Feeling A Little Better and Cross Country

Buster is starting to feel a little better. He's eating and drinking pretty good. He thought he'd help out by washing out his medicine cups and droppers.

He is still crying off and on in the night and waking up very sore and agitated in the morning. He's usually good to go as soon as he has some tylenol in him and as long as he has it in him he is fine.

We are a little concerned because his speech is not very clear when he tries to talk to us.
We never had a problem understanding him before. I called his ENT Dr. and they said that's normal, but let us know if it get worse. Not sure how to take that.

Bunny and Bubbas are running cross county this year and really enjoying it. Bunny gives it her all and with Bubbas it just depends on the mood he's in.

Tator is also running, but she recently has gotten very violent in the car and this race was about 45 minutes away so she wasn't allowed to come.

One Unhappy Camper

Buster had his tonsils and adenoids out and tubes put in his ears on Monday.
It has been a long week. None of the kids have ever had surgery before, so I am new to this.
He had tubes put in his ears a couple years ago, but that is the extent of surgery we have ever been through.
He's coming around. Tuesday was rocky, her wouldn't drink or take any of his medicine so I was very worried he was going to get dehydrated. Wednesday went better he's drinking and eating a little bit. He even played cars with Bubbas for awhile.

They gave him some medicine to make him relax before they took him back. He started to act very goofy. He kept trying to eat the bar on the side of the bed.


When he woke up after surgery he was very upset so they gave him more medicine to put him back to sleep. Then expected us to wake him up and make him drink. We were not real happy.

I'm sure under any other circumstances he would have loved a ride in a wheelchair.

When we got home he attempted to eat a popsicle. But he was just too tired.
