Will he remember? Maybe not...so I'd best blog it. I'm sure he'll be fine with that as HE was snapping photos of himself. ::snort:: Yes, HE took these photos.
We checked him in. I went to wait....and pick up meds....and do Bible study...and make retreat lists....and read a new book.....and then the nurse came out sporting a big smile.
We were told when Jared had his tonsils out to remember that he is a "violent drunk". Well - something HAPPENED. I'd warned them, they were prepared. I worried a bit about his actions under the drugs, given Michael's recent post on sanctification.
BUT....this kid was happy, friendly, cracking jokes, making expansive gestures....the nurse put him in the wheelchair and he was raising his arms high and pretending to be on a roller coaster, complete with noises. They had a great time with him. I said, "OK, Jared, settle down!"
I was told to keep him quiet and not let him talk. Yeah. RIGHT. He was cracking one joke after another. He did wake up a couple of times during the surgery. NONE of the older four wanted to socialize after they had their wisdom teeth pulled. I HAD to go check Michael's office one more time. I left Jared in the car with a stern warning, "Don't get out, don't talk, don't sing, don't move...just stay". He did...but took pictures.
We're keeping a quiet house, working on school, drugging Jared and hoping that he recovers quickly.
Living all of life before the face of God...
