A model patient


Camden came through his surgery beautifully. He was his usual, "not a care in the world" self. He took everything in stride. He had no problems when he awoke from surgery and we were asked if they could clone him because he was an excellent patient. His only tears that were shed were when he came home to find Noah gone and he cried because he missed his brother. The doctor said his tonsils and adnoids were huge and he will have a much easier time breathing and eating now that they are gone!!!

The recovery is 7 days with ice cream and soft foods and lots of rest. We have already seen this is going to be difficult in the short 3 hours that we have been home. He doesn't understand why he can't have "normal" food and he has spent little time on the couch resting. He also was back to yelling and rough-housing which we have repeatedly explained is a "no-no". To please his desire to "play", daddy has built him a fort to rest in on the couch (see above). Camden has not once complained about pain and we are shocked but thankful that he is not suffering too much.

Thank you for your calls and prayers, we appreciate them!!!!

So glad all went well. I was praying for your sweet boy. Luke's surgery will be Jan 22. I hope they're able to "clone" Camden by then.
