We had King of The WooHoo’s surgery on Tuesday. It went really well, tho I do have to admit I teared up a bit as they put him to sleep, took him out of my arms and put him on the table. I really didn’t want to let him go, and they had to tell me a few times that they needed to take him, and put him on the table. Not because I was refusing, but because it really wasn’t clicking… if that makes any sense. But, yes. Surgery went well, and his latch is amazing. Like 1,000x better. So, yay for that. He has been having a hard time with sleeping since the surgery, and I’m not really sure why that is. He started speech/swallowing therapy the next day and that went very well. His therapist (an awesome dirty hippie) requested that we wean him off the woohoo’s, so… he’ll no longer be King of the WooHoo’s… I’ll have to come up with an appropriate nickname, when that happens. She also said no sippy cups, but he is to have straw cups, as they will strengthen his jaws. Also, he needs to be at a 90 degree angle when seated, and have three opportunities a day (by the end of this month) to eat food. Some puree, some solid food. I’m quite glad he’s in speech therapy, because I’m beginning to worry that he has a bit of a delay speech wise. He can say momma, ahda (dada), hi and uhoh. Hi tho, seems to be a random fluke, and he has never actually called me momma, tho, he does often call his daddy ahda. :/ There are other small things, like he doesn’t seem to understand that I’m talking to him when I say his name, and obviously doesn’t follow any directions. I dunno, maybe I over worry. Heh, thats like saying MAYBE a bear poops in the woods.

The hubby called me today to ask about Princess Snarf Poppers 504 plan today. I’m not sure how a 504 plan is supposed to work, but apparently his friend (whose children have 504 plans) said that the superintendent is supposed to mail you a copy of the plan??? We never got one, and Princess Snarf Popper has told me that they aren’t doing all the things that were in the plan. My husband wants to go in the school, guns blazing, but… I just want to say screw it all. I dunno.

Well, Princess Snarf Popper and the hubby are home from shoe shopping. Off to make dinner – wild mushroom soup and grilled cheese sandwiches. Yum, yum.
