My kids have been asking for our box of Halloween costumes since August. When they pulled the costumes out they found these old red pjs (I think I tried to make JP wear them one year for a clown costume) and they have seriously provided HOURS of entertainment. Who knew?

Some of the funny things Jared said while "waking up" from his appendectomy last week:

"You (the surgeons, nurses & techs) all look like Smurfs"

He sang "You are so beautiful to me, can't you see, can't you see..." to me as I walked down the hall of the surgical suite.

He was VERY concerned about the catheter they placed and continued to voice his concern over the possibility of something being "broken" or certain "functions" that may have been damaged.

When asked about his pain on the pain scale (1-10) he told the nurse "it's like a 6.66 'cause it feels like the devil is inside there poking me with his little stick".

He also made several advances at me, requested graham crackers, cheeseburgers and peanut butter and put the plastic throw-up bag over his head.

Noah keeps getting mixed up and saying that Dad had his independence removed.

Jared swears he won't show his face in the OR ever again and I'm sure he will be met with giggles from certain nurses and techs who may ride the elevator with him. Next time I will bring a video camera.
