Week Forty-eight

And back to Houston we go…
Zane and I drove back to Houston following the surgery in Dallas and spent some much needed days resting and sleeping. Zane was doing well with his post-op pain, except when it was time to take medication. Because the people who make pain medication stick so much citric acid in the solution, it burns like fire going down the back of the throat. I even tried some, it burned my throat, and I hadn’t had surgery on it! Poor guy.

Mid- week, Zane and Lily headed over to Pop and NéeNée’s house for more grandparental fun.
