We could not believe how fast they do it now. They had warned us that when the kids wake up they often wake up crying. Osher was silent. He did not cry once. He was such a tough little man. I was so proud of him today!

Right now he is resting comfortably and taking advantage of the unlimited freeze pop, jello, ice cream, and other soft yummy treats policy that has been temporarily put in place. His sister has not been shy in taking advantage of it as well
He's quite the trooper!

I had mine out when I was 3 1/2. Back then you had to stay overnight in the hospital before and after. My lingering memory of the event was the unlimited strawberry ice cream with which I was indulged.

Wine is the food that completes the meal.
