So, my son (I really have to come up with a nickname for him & my hubby for on here) got his tonsils and adenoids out last Monday. The surgery went well, the recovery is still going on and I thought it was getting better but he woke up at 3 am last night. We have so far had only 1 night (Saturday) that he slept through the night, and he didn't fall asleep until 9:30 that night, though he was in bed at 7:45. To say I've been tired is an understatement. I've been living on sleep patterns I left behind when my son stopped demanding an overnight feeding at 5 months.
His pain level got better, now it's worse, which we were informed would happen. Apparently the Tylenol with Codeine they prescribed for him tastes awful though so he'd rather be in pain than take his medicine, so it's so much fun for me. He's finally starting to eat solid foods though.
Anyway, that's really my week, I cater to my 5 year old, beg him to take his medicine, when that didn't work we resorted to bribery (he got 2 Lego Star Wars sets for taking his medicine without fighting me), make lots of food that he ate maybe one bite of and ask him every 5 minutes to take a sip of something to drink. Then, when we'd get him to bed between 7:30 and 8, I have been so exhausted I've been in bed shortly after him. I finally got some laundry done on Friday and over the weekend, but I'm so far behind my basement has more clothes than our closets.
I have him home from school again today because he didn't sleep through the night, hopefully by Wednesday he will have a good night's sleep. On top of all of this, my husband leaves Friday evening for a trip with his ski club to Okemo VT. I so hope my son can go to school on Wednesday, just for our sanity...
