I've also been playing nurse.

Not THAT kind of nurse (get your mind out of the gutter). Although....naughty nurse might be a little fun for our upcoming Anniversary....but I digress. I've been playing nurse to my husband and son since they both had surgery in the last 5 days. That is where all of my energy has been directed, keeping them healthy. 

Both surgeries were planned, and neither were life threatening, but recovery can be a bear. I was expecting a little more pain and suffering coming from my husband (sorry Seth, but I was) but his surgery went smoothly, and pretty painless (and NO it wasn't a little snip, snip type of procedure). He was the ideal patient. Even brought ME a beer on Saturday, possibly trying to get me drunk.

Colin's surgery went well also, and all he has been doing is sleeping. He's played a little Wii, and watched some TV, but mostly he's been quiet as a mouse (so unlike him) and not just because his throat hurts. It has been hard to get him to take his medicine and drink fluids, but I think that will change here soon. Threatening to take him back to the hospital has worked a bit. Hey! It's the truth...if he gets dehydrated, we have to take him back for IV fluids. Sometimes the brutal truth works the best.  Oh, and thanks to Seth for being a great Dad and helping out with the late night and medicine dosings. It helps so much to have a partner in all of this.

I'm gonna get back to playing nurse....AGAIN! Not THAT kind of nurse.
