Life with Drugs

Graham had surgery this morning. Nothing significantly wrong, just a preventative surgery that we opted for while we have great health insurance. But in addition to general anesthesia, he had to to have a spinal block -- basically a baby epidural. When he woke up, he couldn't feel his legs, but he saw a toy in the recovery room that he really wanted to play with. Mean parents that Jason and I are, we did our best to help our splay-legged, I-can't-even-crawl, I'm-going-to-crack-my-head son across the hard, tile floor to the toy. It's obvious we're abusive, for as the surgeon passed the room, Graham yelled, "You GO AWAY!"

Hope Graham recovers well! I remember after Isaac had an MRI one time (he's had way too many) and was really woozy so I had to watch him sooo closely. He'd get up and just fall over!
