Always Have A Dream

Always have a dream
Forget about the days when its been cloudy,
but don't forget your hours in the sun.
Forget about the times you've been defeated,
but don't forget the victories you've won.
Forget about mistakes that you can't change now,
but don't forget the lessons that you've learnt.
Forget about misfortunes you encounter,
but don't forget the times you luck has turned.
Forget about the days when you've been lonely,
but don't forget the friendly smiles you've seen.
Forget about the plans that didn't seem to work out right,
but don't forget to always have a dream.

The big day has come & has almost gone!

Cody's surgery went very well, it only took about 40 min. The longest time was the 3-4 hour wait afterwords, before he could go home. He did very good while they were getting him ready. Only one of us could go back in the actual surgery suite while they were putting him to sleep. All the women we walked by, the Techs and RN's, were saying 'Hi' to him, and a few of them commented on how blue his eye's were. I think he was kind of embarrassed. The anesthesiologist asked Cody if he could call him 'Codeman', he thought that was cool. Cody had to mention that his Uncle Andy calls him that too! After the sx the Doctor talked to us and told us that both tonsils were enlarged and filled with nasty (gunk) bacteria. So he said it was a good thing that he was having them out. Lot's of rest and TLC for the next two weeks, and he was strict about that. Liquids and soft foods. Boy, let me tell you he was cranky, I mean 'REALLY' cranky! We couldn't understand him when he tried to talk, which is understandable. He was getting really anxious and upset because the back of his mouth and throat was still numb, making it feel like he couldn't swallow. But now that he's home and that numb feeling is gone, he's doing much better. ;0) Mike went to Tree House Toys & Books and got him some Thomas the Train stuff, during the waiting period before going home. My Dad stopped over, after we got home, to visit. He & my sister got him a couple games for his Leapster, a little Lego car kit, and some writing tablets. So I think he's making out pretty well! I wanted to take a pic to post and this one isn't very good, because as I mentioned our good camera took a dump, and besides he was still grumpy & didn't want his pic taken. O'well Take care & smile, like I always tell Cody(and doesn't always listen)
