Surgery update- recovery

Today is Thursday.  It has been a rough day for Nik but he's managing.  I did end up giving him one dose of tylenol w/ codiene today.  His bandage has fallen off his head and well, I improvised w/ an ace bandage.  Poor kid looks like a scene from a Halloween movie.  He didn't sleep comfortably last night but who could w/ that thing on your head.  He did sleep.  Woke up at 5am crying.  Gave him some meds then too.  We kept things quiet today.  Nik is still shocked at the sound of silence when he takes his implant off.  He's getting used to it, not terrified of being silent any more.  Just still getting used to it.  He keeps his implant on till the last minute when he has to lay down.  We are also getting used to him not having any hearing on that side.  All in all, doing okay and as expected for just having surgery.  I "may" go to the school w/ him for an hour tomorrow for Alyona's science fair.  We'll see how it goes.  

Nik's classmates sent him a box in the mail!  Very sweet of them all.  Filled w/ goodies to keep him busy.  It even had 4 juice boxes and he immediately gave 2 of them to the "littles" that were here today.  Had puzzles, markers, notepads, etc. for him to do.  He's been working on the spiderman puzzle.  Just was a really sweet gesture.  We also have someone coming over tonight to cook us dinner.  Can you believe it?!  It actually couldn't have come at a better time.  I'll be honest.  I am just plain exhausted this week.  I know it's from lack of sleep & all the doc appointments we've had but it is truly exhausting.  So, having someone take that load off really made my day.  I can hardly wait. 

More happening here.  Will eventually get caught up on this blog.  Well, probably not.  But, I'll give it a shot.  LOL.  Enjoy your week.  Warren is taking the teens to the Fear Farm maybe tomorrow.  I may do some one on one time w/ one of the girls this weekend.  We'll see.  Think I'll take Alyona.  Do a little shopping.  She wants to spend her tooth fairy mouse money at the dollar store.  Easy trip and top it off w/ an ice cream and some conversation.  Got to go.  Still need to pick up this place.  More to come.
