Grommets take 2, done

My boy had his second set of grommets inserted today. The procedure was quick, and he seems to be doing much better at the moment. He was quite out of it, with a whole screaming and crying match afterward, that felt as though it lasted for much longer than it probably did. He complained of some pain this afternoon, but ended up having quite a good nap. Will likely keep him home tomorrow, probably just the overprotective mom in me :). On another note... We did a 5k walk for diabetes on the weekend. MIT was fun. The walk has grown so much over the past few years. It is huge now! Lost my phone at some point though, which is quite a pain. Hope to have everything sorted and have a new one by the end of this week. And is it just me, or is this a bit weird.... For a "snack" after his procedure he got - a can of coke, a bowl of icecream, and a bowl of jelly. I was expecting a yoghurt and couple of biscuits, which it what he got last year, and what a friend got for her 4 year old a few weeks back. I think the "food " may have been meant for someone else - like perhaps someone having a tonsilectomy (there was a girl in the ward that had one done). Or else I am a bit disturbed that a hospital would have a catering company give a two year old a huge can of coke as a drink! And then considering I told him he is allergic to sodium benzoate too - which is in coke!

Sorry you lost your phone. these days we store so much on our phone that when you loss it, its a pain to restore all those contacts etc.

I am glad the walk has grown, Diabetes needs as much awareness as Cancer and AIDS.

Let's hope the hospital made a mistake and they are not giving 2yr old's a can of coke and ice cream. especially since the little man has an allergy to Sodium benzoate.
