The Next Few Days
So, it turns out that this surgical procedure actually bothers the patient more than the doctors and nurses say it will. It also turns out that a toddler who has just undergone a surgical procedure, and who is feeling terribly sore and awful, is very very cranky. Also, I feel horrible when I'm taking care of his wound site and he is saying, "Ow. Ow. Ow." and then hobbles away in obvious pain. It also turns out that even though I feel very badly for him, and I am very sympathetic towards him and what we made him go through, my patience unfortunately has its limits when dealing with the cranky child.
Today was a very very long day. I'm looking forward to the end of the week when the wound isn't so fresh.
