Josh has naughty ears.
There is always an infection.
So yesterday, he got tubes.
Luckily his tonsils looked good - so no worries there. Just a quick 15 minute surgery for the tubes.
Josh and Daddy in the waiting room.
Josh was begging begging begging
for a drink and food.
We arrived at 0645 -
Surgery was scheduled for 0745
In the Pre-Op room We got back about 0720
Cuddling with Daddy
Watching Curious George
Glad to have pup-pup to keep Josh company
...while we waited...
Isn't this the cutest thing you've ever seen?!!
Reading stories with Daddy...
At 0800 Josh got medication to help him relax
Then we went for a wagon ride
He was waving, and blowing kisses -
Until the medication kicked in
and then he kept falling over
So we headed back to our room to cuddle.
Finally, cuddling Momma
The medication had kicked in.
Josh couldn't hold his head up.
He was drooling, and his eyes were so droopy.
It was pretty funny.
Josh went back into surgery about 0820, and was back to us about 0840. He was happy when he got to us, he was kissing all the nurses, and waving and then, the medication wore off and we had a monster on our hands... screaming, kicking, biting, hitting, scratching...he was one unhappy boy.
We packed up and headed home at 0900. After a good nap Josh woke up to find Grandma and Grandpa Marshall in our living room. He was super excited!
We spent the rest of the day enjoying time with Nick's parents. It was so thoughtful and nice of them to come down check on Josh.
Josh was spoiled! Thanks everyone for your support!
He got balloons and a cute stuffed puppy from the Marshall family (Aunt Adrienne, Uncle Gus, and Kids)
Balloons from Grandma and Grandpa Rawlinson
Bubbles and Treats from the Webbs
Already we can tell a difference in Josh. He is much happier He acts excited when he hears something new - it must sound different to him, without all the fluid in his ears.
Hopefully soon - he'll start to talk but for now, we love his cute sign language!
