Such a sad sight

Isn't this just the saddest picture? Poor little Seany sleeping off his surgery. It has been a very rough recovery for him (and me!). I would not recommend the surgery to anyone unless it is ABSOLUTELY necessary...the pain my little boy has been in is unbearable to see. On Sunday I thought I was going to have to take him back to hospital as he would not eat or drink anything. His first 'good' afternoon was Monday (yesterday), 5 full days after his surgery. And, his night was still terrible. I went back to work today while he stayed with his Dad. When i visited after work (he will stay with him for a couple of days) he fell asleep in my arms. I can't tell you how many times I have cried in the past week! It is so very difficult to watch your child writhing in pain, full body shaking at the thought of taking a drink of water. I have never wanted anything more than for my son to be free of this pain. As much as I thought I had prepared myself, I had no idea it would be this hard for him.

Poor little thing. And poor you! Once he's back on his feet, you'll definitely need a ladies' night! I'm glad to hear he's getting better!

Hope he's feeling better!

It's nice to "meet" you! I'm planning on having a class in late January for folks in the area. It'll be free (since it's my first one :). I'll let you know details when I get it all firmed up!

Thanks for stopping by my site!

I saw this pic and completely feel your pain! Our baby had surgery at 5 months and it was 4 hours long!! I know how it feels to give them away and then see them be in pain. It breaks your heart!

I hope he's doing better now!
