|Blueberry bush in bloom|
We've had crazy weather, jumping from temps in the 70s, then plummeting into the 30s and 40s. We've not planted anything in our garden yet because we keep having frosts/freezes! This week is Spring Break, so hopefully as my guys recuperate from surgery, we'll be able to get outside a little.
Which brings me to the next part of our saga.
On Thursday, hubby had his gall bladder removed.
On Friday, son #3 had his tonsils and adenoids removed.
On Saturday, son #2 stopped in on his way to Denver to start a new job - he is no longer my 'Airman Son'!
I feel a little bit like I've been thrown back to the newborn days when I had to get up every 2-3 hours to feed my wee one... only this time, I don't get to enjoy new baby smell and cuddles and coos, I'm just giving pain meds and checking to make sure everyone is getting a little rest.
Thankfully, we have been blessed with lots of visits and help from family and friends.

Monday~ Friends from school are bringing soup and ice cream (for the tonsil patient)
Tuesday~ Sliced turkey from HoneyBaked Ham. Not sure what else to go with (courtesy of my parents)
Wednesday~ I'm hopeful that by this point, hubs will feel almost normal. I'm expecting more soreness from ds#3, although I hope it tapers off. I'm thinking I may have to start cooking again at this point ;)
Thursday, Friday & Saturday~ the appetites of my patients will dictate the menu. Nothing too spicy for hubs, nothing too textural for ds#3.
I'd love for you to share any experience with meals for tonsil recovery!!
