hooray and goodnight

thank you so much for all of your virtual hand holding and support on twitter and facebook and instagram and here and there and everywhere.  you are a very sweet and supportive bunch.  mwah.  hooray for you guys.

the tube procedure was SO quick, as i knew it would be. we were in and out of the surgery center within two hours. the worst part was how upset and confused and groggy he was when he woke up from the anesthesia, but that didn't last long. the other worst part was when i handed him over to the nurse and she walked away.  but really, it was no big deal.  it was a good thing.  the ENT said both ears were full of fluid, and that he should have some instant relief.  hooray for ear tubes.

tomorrow we will all wake up in regular moods and eat our regular breakfast and whine about regular things have a regular day.

hooray for regular.

(i have now officially been awake for almost two days straight. goodnight.)

  5. I'm so glad it went well. My little one went under this spring and you're right about the two hardest parts---watching him cry when he woke up and seeing him head off into surgery (though in my case, my little boy walked off of his own accord---they reported he climbed up on the operating table and put the mask on his face all by himself!)

    And I echo the lovely feeling of everything being regular afterwards. Boring (regular/normal) is a gift.

  6. So happy that everything went well. The anesthesia is sooo hard! Our girl had to have surgery last summer and when she woke up and I wasn't there it broke my heart. She was really clingy for the next few days - which they warned us about. I hope things are back to normal soon. Like you said, hooray for regular! xoxo

  8. Yes, handing them over to the nurse is the worst part. I was hysterical, so I just feel your pain so much.

    But I am so happy everything went well. I hope he gets so much relief very quickly!

    Love to you all!!!!!

  11. I'm so glad you're both back at home! Rest up. [I wish I could bring you a meal]. [Or at least a bottle of wine]. [Do you like wine?].
