This precious little pumpkin has never had so many people hover over him and console him. Which is good because it hurts!
Both ends of Pauly hurt- throat and bottom. I'm glad Julius is doing his surgeries separate. Bottom first, tonsils/adenoids second.
Pauly HATES his liquid pain medication. He holds it in his throat as long as possible. Once it takes effect he feels so much better so the "fight" to get it down is worth it. His food has to be well buttered up to slide down and he doesn't want to drink so we have to offer sips every 15 minutes he's awake. He's sleeping so much better than pre-surgery- so that is a miracle! He's quiet!! :o)
It still hurts so he cries. He cries because it hurts, he cries because he's sad, he cries because he's frustrated, he cries for his past, he cries for his future. Sometimes he just cries. Poor precious lamb. It is good for him to get it all out. Because we are here now to console him all the days of our lives. He will never cry alone again.
God Bless his beautiful amazing Country of birth for keeping him alive until we could get there. God Bless the staff, directors, psychologists and Drs who cared for him with very limited money, low funds and big budgets. God Bless them as they did the very best they could. But they had their own family too. Life is hard there. I will not complain about what I don't have, I have too much. Compared to them, I am beyond rich.
I know I complain about medical bills, I am self employed and the insurance I buy has failed us with the new changes and the boys. But I thank God for what we have! When we started Julius and Pauly's adoptions we used credit cards. We had previously had only one credit card. Now we have 3. We are praying that we will get the tax deduction quickly! (my business taxes won't be done till late Feb.) But in the meantime we are now using these credit cards for Noah-Moses and Jacob. Ouch! We don't have much wiggle room. But we won't worry. We are on a mission!
God is good! ((((HUGS))))
Please rejoice with us!
