        • Thanks ladies.

          Wednesday
          Up bright and insanely early. We had to be at the hospital at 6:30 am and we live an hour away!
          The worst part of the prep for Daughter was the IV. When we got in to see her she had hidden her hand under the covers so she wouldn't have to look at it. Daughter went in to surgery at 9:30 and was out by 11:30. We got to see her at 12:30 and we were on our way home at 2:30. She came out of the anesthetic better this time. We told the anesthetist that she was sick coming out last time, so he said he'd give her something. It worked. Most of the rest of the day she spent sleeping.

          Hospital cafeteria "make your own" salad - romaine, veggies and (questionable) chicken cubes with Balsamic dressing
          Pepperettes & cheese at home
          Ham, scalloped potatoes, baby carrots, frozen cherries and a coconut heart

          • Oh, funny little story:

            Daughter left me "in charge" of her Skylander Lost Islands game on her iPad. I had to send her friend a message on Facebook. The conversation went like this:

            Me: Silly question: Do you know how to play lost islands? Daughter left me in charge of her game and I don't know how to use a Skylander to remove a troll camp.

            Friend: Hahahahahahahahahahaha! XD just click on the troll camp and a screen should come up and choose a skylander that isn't in use

            Me: 2 of them are in use. Do I buy one?

            Friend: On the side click through the different types..she should have one that's free

            Me: All on use. I guess the troll camp stays for a while thanks

            Friend: Lol that's alright it does no harm, just looks bad

            Me: K. Glad I could give you a laugh this morning

            Friend: Yes thank you lol and I hope everything goes smoothly with Daughter
            Only she didn't say Daughter
            Another funny thing? It's a little kid's game that Daughter and her friends play (Grade 12's)

            I also played 4 Pics 1 Word on her iPad. I was stuck on one of them and the lady sitting beside me asked me if I'd like the answer. She'd been stuck on the same one for days. Of course I said yes!

            • Time for some food photos??












              Instead of bread, I dipped my meat in the cheese (after it was cooked)

                  • The only main course I remembered to take a photo of belonged to the pescetarian in our group.
                    And how could I NOT take a photo of it??



                    She kinda freaked a little 'cause it was "looking at her" so the bus driver (an awesome local guy - who by the way did an amazing job pronouncing my name ) fileted it for her.

                    This was the Tapas selection in the window where we had lunch one day in Barcelona



                    This is the wine wall over our table:



                    And from another really cool angle:



                    And meatcicles in the market:

                      Yes, that was the only thing I had for lunch

                          • Thursday
                            Daughter slept most of the evening Wed and then slept in the bed we'd set up in my office. I slept on a foam cushion on the living room floor so I could hear Daughter if she needed me in the night. She was up once for a pain pill and an ice pack. We had to drive into London and the Fowler Kennedy clinic to have her dressing changed at 9:15am. We came straight home. I spent the afternoon helping Daughter and creating and gathering props for the upcoming play. Play practice was from 4-6pm. It was a blocking practice. My 1st experience blocking. The 1st director did none of this. I wish this director had been my 1st. An easy relaxing evening and then I slept on the cushion again. Daughter needed me in the night.

                            Friday

                            Suffer Son stayed home with Daughter because I had a supply job. Very easy day. My lunch was a pepperette, some Brie, an avocado and a coconut heart. After school I ate another coconut heart and a few macadamia nuts. A little shopping after, nothing major. A bottle of Balsamic, some small props for the upcoming play "Death of a Dead Guy". While standing in line at Home Sense, I resisted buying a dark chocolate bar, even though my Dragon wanted it desperately. Back in the car I ate a Lara bar. On the way home Daughter texted me asking me to pick her up some frozen peaches, so I stopped at the local grocery store, where the Dragon managed to put a bag of Real Fruit Gummies in my basket...and which I ate on the way home...

                            I opened one of my wine bottles from France and had a glass before supper. I was so full from my Dragon attack that I couldn't finish my supper



                            After supper my parents, sister and niece came over for a visit. (My parents had flown in today from Florida. They left their boat in Florida and had to come back for a couple of weeks because they couldn't stay in the US for more than 6 months) We had a good visit, they had lots of stories to tell.

                            Daughter threw up her supper at bedtime. Poor thing.

                            • Daughter threw up again after breakfast. She's been feeling sick all day

                              Both times it was about an hour after she took one of her meds.

                                Some pain meds cause nausea and vomiting. Try small sips of clear liquids, Popsicles, little sips of soup - but wait about 2 hours after taking meds. Hope it helps.
