he hates his life

They haven't taken my wifi from me, thank goodness. It's been a Godsend to be able to download Dora and Super Why when there's absolutely nothing on for W to watch. Our iTunes bill is going to be large this week. You would think that since this is a Children's hospital, they would have more kid's channels to watch, or at least have Sprout, but they don't and for some reason, W really doesn't want to watch HGTV or the Food Network. Go figure.

Anyway, the kid is in agony and hates everything. No is the answer of choice to everything. He won't eat and won't drink. The not eating isn't so much of an issue but the no drinking is a huge problem. I've offered him everything they have here and he doesn't want any of it. He hasn't drank anything since 6am yesterday and it's getting frustrating. He has to drink and keep it down for us to be able to go home.

I know he's tired because I'm beyond tired. They should make prisoners sleep in hospital chairbeds as part of their punishment. I'm sure their beds are much more comfortable than these chair things. So it looks like we are in for another day of cat naps and negotiations to get him to drink. I'm about to pull out the big guns and start the bribery.

Joey (now 6) had this same surgery when he was about 4 yrs old. And omg was it rough. THe ONLY thing he would take were popsicles. He would cry and scream and just make it worse. I feel for you guys cause I know how hard it is. BUt just remember tis too shall pass!
