Botanical garden, Berkeley, January 2012
Let me tell you, having your kid get their tonsils out really sucks.
I'm really hoping this is worth it, because last night, when I was awake with a screaming, thrashing, kicking child who refuses to take his medicine in the night, from roughly midnight to 4 a.m., with breaks when he'd fall asleep, then wake up twenty minutes later, hysterical once more, and I felt so helpless and bad for him, and also so frustrated that he wouldn't just swallow the medicine, this simple thing to help himself, I had that thought I knew I would have at least once in the recovery process: This was a really bad idea.
A friend of mine recently posted this quote:
If we are facing in the right direction, all we have to do is keep on walking.
I am hoping that we are facing in the right direction.
