My nerves are shot. The Boy is fine, just fine but today at his 1 year well-visit he received three shots and a very violent 'how-do-you-do' from the dr. Sometimes on little circumcisions things stick when they are not supposed to stick. His Dad and I thought we had been vigilant about such things but apparantly not vigilant enough.

I need a stiff drink.

But again, he is fine. Playing quite happily now with his toys about to go nap.
Me too.

You know, I would have agreed with the below winter sport before this morning's appointment, but I am not feeling so tough now.

You Are Hockey

Tough, athletic, and not afraid of a fight.
You don't mind putting your body on the line!

A very wise person once told me that kids don't remember anything before the age of two.

That works well for the boy...not so well for you.

Sorry. I'm glad he is ok.

I'm not sure what this means, but it sounds
1. extremely traumatic for mama and baby
2. kinda yucky, too.

It's been my experience that things which are both traumatic and yucky really require lots of TLC - probably more for you than for him. Hope you can get it however you can.....

I just tucked my own Baby Boy into his crib -- I hope that your night is far more peaceful than your day.

juniper - I was vague mainly for reason one, but also because I didn't want to get weird people finding me using search engines.

Thanks pink shoes. Daddy is home now, the children's tylenol is working... and so is the beer for Mommy!

Oh, honey(s). This sounds like the day I took The Very, Very Little Princess to the plastic surgeon for a look-see at something on her forehead and ended up standing there while he took it off.
::knees grow weak::
I could have used a drink that night myself!
Hope you're all feeling better in the morning.

You are tough. You don't mind putting your body on the line. It's your child's body that you want most to protect. God bless you both, and may all of this be merely a distant memory very soon.

Thanks all for your encouraging thoughts. The Boy made it through the night without a Tylenol supplement which was good. We have to put some medication on it whenever we change his diaper, but other than those screams he seems to be doing better.

Sheepishly I admit that I was quite happy to return to the friendly confines of my office this morning.

Sitting here recovering from my own date with a doctor (and thinking that my procedure was a lot less traumatic than The Boy's...I find my legs crossing!)...I think it's harder to be with your loved ones when they are receiving "healthcare that hurts." A couple of years ago I had to take my mother to the ER for a very unpleasant procedure; they shooed me out of the room, but down the hallway I could hear some of what was going on, and it was pretty rough.
