Tents Make It Better

Poor Mr. J is trying to smile here but it's not quite working.  Poor boy has gone through the ringer.  Or so he feels.

When one is destined to spend a week or more on the couch recovering from surgery, one must put down stakes and camp out for a bit.

Makes it way more bearable.

Mr. M is also on a couch right by Mr. J but no tent for him.  He is way too miserable.  This has proven to be quite painful for him and the last two days and nights have been spent in a lot of tears.  Last night being the worst.  I'd get one settled down and comfortable finally and the other would wake up crying and in pain.  They both took turns all night.

We're really hoping we've hit the peak of all of this and that the two boys start to come down on the pain levels.

On a funny side note.  Two siblings have been complaining that they want their tonsils out too because they want lots of ice cream, popsicles, treats, etc.  After the yesterday they decided that they wanted to keep their tonsils right where they were.  Not worth it.

    1. Those days on the couch are so long and boring!! Better on the couch than the alternative though. You're keeping your baby safe and that is a big deal momma!

  4. Would a tent help help you to sleep better? We'll craft one for you tonight--a soundproof one. Hopefully we have enough clothes pins and rubber bands to hold it together. ;)

    1. I think I'd do better at a hotel...... just send me to a posh resort somewhere.

  6. Tents always did it for me. I loved them. But you could never trick me into trading surgery for ice cream -

  7. Man, I couldn't agree more. Tents DO make everything better. Even at 40! I need a tent! Good idea! Poor babies. I can't believe 5 days in and still so much pain! I guess though given the area, they are at the "good and raw" stage and it should be all down hill from here. Your poor family is sure upside down right now. Prayers and hugs to you all!

  8. Tents were my absolute favorite as a kid! There was just something so magical and wonderful about them that just seemed to make everything better :)

    Sorry your kiddos had to both have their tonsils out - I hope they feel better soon :)

    1. Our tents growing up were amazing. We'd fill the room with tents making them mansions with several rooms in them.
