This weekend I got to play with my friends here a lot! One of our favourite games is playing hospital. We all take turns playing doctor and we give the babies casts and x-rays and walkers. If the babies are bad, we give them morphine to stop them crying, but it’s just a pretend needle. My favourite game is still playing Hot Wheels in my room.
Tomorrow is my surgery and I think I am all ready. I had to do some really weird things today. My mom told me that I was getting a magic poop and fart potion from the nurse. She says the doctors are worried that I might fart in the middle of surgery and then they will drop all their instruments and run from the room, so it’s important that I do this. My nurse came in with a magic wand and did a bunch of funny stuff to make me laugh. She even gave me a whoopee cushion in case I lost my farts for a while. I don’t know what they gave me, but it was crazy! After they gave me a new Hot Wheels and said I did amazing. Then I had to have a shower with some crazy soap so I smell nice for the doctors. They really seem to like clean kids that don’t fart and poop. Then I went to have a snack in the kitchen because I can’t eat anything for a while after my surgery. I have to get up really early tomorrow, so I need to go to bed now. I may not write on my blog for a little while because I will be really tired after my surgery.
