Sounds of Silence

M – Again, another pictureless post. Mango had a hernia operation a short while ago. Things got complicated (after the event). She has been sick for a week+ (vomiting and more), so D took her in to see the specialist earlier today. Mango had an ultrasound done and from what I can gather, there was some loose tissue buildup causing a mass similar to a cyst. It was recommended for her to take to different pain meds alternating every two hours while away. That is just for pain management as the doctor seems to think her body will heal itself given time. It sounds like she been in pain for over a week, especially when trying to eat, as she threw up many times daily. Surprisingly, she very rarely cried for any length of time, just shying away from food. As for the specialist, to be fair, she did tell us to contact her any time we became too worried about Mango. Also, the doctor told us that she should start feeling better within the next few days. Of course, since she is getting pain medication, she is not going to daycare. I hope she does not become a maladjusted individual in our society of expected norms. It doesn’t help that we are sick too, especially with legal stuff that needs attending to tomorrow and in the near future.  Some days are tougher than others.

Onwards we go.


  1. I will be sure to say lots of prayers for little Mango, and for you guys as well. Hang in there!!!

  2. Thanks nola, we’ll take all the support we can get.

  3. …Murphy’s Law strikes again…hope things will get better, soon… but everything takes time… oh how frustrating situations can be!?! Hang in! It can and will get better!!

  4. Things are already improving, as the daycare has agreed to take Mango back already, even though she is still recovering.
