One hurtin' cowpoke

No run today, but I have an excuse. We had to have the medium Little Jogger at the hospital in Dubuque (a half hour drive) at 6:45. He had his tonsils and adenoids removed.

He's been having recurring sore throats for a couple of years, that have been really bad this spring, so they finally decided that his tonsils have to go. They will run some tests, but they are hoping that this will end it. I hope so, too, because the poor little guy is pretty miserable right now. And they say it's going to get worse for a few days before it gets better. We're trying to keep him on pain medicine and popsicles, but I can't help feeling that five days of heavy sedation would do the trick. Not for him, for us.
