Did I mention he was a pro-barfer? Well, I take that back. I got projectiled on last night in the hotel room. The poor kid threw up until 10pm. I'm not sure if it was from surgery, from the happy juice IV injection before we left, the antibiotics, or the Pepsi sips I let him have. Poor kid did not feel well, and he was in a lot of pain from his "hot pee" which is probably from the catheter. 
Eli begged to skype us last night. It started out good, but eventually everyone was crying and my 10 year old was saying "I want my mommy home" over and over. To see it versus just hear it makes everything that much worse. Abe went to bed crying for his mommy too. On the other hand, it was a great release for all of us. This situation affects the entire family. It brings out the good, the bad, the everything. Like on Sunday when Nate calls as were walking the Dish, enjoying the scenery, and he is beyond mad because one of my children scratched "Hello!" with a penny on his car door for no reason. And let's just say that Abe can't spell. And you wonder why I blog. You just can't make this stuff up.

Despite the mess, Manny says to me between yaks...."Mommy, I have a new password." ...a password for what? "Mommy, I just have a new password." Um, ok. What is it? And he says it like this... "I. Have. The. Best. Mom. Ever."
Manny woke up this morning with a small fever and rash around his Left ear. I have photos and a message into both doctors this morning. Please let us go home to our family tomorrow. While we have to return to Cali next week, my kiddos need us home.
