Kylie got her tonsils removed on Thursday, which was a much-needed surgery after 6 cases of Strep Throat and many sore throats this school year. Dr. Zapalac did a great job, of course, and Kylie has taken it like a champ! She is so tough! I can't believe how well she has handled the pain so far. She misses solid foods though. You wouldn't think a kid could get tired of ice cream, but I think she has reached that point. The pain meds make her a bit nauseous too, which really adds to the fun of it all. Poor baby. I am always amazed at how strong kids can be. Even more tough than adults at times. I have a good friend that works with pediatric cancer patients, and I asked her one time how she does it. I would think it would be such a difficult thing to be around all the time. She said those kids are actually some of most positive, strong kids anyone could ever meet. I bet she is right! I bet it would be truly inspiring to be around them as they fight such a huge battle so bravely. We could all learn so much from those kiddos. I know I have already learned so much from mine!
Another fun thing in our household... we have three new furbabies! We got three brother dwarf hamsters! Rocky, Turbo, and Tiger are super cute and fun to watch. Kylie's we nick-named Turbo or Spaz as I like to call him. That little booger is so hyper. He gets on the wheel and his little legs run SOOOO fast. It is hilarious! The kids have really enjoyed them, and I am glad Kylie has something to cheer her up!
