The Brave Little Toaster
Yes, actually, Aaron does call Lanny "Toaster". And Lanny was beyond brave when he got his tonsils out on Thursday. He is doing great, and is loving all the ice cream and popsicles. We went down to Fort Collins on Thursday and I was amazed when he showed no fear. He calmly did everything the doctors and nurses asked of him. He didn't even get upset when they rolled him away from us for the surgery (this is exceptional considering we can't leave his room at night until he is asleep.) I got a bit upset as they took him away, but he was super-brave. He also did well coming out of anesthesia, it was horrible to watch, but no mom ever wants to see their child suffer. He has been very good about drinking fluids and hasn't hardly complained at all. He did give a bit of advice to Louie, which I will pass on.
Aaron went to pick up the girls from a friends and then came to get Lanny and I. The girls were thrilled to see Lanny and as he got in, aside from huge grins, I could hear squeals of, "Lanny", and "Brudder"! I didn't get to see his face, but Aaron said he was most serious as he loving looked at his sisters and said, "Louie, you do not want to get your tonsils out!"
I think that statement pretty much sums up the whole ordeal.
