Busy! It was a jam packed five days of very little relaxation. I don't know where I ever got the idea that holidays are relaxing. Clearly a false interpretation. The majority of our five days off work were fun .... but busy!
My parents came in to town Wednesday night to spend Thanksgiving with us. We headed to Leavenworth for dinner. To our surprise the town was already lit up for Christmas ... Love it! ... and we enjoyed a yummy dinner at South.
The "traditional" picture. I'm sure my Mom has these same olive pics of me at age four. ... and yes, Caden raked in his jammies and put on different jammies for dinner. It was just that kind of stay home day ...
Saturday Dan worked on more finishing touches in our house. Our new pantry is installed ... now to find the time to fill it up (one more thing on the to-do list) ... of course Mr. C was right there to help.
Sunday we headed to Seattle. We stayed at Uncle Scot's Sunday night. Headed to the mall for dinner and a little retail therapy.
Caden proved me wrong and did amazing! Dan was more hungry and whiney for food then Caden was. Caden only got whiney a few times and that wasn't about food but was about how much longer he had to wait. They didn't take him back to anesthesia until a little after 1:00. Superstar!
Watching a little TV.
He said his head hurt and he looked pretty rummy. I asked if he could have Tylenol and the nurse said he had a dose at 12:30. He was still with Dan and I at 12:30 - he was not given Tylenol. It was around 1:10 that I went back with him to the operating room. She then said, "well they must have given it to him through an IV". I said, "he didn't have an IV". Then she said, "well maybe it was a suppository". Bottom Line ... I'm not sure when or if he received the Tylenol. This is why I preach stay with your kiddo as much as you can while they are in the hospital ... only you can be the best advocate for your child. AHH!!! (Blood is boiling again!)
Anyway, He fell back asleep for about a half an hour, woke up on his own and looked better. One of his first requests was a Top Pot doughnut ....
So ...Of course that was our first stop once we were discharged!
There is more decorating to be done this weekend ~ I'm in denial that we are right smack in the middle of the Holiday Season. CRAZY!
