well, i might regret these words tomorrow or later in the week, but kieran is doing great. he stayed in recovery at the hospital for a couple hours and wasn't thrilled about taking pain medicine but we convinced him it was the only way to go home--something he was very eager for. as soon as we got home a little after lunch time he was in greats spirits and immediately ate three jello cups and two yogurt tubes. his grandparents couldn't believe he'd even had surgery, he was chatting a playing and explaining all the star wars characters to me (yes, i know, it's crazy that i've never seen those movies, i know!) only hours later he was having some bread and cookies! the doctor said he's fine to do whatever he's comfortable with so we'll go with it. we were surprised he wasn't more tired but maybe tomorrow that'll happen and he says his throat doesn't even hurt.

the doctor had said his adenoids weren't too bad but his tonsils were pretty big and his ears had lots of junk in them. he already seems to be hearing a bit better and once he heals we'll be curious to see if he breathes out of his nose now!

thanks so much for all the well wishes, keep your fingers crossed that things continue to go so smoothly. so far we're so glad to have done this and hope that weeks from now it's a distant memory!

you will be relieved to know that kieran has had lots of ice cream by now!! but i can't help it when he sometimes chooses animal crackers over push-up pops-why, i don't know, i think it's crazy too!

darcie--the get well cards from the class were soooooooo cute! tell the girls it's so nice that they're thinking of him. he's really bored and he can't wait to see everyone again :)
