You all are so fantastic it is really amazing. Last night I read all your comments and well wishes going out to Soeren. Keeping him in your thoughts and prayers is what touched me.
The surgery went really well. What amazed me is how strong this little guy is. He said to me just before they rolled him off "Hey mum! Don't worry I'm gonna be fine!" This is actually after he got some syrup that made him a little ... well behave like he had a few shots of tequilla ;-)
It took just half an hour and before we knew it he was out again. Sure there were a few tears, but on the whole he looked great, considering what they had just done. Anyway, we stayed in the clinic for a few hours, as he slept for a bit and got a final check up. But as soon as he was fit again he was hungry.
I was under the impression he would not want to even think about food but hey he is a Foodie's son right? After a strawberry yoghurt and two ice lollies ( he was only supposed to eat these kind of things) he told the doc that he was craving for a big cheeseburger. She cracked up!
We broguht him home and he was such a happy trooper ... slept for 2 hours and wanted more to eat.
Finally at dinner he got a huge portion of pasta with meatballs and tomato sauce. The beam on his face would light up the darkest of place.
We both thank you for your support and would like to send you huge hugs and these Strawberry Kisses.
See you Monday with a new tiffin idea!
