It's been a rough week since Aidan's surgery. He seemed to be in a lot of pain, even with the pain medication, and had some trouble sleeping at night. We couldn't figure out if it was due to being in pain or the congestion that still seemed to be bothering him since before his surgery. We can tell that he's also getting frustrated not being able to feed himself. He's still on a soft diet and not allowed to feed himself for fear of poking his newly reconstructed palate with a utensil.
Upon the recommendation of the folks at Children's Hospital, Julie took Aidan in to see our pediatrician. She ended up prescribing an antibiotic. So here we are, two days later, and Aidan seems to be much better. He seems to be finally getting back to his perky self.
Here's evidence below at our visit to the pumpkin patch today.
Lily picked out a pumpkin. Actually, that's not the one she picked out. It just was convenient for a pose.
Our tradition of measuring Lily at the big ruler at the pumpkin patch continued this year.
And Aidan was just wondering, "Hey, can I have a refill on this fine hot chocolate?"
And this time Aidan got the chance to be included in one of our family traditions.
