Last week, Oliver had a little day surgery.
For a kid that complains about a paper cut for three days, he took the entire thing like a champ – we learned and talked about the procedure for several days leading up to, there were no nerves the morning of the surgery, and very little complaining after the fact.
He spent the majority of three days on the couch and has pretty much taken care of the stitches on his own, which I think is so grown up for a seven year old.
The day after the surgery, Emery came home with a bag full of cards from every kid in his class. He was SO excited to get these and looked over each and every one. The kids did a great job personalizing them for him. I was impressed that his teacher took the time.
Hopefully we have no more need for the IWK but I can’t say enough about the care he received. The whole experience really could not have gone better, which makes me really thankful.
