Sickies

Ever since I got back from France, 1 1/2 months ago, I've had this horrid cough. And one after one, each person in my house has had the stomach flu. Paisli had it this weekend, and now Brody, last of all has it! Paisli is on the tail end, but boy am I sick of this crap, literally! Meanwhile, Boen had to get his birthmark removed this past weekend! He had to go to Primary Children's Medical Center to Dr. VanderHooft, who is fabulous! She recommended that is be taken off due to change. Its better to be safe, and not have to worry about it, as far as I'm concerned. So, on friday we went down to SLC and Boen was put under so they could remove it. I felt so bad for him, but he was in good hands. The nurses and specialist and especialy the anesthesiologist, were all fab! They were so personable and kind to Boen and us! They even brought Boen toys and as many slushies as he wanted. I felt very comfortable the entire time, even though any time a child is put under, its terrifying! As far as that goes, everything is good and he is recovering very well! The first day was tough, he was pretty groggy and in pain. That first night I was worried that I should have taken the heavier meds for him. But once he got to sleep and as long as I stayed on top of the tylenol and Ibuprofin he was okay! I just figure he needs to start building a tolerance for pain and he did very well! I'm allergic to all narcotics, and although the pain can seem horrible at the time, you seem to get better quicker! I've done it with al three c/s and survived! Maybe I'm mean, but I didn't want to find out the hard way if he was allergic too! Anyway, he had lots of nice visitors, both sets of grandparents, his aunt Nicole and uncle Derrik, April and Trent and their kids, and his nursery teacher, that brought him treats and toys!




                           


Boen getting his blood pressure taken.


Boen's pre-op pics!

His cutest birthmark! It kind of makes me sad to see it go, because its a part of him! But its too scary to leave it!

So good bye birthmark!


He'll be cute either way!


Right after surgery, as he was coming out of it!
So, sad and feeling pretty bad!



On our way out of the hospital. I got to push him out in this little car!


Boen got to open an early Christmas present for comfort!


His very own Minky Couture blanket that he designed himself. He calls it the BYU blanket! Its navy with white spots and silver back and trim! I love it and sooooo does he!


He hasn't been able to get it wet and had to leave his bandage on for 3 days.


We didn't even peek! But today was the day to take it off! And it hurt him pretty bad, I felt so sorry, but it'll be good to have it get some air!


And here it is! I swear its the size of my c/s scar! Poor guy!


He'll get the stitches out in about a week!


So, glad he is okay! love my boen!
