Good morning. I am really trying to keep myself from freaking out. The thought of D getting anesthesia is driving me nuts. Yesterday went from bad to worse but then things turned around and we ended on a good note. Here is the thing, my child can hold onto his poop and not let go if he thinks that he is going to have a loose movement. Well that is what he was doing the past 2 days. After 3 doses of Milk of Magnesia, the little monkey still had not taken a poo. He was doing the poo-poo dance all around the house but just kept fighting it. I called the doctor and was advised to give him a laxative suppository. Oh that went over well. It did, in fact, work and then the rest of the day went well. He hates lime Jell-O even though it was his flavor of choice. I did manage to get him to eat a little of it and one whole Italian Ice. Other than that it was liquids ALL day. I have now starved my child more times this summer than we have seen the sun. After his procedures today he has requested a bagel with cream cheese. I am going to find him the biggest most delicious bagel I can while we are in Boston today.
I am keeping my composure so that he does not get nervous – he is actually ok with the whole thing. Yes, he knows exactly what is happening today – the scope down his throat, up his bum all while he is asleep. I was not going to tell him, I mean he is only 4 and I thought that he might be scared. Well he kept asking about it and Charlie spilled the beans the other night while I was at Target. I am very proud of him for being so brave. Mommy on the other hand – no so brave. When it comes to my little sweet tart I just want to hold and keep him safe. I have to trust these doctors to take care of him today. That is kind of tough for me as I am do not trust that easily.
It was not so long ago when D was just a little itty peanut and I did hold him all day.
This is my absolute favorite photo of us.
So I have been up for quite a while, ventured out for a 6.5 mile run and now just needing to do a little venting – thanks for listening.
On a foodie note, I made some yummy rice wrappers last night for dinner. These things are so easy to make. I filled the rice wrappers with red pepper, zucchini, lettuce and avocado. I ate 3 for dinner and saved three for today.
Inside shot – simple ingredients but oh so delicious.
I also ate a salad with my 3 rolls. It contained lettuce, red pepper, zucchini, cottage cheese and a PB2 drizzle.
I supposed I should hop in the shower and try to eat some breakfast. My guys are still sound asleep – D is actually still in his own bed. That is a rare happening – he really must be whipped out. I will fill you in on the details from the tests later. I hope you have a great Friday.
