Otter had his tonsils out on Tuesday and he's made virtually no progress in terms of recovery. He's still in quite a bit of pain and I'm beginning to wonder if this is out of the norm.
At first I felt SO bad for him and catered to his every need. "It's okay sweetie, I know it hurts, Mommy's here, it's gonna be okay, let me hold you." yatta yatta
5 days later, I'm about ready to L.O.S.E. M.Y. M.I.N.D! I'm trying so hard to be understanding and not freak out and yell to STOP WHINING ALREADY. I feel like such a horrible mom, because I'm sure he's in the same amount of pain as he was that first day, if not worse. I'm just not being so sympathetic.
I'm going to call the doctor tomorrow and see what's up. In the meantime, I'll do my best to be the loving caring sympathetic mom I'm supposed to be...
