft and have made a start on paper fitting the pattern for The Husband’s shirt.

Next stop…the toile!  See….slow sewing…doing it right.  It won’t last! 😉

    What a relief to have the first one over with, it’s so much worse putting our little ones through it. Looks like he has found the perfect way to recover

    Oh Evie I can’t imagine how hard that must have been! But if he’s teasing nurses he definitely is fine. Love the pretend sleeping whilst hanging on to his biscuit!

    Wow, that had to be really tough. Glad he’s made it through swimmingly, and I can imagine what a relief it is to feel more confident about the anesthesia part of it. Speedy recovery, little guy!

    Evie this is wonderful that he handled it so well (and you did too!). Thank goodness for biscuits and snow! I’m very very glad it went so well.

    • Thank you so much. This is the boy who would scream for an hour (non-stop) if he had to have his hair cut. It was a nightmare. It’s nothing short of miraculous that he was so sanguine. I’m incredibly proud of him.

  11. Glad to see everything went well. Sounds like a funny little boy…le beau au bois dormant!
