OK. So Tuck is still pretty out of it. They are keeping the pain med on board to ensure he doesnt get overly cranky. He hasnt taken much to drink as of yet....small sips and not one wet diaper. We could go home, however...I was informed that "NO he cant go home, he has Down Syndrome"....his throat might swell from the surgery. Tell me exactly what that is supposed to mean? That typical kids throats dont swell after a tonsil surgery? That, because my son has Down Syndrome, we GET to stay in the hospital, in case?
Whatever the reason, that is fine with me. I will take the added care for the evening. The extra eyes. I was planning an overnight anyway. It just struck me odd that because he had DS he would not be allowed to go home yet......HMMMMM. I guess that means because we have DS we dont have to pay for the night either right? OH, probably doesnt work that way huh?
Anyway. We are still in the PICU. There are no empty beds on the floor so we are just waiting for one to empty. I did get to meet Zach and Candi today. Zach is a pistol I think, even stuck to his bed he is rolling his eyes at his mom. (He sure has his her wrapped around his finger.)
Thank you Kim for the dinner and gift, also Ms Katy for coming by to see us. Also to Grandma T and Kathy for coming by and hanging out. Also a thank you to everyone who has given us time out of your day with prayers for Tucker. (Thanks Alisha for updating for me)
