so tired

I am so tired. This last week has been exhausting! Pequot Lakes scrappin' was a blast. Friday night I barely got anything accomplished except a few pages and then stayed up until 4:30 am giggling about what?, I can't remember! Lots of fun...

Parker has been up and down. He is not really eating anything so that has been a struggle. He complains that he has a belly ache and that he is going to throw up. Which he hasn't. But we are just dumping pain meds on an empty stomach, that would make me sick too. He isn't sleeping real well at night either. One night this week we didn't wake him up to give him his meds and he spiked a 102.4 temp and was shaking uncontrollably. So we went back to meds every 4 hours. He says the back of his mouth hurts a lot, but that's to be expected. I try brushing his teeth very carefully, but a nasty side effect of the tonsillectomy is (really) bad breath. But we feel we are over the hump with today. The doctor said day 4-5 is the hardest and then it gets better. We just need to watch between days 7-10 for the tonsil scabs to fall off and watch for any bleeding. He is a tough little guy...
