    Two days ago my son had to have his tonsils and polyps removed, also have drains installed in his ears.

    This is the journey, since we went to a Hospital in the other end of Denmark (~500 km away from where we live, 4 hrs of driving on the highway).

    In the car, watching movies, he is wearing sedative stickers, so that it will not hurt when he gets an IV put in.

    This is the view from the hospital entrance, all the wards are various sea animals. We were admitted at the Octopus ward.

    He has changed clothes in to fashionable hospital clothing.

    Being prepped for surgery, his mother sitting next to him, more nervous than he was.

    Post-op not in the mood for much talking, just wanted to see Cars 2.

    Out cold before Cars 2 had ended.

    Since only one parent were allowed to stay the hospital over night, I had rented a room at a nearby hostel, 11 km from Ho.

    I did not have to rely on hospital food at least.

    Next day, my son is up and walking, waiting impatiently to get told he may leave.

    I spent a total of 500 Danish kroner = 83.1585 U.S. dollars for food (includes pitstop at highway gasstation for redbull, and a sandwich at the hospital café, cinnamon buns for breakfast at the hostel, 3x ½litres of soda which can be seen on the hostel room picture, and a pizza menu), and rent of hostel room.

    We spent a total of 1000 Danish kroner = 166.31700 U.S. dollars on gas for the cars (we borrowed my mother's when we went for the pre-op examination which was a week prioer to the operation, then my son's mother's parents' car (I love genetiv)

    All in all we roughly spent $250 US

    Moral of the story: If you need to sleep, watch Cars 2.

    Little Tylzen is a trooper.

    Poor Marius, I was wondering what you were saying in the captions of your pictures.

    It was an incredible place actually,
    For the price of 230 Danish kroner = 38.25291 U.S. dollars, I got a room with two beds (it was the smallest), free wifi, access to a swimming pool, spa, and exercise room.
    It is close to the west coast.


    Rochester, what I wrote in the captions on Facebook was basically updates about how things went. :)
