This is the question my brave boy woke up and asked me at 3am the morning after his surgery.
Funny the things that go through kids minds hey.
As you all would have figured out by now Sams operation went very well. He was so brave which is more than i can say for this little chickadee (blubbering,cranky mess of a woman i was). We shared a room with some other little darlins that were in a bad way but Sam kept the room full of humour with his Spanish Inquisition! The nurses thought he was hilarious! I actually got very sick (in hospital, go figure hey) but had to hide it from the nurses or they'd send me home. AND NO WAY WAS I LEAVING MY BOY ! The plaster has to stay on for 6 weeks, it will be off 5 days before Sams 4th Birthday. Dammit, i kept telling everyone Sam was gonna be plastered (drunk...you know) on his birthday!!
He is managing really well and i am so darn proud of him. he scoots around the house on his bum because he cant walk as the plaster is right up to his thigh, with his leg in the bent position, this is so he doesnt put weight on his foot and totally screw up the whole operation.
My back is getting a major workout from carrying him when he has to go the toilet, to bed, etc etc.
BUT before we know it the 6 weeks will be over and his lil' foot will be straight as an arrow! Meantime we have lots of craft activities planned including a SAM scrapping book. I bought a zillion sheets of scrappin' paper from Natasha Burns so we are all set to go! Should be fun, frustrating at times too, no doubt, but we will muddle through.
LASTLY.....Thanks gals for all the well wishes.You are all so thoughtful and sweet. My heart is full :)
Shann (and Sam too)
