Sh*tfest 2011

Or, otherwise known as: Braxton's adenotonsillectomy.

We have yet to see him smile like this. 


Nurse:  I just payed $200 for hair just like yours.
B-rox: Oh.  That's a lot of money.  Your hair doesn't look like mine.
Nurse: I know, it's a shame.
B-rox: I have awesome hair. 

Hospital fashionisto.
Don Juan in a hair net.

Shortly after the morphine was given, to bring his heart rate
back into the "not exploding" range.
Crazy swollen face and neck.
I should seriously be given a medal for not crying at all during this whole thing. 
Enjoying the narcotics high.
Morphine, after a nap, is apparently awesome.
Also, swollen tongue.
And, the state of my lap since walking in the door.  
The surgery went pretty well.  We had some RAD issues and they had to pause the surgery to get him breathing correctly again.  However, once he was given morphine in recovery, he's done pretty well.
He's starting to get bored, but really doesn't have the energy to do anything but sit on the couch.  We've already burned through all my "couch activities"...  It's going to be a long rest of the recovery.
