Although my Darling Boy’s recovery is going better than expected from his tonsillectomy and adenoidectomy last Friday, it’s still not fast enough for him. He can’t quite grasp the fact that even if his throat isn’t THAT sore he can’t go fishing.
Was it only just a week ago he was participating in the local Fishing Derby catching some rather decent-sized salmon? For him, it’s as simple as Black and White!
The fact he’s had surgery, albeit not an organ transplant, it was surgery never-the-less, and his entire body is now working together ensuring him a speedy recovery. He doesn’t appreciate how his body NEEDS rest so it can heal.
For him it’s a simple case of he wants to fish so for the rest of week I fear I’m going to hear a lot of… “mum, how much longer?”
