Just to let you know I will be absent for a while. My lovely Patrick went into hospital this week for surgery - nothing too major but a big deal for a 12 year old. Although the operation went well he is in a lot of pain and keeping me busy. He is on the mend though and being a good lad !
He wore Karol-Anns cap to go into hospital as he said he was having a bad hair day - I told him that was the least of his troubles that day ;-0.
DH Jason came with us as one of us had to be with Patrick as he was anaethetised. As I am a bit emotional to say the least Jason had agreed to do it as I didn't want Patrick to see me blubbing just before he went to sleep. The day before however Jason had tripped whilst out walking and as we were waiting for Patrick to go to the operating theatre I noticed Jason was wincing and could tell he was in pain. So I told him he had better go to get it checked out in case it was broken. So off he limped to Accident and Emergency department and I went with Patrick. I held it together til his eyes shut after the anaesthetic injection but then I was off. The nurse gave me a hug and said most parents have a weep at this point - quite upsetting seeing their child being put to sleep. Anyway after the longest hour of my life I was paged and went to recovery room to see him. All was fine and he was discharged 5 hours later.
He is uncomfortable but not complaining. We have a nurse coming to check him tomorrow but everything seems to be healing nicely. He has holed up in our lounge and is sleeping on the sofa as he is unable to climb up his high-sleeper bed. He has his quilts I made him and says he is having good sleeps at night.
Turned out Jason has badly torn ligaments and tissue damage. And what with me and my crappy shoulder it's like a doctors waiting room here - lol !
Will be back soon - I am managing a little quilting and trying to keep up with blog reading although probably not doing a lot of commenting. Bye for now xxx
