Levi’s moment

Levi post-op

Levi post-op

 Levi’s out, and the surgery was a success. The hernia was, in fact, incarcerated on one side, meaning it was a bit more complicated than they had expected, but all is well. But, sad to say, you can never go back. We did not head back to CCN – apparently once you are discharged from that golden paradise there is no turning back. So we are in the significantly inferior pediatric ward, where the nurses are kind but the facilities uninspiring, and we are eager to spring our lad as quickly as we can. It’s probably just as well. When I set foot in the CCN earlier today I made a decision that it had been, in fact, a mistake to leave, and I was going to move our entire family back in there. I’m not sure how the other members of said family might have taken the news, and so it is better we don’t cross that bridge. 

I’m temporarily home checking on the other two, who are being well cared for by Jen and Jane, and then I’m back to the hospital. There will be lots of back and forthing today. I threw a bit of a fit at the hospital, by the way. I blathered on about rsv and how my boy couldn’t just be left out in the open. I became, momentarily, that awful parent who loses perspective in defending the interests of his own. But that’s the way it has to be sometimes, I think, with these littler-than-average ones. I scored for Levi some private digs, where he can conduct business meetings and have an eye upon the great city that is already so much happier at word of his impending recovery. 

More some time. Thanks for tuning in!
