|Minute 1....typical happy Luke.|
|Minute 3....fingers still in mouth....happy-ish.|
|Minute 5.....trying to look for help.|
|Minute 7....hmmm....this toy could make it all worth it.|
|Minutes 10-15.....forget the toy! Calvin is trying to scream over Luke "It's OKAY Luke!"|

The bad news is that Calvin still can't have nuts. Apparently he has a pretty good shot at outgrowing this, so we'll try again in a year.
The other bad news is that it cost us a $60 copayment to eat a rice-size portion of Jiff peanut butter and go home.
The good news is that Cal and I had a fabulous time on our date. Here is our picture of the tree guys (embellished with rain jackets, umbrellas, lunch boxes, and a few of their imaginary friends) to prove it!

His swelling is going down.....his lip looks pretty normal today! Except for the "crumbs" as Calvin calls the stitches, I might not be able to see there was ever a problem with his lip.
I attribute a portion of Jack's happiness these last 2 days to "Birdie" as we are calling him.
Dear CT Scan nurse,
Though you thought you were totally dissed when Jack did not even look at or touch the bird you so sweetly gave him, he is now Jack's new best friend (co-best friend with Mr. Ducky, anyway). He is carried about tucked under his chin or dragged alongside by a wing everywhere he goes. Even when Jack was deliriously waking up from surgery, his first words were for Birdie to be returned to his hands when he kept dropping him.

Jack fell off the top of the play structure in our neighborhood this morning....6+ feet off the ground...and landed on his face. 10 hours, a nasal bone fracture, 2 sets of stitches on his outside and inside lip, surgery, and many tears later we are home. I am so thankful for our friend and neighbor Rebecca, friends from church, and friends at the hospital who made their day busy to operate on Jack and take care of us. We are so blessed.
