    It was yummy.  I got chocolate ice cream with brownie, strawberries, and fudge swirl in a plain waffle bowl.  Like it size.  It really hit the spot :).

    Good evening ladies. I just finished giving Edmund his bath and retaping his lip. Its so hard for him and he cries through it and that makes me cry through it.

    Aww Ciara. I really hope it gets easier for you guys. 

    I'm here for a few minutes while FI's in the shower. I've had a terrible headache all day. I'm hoping it goes away before work tomorrow.

    </div><div>My uncle was born with club feet.. Now he was born in the late 30s and things have changed a lot since then. But my grandmother spent everyday for years working with his feet to get him to walk.  For the time it was innovative.   He screamed and screamed.  It was heart breaking for everyone involved..  It was close to child abuse.</div><div>
    </div><div> But you know what?? My uncle learned how to walk.  It was not easy, but by the time I came around in the late 60's he had special shoes and could walk on his own ,</div><div>
    </div><div>Point of the story is, it might not be fun for you or Edmund, but it's what needs to be done and he will thank you (maybe not publicly ) in the future and he will never remember the emotions you are gong through to make his life better.</div><div>

    What differentiates an average host and a great host is anticipating unexpressed needs and wants of their guests.  Just because the want/need is not expressed, doesn't mean it wouldn't be appreciated.

    ditto what Lynda said.

    He will not remember this either. It stinks for you and for him right now, but it won't be long lasting pain for him.

    When my nephew was about 2 they were going to put tubes in his ears and he was crying when they were trying to put him under. He was saying to my brother who was in the room with him "Daddy don't let them, daddy make them stop". Absolutely heartbreaking, but he doesn't remember in it. It's a story we tell now. Obviously no where near as severe as Edmund, but what I'm saying is, as heartbreaking it is for you, he will have no memory of it.

    Thanks ladies! I'm really glad that he won't remember any of it. I know that it needs to be done since its the simplest of the ways to help close the gap. I'll be okay doing it eventually. These first few days though are going to be another story.

    The soccer game was a lot of fun. I spent half of the first half in the bathroom feeding him and changing him and then the second half I watched from the lounge because he wasn't happy that I put his earmuffs on. We got to see and talk to DNB and her husband for a little bit.

    Yes, I really believe the trauma to the parents outweighs any comfort the their kid might get from having them there.  Most of the time, as soon as the parents are out of sight, the kids are fine.  Occasionally I get one that tries to kill me, but for the most part, they are just fine.  The attitude of the parents has a tremendous effect on the way the kid behaves.  You would swear some of them think they are being led to a death chamber by the way their parents act.  I get that they are scared for their kid, but they scare the crap out of their kids.  Of course, I'm talking about kids that are probably 2+.

    Hello!
    Barbie, I think you should just have it announced or put it in the programs, I know it's not a normal thing, but it's also so important for you to be comfortable and not in pain on your wedding day!

    Happy Birthday Lee!

    KJB-I'm not sure why he was in there for it. I think it was just when they were taking him back.

    When my little niece had to be admitted to the hospital for pneumonia. She kept trying to put her coat on and saying it was time to go home. I know for her when they were putting the IV in, my SIL had to leave and my brother stayed in the room.

    When I was little getting stitches in my forehead after I was hit by the car, my dad had to leave the room when I was getting the stitches lol. He couldn't handle it. I was flipping 12 haha.

    oh and Hi KJB!!!

    The IMF guy I mentioned last night is being taken to SVU here in NYC for tests before appearing at hearing tomorrow.

    He was going to run for president of France before this went down

    Some hospitals have a policy where parents can come back to the OR until the child is asleep.  I just don't think that's a good idea for a lot of reasons.<div>and hi!</div>
