    great post, these are all great ideas to help take there minds of not feeling well or the pain they have after a surery, when my son had his tonsils out at 10 I stopped and got the newest Star Wars Series on DVD 3 movies we snuggled on our large couch in the basement and watched them together, it really helped him forget about the pain and it was great to get to spend that one on one time with him, thanks for sharing all these great ideas

    Stickers are awesome!
    And if there is a fever we do a bubble bath swim party! They get to wear their bathing suits in the bath and we blow bubbles and I may bring in a special bath toy (aka tuperware).
