The wires are GONE!

Just wanted to let y’all know that my 14 year old’s surgery to get the wires off yesterday went great. Surgery was at 1:00, and we were heading home around 3:30. He still has to avoid really crunchy stuff for a few weeks, but is delighted to have REAL food back! I may never get him to eat ice cream again, though! Oh, and his weight at surgery on the hospital scales? Half a pound more than it was 6 weeks ago! Not bad for 6 weeks of liquid diet…

  1. Wonderful news! Will the doctors be seeking out advice from you on how to maintain the weight of future patients?

  2. So glad it went well!

  3. Awesome and congratulations! Also, thanks for being my first comments Mary!

  4. Hot dog, I knew you wouldn't let that Dr. get the best of you!! Your boy will make up for lost time now, I'll bet. He might eat you out of house and home, and I'll bet you'll be fine with that, too. 🙂

  5. I still can't get That Bratwurst out of my head…

    So happy to hear it all went well!

  6. You must be so happy to see your son feeling better. 🙂 Any chance that he can play baseball now, or has that ship pretty much sailed?

  7. Oh, to have had too much ice cream. Unfortunately I do not intend to break my jaw, therefore I must gain self-control. Rats.

  8. Yea!! Good for him! Good for you!

    If you need to get rid of any ice cream, just holler.

  9. Beck, no, the season is done this week. And abc momma, as you might guess, there are plenty of people here who are also willing to 'help' my son with his share of the ice cream consumption! hehe

  10. Awesome!! 🙂

  11. WOOOHOOO!!!! Rejoicing with ya'll! : )

  12. oh good! way to go on defying that nurse who said 'his weight will drop,' with such certainty. ha!

  13. I am glad to hear that your son will be eating regular food soon! Now he can start eating you out of house and home again! 😉

  14. Well, that is good news! I'm sure he'll be happy when he can get back to eating steaks, though.
