On one of short walk abouts, Oliver slid into my favorite spot on the couch, complete with ice pack for his "owie" and told me, "I need to get better now." So I made him a couple of waffles and let him "heal" for a while longer.

As you breathe in, you try to keep the little piece on the side between the two arrows and the big piece in the center rising at a steady pace. Helps prevent the short shallow breaths that tend to happen after surgery and therefore helps prevent pneumonia. ANYWAY, I thought I would share this with you because I grabbed it to do a set of big deep breaths and found...
Needless to say, I didn't do my breathing exercises but I got a good workout trying not to laugh and desperately holding my belly so it wouldn't hurt.
Yeah, I'm not getting any air through that mouthpiece!
